Proactive coastal stewardship mitigates storm risks.

After Hurricane Sally’s direct hit to Baldwin County, the water-front communities experienced extensive structural damage from the powerful winds. Still, Alabama’s protective dunes were successful at blocking the storm surge from moving further inland for most condominiums and residential properties. This positive outcome is the result of how Alabama has implemented multiple beach renourishment projects since the late ’90s and many residents have stabilized the added sand by investing in their protective dunes. SeaShase Condominiums, located in Orange Beach, Alabama, took the direct hit of two massive hurricanes: Ivan in 2004 and Sally in 2020. While Hurricane Ivan completely eroded the original dune, Hurricane Sally only damaged 10% of their naturally-fortified dune, a system maintained by Dune Doctors. With 90% of their current dune intact, SeaChase attributes their resiliency to the combined efforts of beach renourishment and consistent dune maintenance with Dune Doctors.
