FEMA has approved $2,337,738.75 to the State of Florida to help the City of St. Augustine defray the costs to repair the city's marina and docks damaged or destroyed by Hurricane Irma.

“Hurricane Irma was a devastating storm for countless localities including St. Johns County,” U.S. Senator Marco Rubio, R-Florida said in an email to WJCT News. “I am glad to see these funds going to St. Augustine for important post storm repairs.”

Hurricane Irma pummeled St. Augustine and other parts of Florida in September of 2017.
