Pinellas Beach Erosion Caused by TS Debby Could Cost $20M to Fix

The damage done to Pinellas County's beaches by Tropical Storm Debby could cost as much as $20 million to repair, county officials announced on Wednesday.

Exactly how much sand was washed away remains to be tallied. But the visuals of eroded dunes and waves crashing where beachgoers used to plant their chairs suggest that re-shaping the shoreline will be a costly endeavor.
