EAST HAVEN, CT-09 January 2013-010913BF05-- A loss of approximately 8-10 feet of beach at Cosey Beach in East Haven are the effects of Tropical Storm Irene and Hurricane Sandy. Tropical Storm Irene in 2011 and Hurricane Sandy in 2012 caused major damage to the area. The two storms have brought about more talk about environmental issues including sea level rise, which coupled with global warming, has some experts saying it contributes to higher devastation during storms.
