Hurricane Dora hit downtown Jacksonville, Florida in 1964 before turning to South Georgia. Florida’s Governor Bryant in the boat above surveyed the damage in downtown Jacksonville. The Ferris Wheel at the Jacksonville Beach boardwalk folded like a paper fan under Dora’s powerful winds. The devastation that Dora left in her pathway forever changed the face of Jacksonville Beach wiping out our boardwalk, leaving major damage to homes and businesses all over Jacksonville and leaving residents without power for over a week.
