not necessarily true. Most experienced metal detectorists wait for this type of event to happen. Especially in areas like Matagorda beach where there is a lot of history. Hurricanes wash away years and years of built up sand, and seasoned metal detectorist take advantage of it. It's almost like going back in time to them. They are able to dig up things, like old silver coins etc, that otherwise would have been too deep and undetectable.Shooter said:All your going to find for the next few years are nails, hurricane nail plates and straps.
