First there was Tropical Storm Beryl, followed by weeks of strong afternoon thunderstorms.
The steady stream of rain and rough seas has delayed the finish of the renourishment project taking place along the coast in St. Augustine Beach.
"Well we certainly we have made some good progress over the last several months, however, there's no question we have had some weather related setbacks," said St. Augustine Beach Mayor S. Gary Snodgrass.
The project is part of the 50-year plan to rebuild the shoreline shaved away after the St. Augustine inlet was carved in the 1930's.
Heavy equipment had been laying down pipeline and moving sand since March. Some of the bulldozers and front-end loaders became victim to the rough weather.
"We've had some nor'easters and some storms including Beryl in the past couple of months and each time we have a weather related event, it does set the cruise back a few days," Mayor Snodgrass said. "When the storms come you know they bring with them higher waves and it's a greater risk of damage to equipment and that's been reported by my collages in the county who are coordinating this effort."
The completion of the project was scheduled for June. Snodgrass said that timeline has now been moved back to some time in July.
The mayor said the delay should not cause the project to go over budget.
