CLEVELAND (AP) — Damage from last year's Superstorm Sandy has shut down a popular Cleveland marina for the boating season while the state works on repairs.

The Ohio Department of Natural Resources says demolition of the Edgewater Marina began soon after Sandy hit in October but was stopped by winter weather.

The Plain Dealer reports Friday (http://bit.ly/12SKRAG ) that the Natural Resources Department notified concessionaire FDL Marine Inc. last month that the marina wouldn't be rebuilt this season.

The storm sank or damaged dozens of boats at the marina and docks were dragged to the marina's bottom.

The federal government will pay for about 75 percent of the rebuilding after President Barack Obama declared a major disaster in Ohio following the storm.
