At the eastern Ditch Plains parking lot, another mound of sand at the end of South Otis blocks the beach entrance.

East Hampton Town officials continue to tabulate the damage both storms have caused. Town Budget Officer Len Bernard said damage to town property is going to be at least $500,000. But that figure doesn’t even include damage to roads like Gerard Drive and Star Island Road in Montauk, he said. The town plans to get the figure reimbursed by FEMA, which could take somewhere between six and 18 months.

“Right now the raw numbers as they come are approaching $500,000,” Mr. Bernard said. “I think it’s going to be more.”
