    Flagler Beach resident Steve Davis isn't sure what to expect with Hurricane Irma, but he knows if it brings as much force as Hurricane Matthew then the damage to the area will be "catastrophic." "If it goes by like Matthew did, 30 miles offshore with 130 mph winds, and it goes by at high tide and with the kind of storm surge that Matthew had, then it will be utterly catastrophic for Flagler County," said Davis of Painters Hill.
