ST. AUGUSTINE BEACH, Fla. -- St. Augustine Beach residents are worried about the erosion effects of their beach. Especially since the Army Corps of Engineers just fixed the problem.
Annie Johnson has lived in Saint Augustine for 16 years.
"We have seen this beach reproduce itself, pumping in the sand, three times and everytime this has happened," she said.
She's talking about the erosion. She and her husband keep track of it.
"When we do have a big storm like this, we come out here every day to see how much erosion has occurred since we were here three days ago," husband Russ said.
In those three days, they've seen it erode from the first pillon to the third. But Even if it washes away, the dredging is necessary.
"We're used to the water receeding up there," he said. "You can see the white rail right here by the walkway. Probably in no time it will be up there again. There's jetty rocks up there and we stand up there and get splashed by the water."
When asked how long it would take he said it depends on the Nor'easters and other hurricanes that come through.
