You can't expect to emerge from 12.6 inches of rain in 24 hours unscathed, but the aftermath of the April 29th storm left near devastation in many areas. As the city and surrounding areas continue to dry out, the damages are mounting. Sinkholes such as this one in Indian Bayou are developing as are mildew issues.
The City was quick to issue a state of emergency, and have crews on hand to pump and render aid as they could. The City has also set up a reporting system for people to report damages. The online form can be accessed at cityofdestin.com. Anyone with damage from the flood is encouraged to report so there is an accurate tally of the extent and cost of the damage to assist in monetary relief.
Due to the sheer number of homes affected FEMA has also become involved, touring the Destin area today and tomorrow to determine the extent of the damages.
Because of the growing piles of debris, the City has united with Waste Management to provide curb pickup of flood debris on Friday, May 9th and Saturday, May 10th.
