REHOBOTH BEACH, Del. (AP) - Natural Resources officials are wasting no time in cleaning up and reinforcing Rehoboth Beach after last month’s snowstorm.

A worker was operating a dozer through the sand less than two weeks of the snowstorm hit, pushing sand the edge of the dry beach to the dunes, over a layer of water.

This process reinforces the dunes, Tony Pratt of the Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control tells WBOC-TV (https://bit.ly/1QFHpD2 ).

Pratt says nature does most of the work, but the dozers can speed things up a bit.

Pratt says it remains unclear how much permanent sand loss there was.
