Favorite Target of Storms Is Damaged Again

Hurricane Dennis took aim at a favorite fishing sport on Panama City Beach.

Some major repairs need to be done before fisherman can enjoy it the way they used to.

The Dan Russell City Pier, the concrete pier on Front Beach Road, suffered significant damage during this past weekend’s storm.

The pier in the past has taken beatings from Hurricanes Eloise, Elena, Opal, Ivan and now Dennis. The federal government has paid for repairs in the past.

Panama City Beach leaders are hoping FEMA will help again with paying for the damage, which was caused by the constant pounding of Dennis’ waves.
