We get a lot of mentions on here about sand either being stripped from beaches or dumped on them, and how this effects detectorists by either bringing targets into range of the detector or burying them too deep.
But many people might not be aware of to what extent this can happen. Here is an extreme version where a whole beach was washed away in 1984 and returned recently.

Lots of other items on line about it with other photographs, some showing the difference more sharply - just search for "Irish beach returns".

It is certainly worth looking after storms as parts of a beach can change dramatically.
One I frequent quite often had part of it stripped down to the hardpack and the finds were good. A couple of days later the same part was back under a good 3ft of sand again.
