In September 2017, the southeastern United States was struck by two category five hurricanes, Irma and Maria. With winds that reached 175 miles per hour, the storms caused significant damage through coastal flooding, mudslides, and flash floods. Many people in affected areas lost power for weeks, and suffered extreme property damage.
Although the main campus of Sea Base in Islamorada remained largely untouched, this was not the case for properties throughout the Florida Keys and BSA facilities operated by local councils. Camp Sawyer and Big Munson Island were both hit heavily, with camping facilities having been destroyed by the storm.
In response to the storm, the Southern Region will host SeaBreak. SeaBreak will give Arrowmen the opportunity to serve by helping repair parts of Sea Base, Camp Sawyer, and Big Munson Island.
