Clearwater Beach, Florida was around 150 miles away from the eye of Hurricane Idalia that made landfall on August 30, 2023 as a Category 3 storm near Keaton Beach, but the Tampa Bay area and surrounding barrier islands still experienced storm surge. This are only experienced 4-6 ft storm surge and the beaches and businesses are already back open on Clearwater Beach. This footage was taken around 10 am on Friday September 1, 2023. This video includes footage walking around Clearwater Beach and Pier 60 2 days after the hurricane. A portion of the pier is now closed to the public while it's safety is being evaluated from damage that was sustained. There is also a public health advisory due to high bacteria levels in the water.
