Florida beach mystery: Debris found on shore after hurricane


Florida archeologists are reportedly expected to examine mysterious debris that appeared along a beach following Hurricane Nicole. 

FOX 35 reported that the experts would visit the Dayton Beach Shores site on Tuesday morning and noted that a spokesperson for the Florida Department of State referred to it as a possible “shipwreck site” – although it is yet to be determined what the objects are.

The station said the debris was discovered a couple of weeks ago and that part of the beach had been washed away following Nicole. 

Nicole made landfall as a Category 1 storm in Florida on Nov. 10, near Vero Beach.

The deadly storm also worsened impacts of Hurricane Ian, which struck in September. 

Severe beach erosion from Ian made homes in Daytona Beach Shores vulnerable to Nicole’s force, with Volusia County officials reporting that homes had been deemed unsafe. 

The debris was discovered a couple of weeks ago after part of the beach was washed away following Hurricane Nicole.
