Water flooded all seven of the city's federally designated historic districts during the October storm, and about half of the 2,000 properties in those areas were damaged, according to experts at the University of Florida. Despite a $6.7 million seawall project that was completed in 2014, homes and businesses along the city's waterfront were overwhelmed.
