State Approves $100 Million for Costal Restoration - $37.6 Million Goes To Volusia Co.

"I tell you, this erosion was worse than they had in Southwest Florida. They had serious problems there, don't get me wrong, but this has been that one-two punch I think with the two storms."  

In a December special session, the Legislature approved that $100 million for projects on Florida beaches in 16 counties. Of that, DeSantis said $37.6 million will go to Volusia County beaches.

DeSantis noted that dozens of beachside structures were deemed unsafe. In November, he visited Wilbur-by-the-Sea just to the south, where 25 homes were destroyed by pounding waves and eroding sand during Nicole.
