Coastal recovery operations underway following Hurricane Matthew
U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Jacksonville District employees are supporting coastal assessment and recovery work throughout Florida in the wake of Hurricane Matthew.
Immediately after the storm passed, Jacksonville District emergency survey crews and coastal engineers worked in close coordination with the U.S. Coast Guard and local port authorities to quickly assessed eight ports on the east coast of Florida. All Florida federal harbors and ports are now open.
