Pictures: Irene's wrath in Ocean City
After a night of torrential rain and winds reaching gusts of 80 miles per hour, only minor damage was apparent throughout the town. City engineers said the beach suffered little as the storm whipped the coast. The sea swallowed up some of the beachs tan sand, leaving behind patches of black grit. Small hills of sand were also deposited on the boardwalk.
