Iron Ore Bay, South End road curve was recently closed due to heavy erosion. Winds and water have washed away Betsy Point completely, allowing the southern currents to meet eastern tides. X waves mark the spot and have taken away shoreline to give back sand that floods into the Iron Ore Creek drain and change the shoreline and the view.
