Key Colony Beach, FL

Key Colony Beach is a city in the Florida Keys, Monroe County, Florida. As of 2004, the population estimated by the U.S. Census Bureau was 852. Most of Key Colony Beach FL is located on an island formerly known as Shelter Key. A small part of the city is on Fat Deer Key where the Sadowski Causeway, which is the only road entering the city, connects to U.S. 1 (the Overseas Highway). According to the United States Census Bureau, Key Colony Beach, Florida, has a total area of 0.7 square miles (1.8 km2) in which 23.88% is water. Prior to the early 1950s, Shelter Key was a 97-acre (390,000 m2) low-lying island. Then, Phil Sadowski began dredging around the island, adding to its size and increasing its height to six feet above mean sea level, and later built developments on the island. Around 1956, residents of nearby Marathon FL began discussing incorporating the entire area. Sadowski was not keen to having his development swallowed up into Marathon, so he began the process of incorporating the island into its own city. The Florida State Legislature passed legislation in June 1957 allowing incorporation, which local residents passed unanimously in September, thus creating today’s Key Colony Beach. Incorporation would become a blessing in 1960, when much of the city was destroyed by Hurricane Donna. As a separately incorporated city, Key Colony Beach received its own federal grant to rebuild. Nearby Marathon (not yet incorporated) had to settle for a portion of the grant given to Monroe County. However, Hurricane Donna (and the takeover of Cuba by Fidel Castro) caused a depression of real estate prices, which would take several years to stabilize. Mrathon FL is to the west. Islamorada FL is to the northeast.

Hurricane Donna

Hurricane Donna 1960Hurricane Donna in the 1960 Atlantic hurricane season was a Cape Verde-type hurricane which moved across the Leeward Islands, Puerto Rico, Hispañola, Cuba, the Bahamas, and every state on the East Coast of the United States. Hurricane Donna holds the record for retaining major hurricane status (Category 3 or greater on the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Scale) in the Atlantic Basin for the longest period of time. For nine days, September 2 to September 11, Hurricane Donna consistently had maximum sustained winds of at least 115 mph (185 km/h). From the time it became a tropical depression to when it dissipated after becoming an extratropical storm, Donna roamed the Atlantic from August 29 to September 14, a total of 17 days. While crossing the Atlantic, Hurricane Donna briefly achieved Category 5 strength. The precursor to this storm was a well-organized tropical disturbance which moved off the shore of Africa on August 28 and 29. The crash of an airliner at Dakar on August 29 was attributed to this disturbance. By August 30, the system became Tropical Storm Donna. Moving westward, intensification continued, bringing the storm to hurricane strength on September 1. The storm made its first Florida landfall in the community of Marathon FL, centered on Key Vaca in the Florida Keys. The storm crossed into the Gulf of Mexico and its course shifted northward. Hurricane Donna paralleled the southwest coast of Florida until it made a second Florida landfall between Naples and Fort Myers, again as a Category 4 hurricane. After crossing the Florida peninsula, it continued north and moved back out into the Atlantic Ocean near Daytona Beach. Donna made another landfall at Topsail Beach, North Carolina as a Category 2 hurricane. The storm continued up the Eastern Seaboard, and remained off the Mid-Atlantic Coast. Donna made a final landfall across eastern Long Island as a strong Category 1. Donna, unlike Hurricane Charley which followed a similar track in 2004, was a slow-moving storm. Donna dumped 10 in (250 mm) to 12 in (300 mm) of rain in the southern half of Florida, along with about seven inches in the northern half. The three weeks prior to Donna’s landfall produced a 6 in (150 mm) to 7 in (180 mm) surplus in rain before the hurricane hit, exacerbating the problem. The day after the storm hit, President Dwight D. Eisenhower declared a disaster area from the Florida Keys up to Central Florida.
