Today's discussion is the impact storms have on Long Island inlets, and in particular, the new Old Inlet (which I am instructed is NOT an inlet, it is a BREACH).

My guests are Carl LoBue from The Nature Conservancy, and Marshall Brown from SaveTheGreatSouthBay.com and on Facebook. Send your questions to habanero@wusb.fm, or call the studio between 6-8 am (631.632.6901).
