Huge parking problems may prevent some wannabe beachgoers from enjoying one Long Island Beach.That's because some of the lots at Robert Moses State Park will be partially closed this weekend.

The reason is because of severe beach erosion caused by a high tide and rough surf last week.

Park officials say the excessive sand loss has left field 5 with only 40 percent of its normal parking capacity and field 4 with 60 percent.

When these two lots fill up, cars will be directed to fields 2 and 3.
