ST AUGUSTINE BEACH, Fla.-- Hurricane Isaac certainly left its mark last week.
The waves were choppy, the wind was rough, and the sand pumping project in St. Johns County appeared to be in jeopardy.
"I guess you got to worry about the beach being wiped away," said beachgoer Jame Vidrine.
County leaders agree. For decades, the shoreline has eroded farther and farther back. 2.1 million cubic yards of sand was recently brought back in, and so far, Action News has learned it's holding up.
In fact, Issac even helped smooth out the drastic drop-off.
"It's important because it helps fill in the gaps to normalize the beach front," Engineer Andrew Ames said.
Things have also been good for local surfers.
"Since the storms passed, it's cleaned up. It's been good," Sarah Howard said.
Leslie and Michael are the next tropical storms up to bat, but engineers aren't too worried. They say they've taken necessary precautions, and so far, Mother Nature is cooperating.
All crews have left to do now is pick up the equipment off the beach. The weather will determine how long that will take.
