Scientists have said the catastrophic storm was made worse by rising global temperatures.

Debris from fallen trees and washed-up trash from the river still litter the ground months after the Category 3 storm brushed the First Coast. Broken boards from the dock are scattered like leaves. A gate blocks off the dock and bears a large warning sign: “Keep off dock under repair,” in big red letters.

The remaining few yards behind the fence are dangerous and cannot be used.

Walter Jones Historical Park in Mandarin was home to the County Dock, but sustained extensive damage from the hurricane last October.
