INDIAN BEACH, N.C. (WNCT) – Federal Emergency Management and the state of North Carolina announced that $18M will go towards reimbursement of beaches destroyed from Hurricane Florence.

Phase one of the project was the re-planting of 168,000 yards of sea oat taken place on Indian Beach, Slater Path and Emerald Isle early spring.

Phase two will take place in all of Pine Knoll Shores, a small portion of Salter Path, Western Atlantic Beach and Western Emerald Isle between November 13th and April 30th.

“We have nourished the beaches pretty intensely after Hurricane Floyd and all that beach nourishment helped to foster the beach plants and dunes then Florence took that away so our job is to put it back and that is what we’re doing.” Greg Rudolph, Shore Protection Manager
