(September 2019) The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has approved $18 million to help Bogue Banks communities with beach nourishment after Hurricane Florence. The communities slated to receive money to replace sand and vegetation include Emerald Isle, Pine Knoll Shores, Indian Beach, and Salter Path.
Officials in Carteret County NC are slated to start a major beach nourishment project in November 2019 which this $18 million can help fund.
FEMA estimates that 830,000 cubic yards of sand and more than 168,000 square yards of plants will need to be replaced on Bogue Banks.
