Important Coastline Updates to Areas in the Florida Panhandle Post-Hurricane Michael

Hurricanes change coastal and marine landscapes significantly, impacting the chart accuracy of shorelines and bottom contours. Our cartography team has prioritized and completed coastline improvements to the area surrounding Port St. Joe following the category 5 hurricane, Michael, which made landfall on the Florida panhandle on October 10, 2018.

Updates were made on the coastline from Laguna Beach near Panama City on the westernmost coast of Bay County to the west coast of St. Teresa near the Florida State University Coastal and Marine Laboratory.

Boaters affected by hurricane Michael can now benefit from updated coastline data that better reflects the devastating changes made to much of the coastline of and near Port St. Joe.
