Escambia Reporting $21 Million In Hurricane Damage To County Assets

September 18, 2020

Escambia County is preliminarily reporting $21 million in damage to county infrastructure assets from Hurricane Sally.

The damages include roads, bridges and buildings owned by the county.

There is still no electricity or water at most county facilities. As a result county offices will be closed to public again on Friday.

    I feel for you Susan and hope someone will help. I had a huge oak tree Ripped out of the ground myself, luckily it does not present danger. I would like to know if a neighbor should feel obligated to cut several of his snapped trees On his side , if they are leaning all over my backyard still hanging by their roots. . they already crushed my fence, so more damage does not matter . I would feel much safer to move about if they were totally on the ground (and without presenting a risk probably cheaper for me to have them cut up ) this neighbor has 6 acres and the backside of his property is heavily wooded – they never go there and don’t care about this strip of their land.
