NEWBURYPORT - A blue-ribbon gathering of local and state officials vowed action February 19th on an increasingly dark problem at Plum Island Point: continued erosion.

Gregg Moore, a coastal scientist at the School of Marine Science and Ocean Engineering, said that 60 to 80 feet of the dune have disappeared in recent months.
