St. Herman Harbor lost floats and incurred other damage during last week’s windstorm, and the city may consider trying to pay for the repairs using federal disaster relief funding.

The harbor lost seven finger floats, a piling and 14 boat slips during the violent storm-force winds, according to Harbormaster Dave Johnson, in an interview with KDM. The wind pushing against the vessels as well as the waves in the harbor put enough strain on the floats for them to fail. Some of the floats broke off the dock completely, and others had critical internal failures.
