Flood Impacts & Photos Collapse
If you notice any errors in the below information, please contact our Webmaster
13.5 (12 ft Mean Higher High Water) - Flooding of historic proportions in Horseshoe Beach. Elevated structures experience significant flooding and could be destroyed by wave action.
10.5 (9 ft Mean Higher High Water) - Catastrophic flooding in Horseshoe Beach. Complete inundation of the area. Homes not elevated will likely be destroyed. Some structures that are elevated begin to flood and experience damage.
7.5 (6 ft Mean Higher High Water) - Significant flooding in Horseshoe Beach. Structures not elevated suffer flooding with up to 3 feet of water inside.
6.5 (5 ft Mean Higher High Water) - Nearly all of Horseshoe Beach is inundated with structures not elevated flooded with water up to 2 feet deep.
5.5 (4 ft Mean Higher High Water) - County Road 351 floods, making entry into Horseshoe Beach impossible. Most land areas in Horseshoe Beach are flooded. Structures not elevated have up to 1 ft of water inside.
4.5 (3 ft Mean Higher High Water) - Water approaches the top of the bank at Main Street and West 1st Avenue near the city limits of Horseshoe Beach. Structures near canals not elevated are prone to flooding above this level.
4 (2.5 ft Mean Higher High Water) - Water overtops canals and begins to flood in several areas of Horseshoe Beach.
