Rhode Island refuges bear impacts from superstorm

Aerial photographs show that areas of the Rhode Island National Wildlife Refuge Complex are overwashed with debris and have vegetation damage. Road fragments cover Sachuest Point Road along the entrance to Sachuest Point National Wildlife Refuge and the Kettle Pond visitor center. The beach at Trustom Pond National Wildlife Refuge was breached, and had not naturally done so in over a decade prior to Hurricane Sandy.
