Hurricane Dorian passed offshore of Sapelo Island on Wednesday, Sept. 4. Thankfully, the water did not rise any higher than it does during a spring tide, and the Institute did not flood. The winds at Marsh Landing were over 40 mph for several hours, with a high of 55 mph, but we have not had reports of any damage.
The Institute will re-open for regular business tomorrow.
We count ourselves very lucky!
