Hurricane Michael: Long-Term Recovery
The Restore Renew Rebuild Jackson initiative was created in response to Hurricane Michael that devastated Jackson County. However, the scope of the initiative goes far beyond simple rebuilding. Citizens, County and City governments, private businesses and other stakeholders rallied together to use the hurricane as a catalyst to restore the spirit of Jackson County, renew our vision, and rebuild our future together.
Hurricane Michael Projects
Hurricane Michael made landfall on October 10, 2018 as an unprecedented Category 5 Hurricane in the Florida Panhandle region with maximum sustained wind speeds of 140 knots (161 mph) and a minimum pressure 919 mb. The storm caused catastrophic damage to Jackson County leaving several County owned Buildings, Parks, and Equipment in severe disarray. Our efforts since the storm have been ongoing as we strive to either make the necessary repairs or move forward with a complete replacement on some projects. See below for a list of current and completed projects.
