Our Chesapeake Bay is suffering "death by a thousand cuts." The next cut may be a small tidal pond off the Severn River. Fox Creek has a narrow shoal inlet that makes it a unique environment as a fish hatchery. Healthy beds of subaquatic vegetation thrive at the mouth of the creek. But in 2004, an association of waterfront landowners applied to dredge through those beds at the inlet to open a channel for large boats. In August 2007, the Maryland Department of the Environment (MDE) recommended denial of the application, stating, among its findings, that "historic use [by boats]

Eighty years ago, much of the Mid-Atlantic was recovering from the Great Hurricane of 1933, which struck Aug. 23, 1933. The storm caused widespread destruction and killed 13 people in Maryland, and the scars are visible today. One of the biggest is the Ocean City inlet, which was carved by the storm in 36 hours, connecting the ocean and Sinepuxent Bay. The inlet was made permanent by the Army Corps of Engineers through dredging and the construction of stone jetties on both sides.

BARNEGAT LIGHT, N.J. - So much sand is being scoured by tides at the base of what is probably New Jersey's most famous beacon, Barnegat Lighthouse, that the 170-foot-tall structure is being undermined and potentially threatened. Officials contend that "Old Barney" is probably still a long way from being in danger of toppling into the sea, as its predecessor did in 1856. But the Army Corps of Engineers will spend $1.38 million to fill a 50-foot hole near the base of the lighthouse. The cause of the erosion is uncertain, officials said.

On this date in 1933, a Category 2 hurricane caused devastation and dozens of deaths from the Carolinas to New Jersey. In Maryland, waves and 70-mph winds grounded ships, demolished the Ocean City boardwalk and bridges, and cut the inlet at the southern end of town. Rising water drowned Chesapeake islands and flooded streets and crops. Baltimore lost 2,000 trees, some piers, pleasure boats and bridges. Power and phones were cut off. The 7.62 inches of rain downtown is still the city's 24-hour record.

OCEAN CITY - Two people died in swimming-related accidents Saturday night, including a 21-year-old Virginia man who drowned in the inlet at the southern tip of this beach town. Ocean City police said the man, Kaiser Barrientos of Fairfax, Va., was swimming off the rock jetty in the inlet with two cousins when he dived into the water head-first. He floated to the surface, and his cousins attempted to pull him to the rocks but were hit by a wave and lost sight of him, police spokesman Jay Hancock said.
