City Officials Approve Funding for Miami Restoration after Hurricane Irma

May 24, 2018

The Miami City Commission just approved a resolution authorizing the city of Miami to accept $34+ million in grants from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and an additional $9+ million from an insurance payout.

The funds will go towards cleaning up areas such as Watson Island, a neighborhood right next to Biscayne Bay. Even though Hurricane Irma swept through Miami almost a year ago, just behind Jungle Island on Watson Island, there is a large waterfront parking lot full of abandoned, yachts destroyed by the storm. City of Miami officials used the site to consolidate the collection of capsized boats with the intention of eventually destroying and removing them.

According to the City of Miami, police and fire-rescue departments, facilities, and parks are also eligible to receive funds from the reimbursement.
