The breach in the Fire Island wilderness area has grown dramatically since superstorm Sandy, federal records show, potentially opening up some South Shore communities to flooding.
The area facing Great South Bay has more than doubled in width and the portion facing the Atlantic Ocean has grown by more than 10 times since the Oct. 29 storm cut through the barrier island.
