Tropical Storm Claudette

One nest was washed away and several others flooded by surf from the tropical storm last weekend. Sea turtle eggs can tolerate some flooding, so we hope that hatchlings will emerge from the flooded nests. Loggerhead nests require about two months to incubate, and the first nests should begin hatching in early August. Please call the Beach Police at 850-233-5000 if you see nesting sea turtles on Panama City Beach.
