Port Canaveral

Hurricane Irma stormed into Central Florida just a few weeks ago and the tallies for damage caused by the storm to Port Canaveral are starting to come in. It is estimated that the damages are about 2.9 million. This number is actually less than the damages caused by last year’s Hurricane Matthew, which was not as strong as Irma. The damages caused by Hurricane Matthew came in right around 3.2 million.

The 2.9 million in damages is made up of a few different factors:

  • $1.5 million will go towards repairing the eastbound lanes of State Road 528
  • Another portion of the $2.9 million will be dedicated to repairing Terminal 8 at Port Canaveral. Terminal 8 is the terminal that Disney Cruise Line utilizes and had some minor damages prior to the storm hitting. These damages are described as “mostly superficial.”
  • $400,000 of the $2.9 million is from lost revenue due to canceled cruises. Two Disney Cruises and one Royal Caribbean had to cancel their scheduled sailings due to the storm.

Port Canaveral was officially open and fully functional a few days after Irma passed through.
