Hurricane Dorian sends some boats for a wild ride, crash-landing in Brevard

Some Brevard County boat owners didn't get through Hurricane Dorian unscathed.

On Wednesday, a cluster of officers from the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission and other law enforcement agencies were standing near the site of a shipwreck, trying to figure out what to do about it. The boat got loose and got stuck under a causeway bridge on Eau Gaillie, next to the Anchorge Marina.

"It happens every storm," said Elissa Quick.

Quick was picking up the huge clumps of seaweed that Dorian dumped on the banks of the river. Not far from where she was working, two more ships that broke free are now crashed ashore.

Earlier this summer, the county finished its program to remove derelict boats from previous storms, and  now there is a new "fleet" to deal with.
