A post-storm assessment conducted by the Weather Forecast Office (WFO) in Jacksonville also suggested that inundation could have been as high as 7 ft in several locations along the immediate coastline, particularly near Matanzas Inlet and Marineland. Severe storm surge flooding produced inundation of 6-7 ft above ground level, causing a new inlet to be cut in the barrier island between Marineland and Matanzas Inlet.Radar (Brian McNoldy, Univ. of Miami, Rosenstiel School) | Best models | Matthew timeline | NHC final report
