Hurricane Ian overwashed roads

Detailed Description

Hurricane Ian made landfall in Southwest Florida as a Category 4 hurricane in September 2022 and impacted both the Gulf of Mexico and Atlantic coasts. In Flagler County, Florida, large waves caused by the storm (on top of storm surge and tides) caused damage to coastal structures, dunes to erode, and roads to be overwashed with sand such as this location along highway A1A.

Real-time forecasts of coastal change can be viewed out to 6 days for discrete locations along the U.S. coastline in the Total Water Level and Coastal Change Forecast Viewer.
