Palm Coast kind of reminds me of Port St Lucie, another previously nowhere place that is now one of the largest towns in FL.
We are now a city! Flagler Beach was hit VERY hard. A ton of debris in the ocean which flows into the ICW through the Matanza inlet not to mention the destroyed personal docks along the ICW. Houses along the beach no longer have walkovers or any kind of yard with quite a bit of undermining. A1A is washed out along Flagler Beach and the beaches are closed for an unspecified time. The estimate to fix the roadway is anywhere from 1 - 2 years. Did I mention it is biketober fest this weekend. One thing our first responders don't need. Sad to see all the damage.
