Hurricane Michael News

A recent post from St. Marks and St. Vincent National Wildlife Refuges” “The storm surge dropped piles of debris on Lighthouse Road making it impassable. Our buildings are okay.

The refuge will be closed through the weekend and possibly into next week. The lighthouse lost the steps but no water came in the keepers quarters.”
