Gulf County FEMA Berms - St. Joe Beach Segment Constructin Progress Drone Flyover

Hurricane Michael impacted Florida between October 7, 2018 and October 19, 2018, bringing strong winds, storm surge, and flooding. The coast of Gulf County was damaged via storm surge and erosion incurred during Hurricane Michael in October 2018. Gulf County, Florida was designated as a County eligible to receive federal assistance. FEMA awarded a public assistance grant to construct a Dune Restoration project, or FEMA Berm, along a portion of Indian Peninsula, Gulf County Florida. This project is located in Gulf County, Florida along the northern Gulf of Mexico Coast. The Beacon Hill/St. Joe Beach segment, measures 16,100 linear feet, and is located south of US Highway 98, from the Bay/Gulf County Line west of R-1 (29.9247, -85.3887) to R-15 (29.8904, -85.3571).
