The storm also caused some beach erosion.

Park officials say the damage wasn't too significant and it's typically what they see during these types of storms.

But, even though the erosion wasn't too bad this time, the park is still trying to recover from the beach erosion they suffered after Hurricane Michael.

"Anytime there is a tropical storm or hurricane such as Hurricane Michael we get impacts from it," Park Manager Scott Robinson said. "It's a natural process and the beaches pretty much heal themselves to a large degree. The sand didn't disappear, it just moved out of where we want it to be. We are recovering from that as each day goes by".

The park is working with the beaches department in Tallahassee, as well as the Army Corps of Engineers to recover from the erosion.
