All Pinellas County parks are open for their regular hours of operation today, since Tropical Storm Debby moved away from Tampa Bay and weakened to a tropical depression.
Only Fort De Soto Park remains partially closed: The fishing piers, dog park and parts of North Beach are off limits until flooding subsides.
Meanwhile, the University of South Florida Geology Department is working with Pinellas County to provide a full analysis of beach erosion.
County officials indicate that several beach areas were hard hit by the storm, extending from south Pass-A-Grille to areas along Indian Rocks Beach and Indian Shores.
“We have a beach nourishment project already in place,” said Pinellas County Coastal Coordinator Andy Squires, “but we’ll need additional permitting and additional funding to be able to extend the beach nourishment project to include additional affected areas.”
