OCEAN CITY, Md.-  The winter storm that passed through the region caused damage to the Ocean City Fishing Pier.

Bayshore Marine Construction, which rebuilt the pier following Hurricane Sandy, said strong waves and wind from this latest storm snapped seven pilings from the end of the pier. Most of them washed up on the beach.

The pier is still standing, but there is damage to the pilings at the end of the pier. Coast Guard officials in Ocean City say they had been receiving calls about possible damage since Thursday night.

After Hurricane Sandy partially destroyed the pier in 2012, the pier was reconstructed and reopened back in May. Officials said the new pier is stronger and can withstand high wind speeds It is the only on-ocean fishing pier in the town. Some say it is a landmark.

Bayshore Marine Construction crews were assessing the damage on Friday. Meantime, the pier remains closed.
