Well Pete, glad it was relatively minor and that you and the family are ok. Yes, as much of a pain as it is, it could have been far worse and it has before.

By the pictures I am seeing of the beach, it appears two very obvious things have happened. Yes, the berm in many places, if not all, has been eroded substantially. At least it appears to be. Secondly, the beach is now flat. My guess is and I could be wrong but I bet another beach renourishment/replenishment is gonna be in the works.

Read that the pier is open starting 5 AM (to 11 PM - regular hours) today. The Octagon end is closed. Windjammers is supposed to be open regular hours. Moved the "residents only" checkpoint to Summerwinds to allow general public access to the pier, etc. Don't know if the Marine Park is open?

Here are a couple of pics of Navarre Park (mainland) Wednesday afternoon. Estimate that water is about 4 feet above normal and nearly 100 feet in from normal shoreline.

Thank you so much for bringing these videos to our attention, Marko. It's exactly what so many of us have been saying ... a simple footpath through a berm creates a breach so quickly during a TS or Hurricane event! HEED THE SIGNS - STAY OFF THE BERMS!

Thank you Marko for posting these videos. Great footage. It is bad and it will take some time to fix but could have been worse and Ivan was, exactly 16 years to the very date.
