Even though Broward County did not feel the brunt of the category 4 storm, the outer bands did a number on the popular pier.

The pier was closed ahead of Matthew and it will remain closed until the damage is assessed, said the Deerfield Beach Parks and Recreation Department.

The pier underwent a multi-million dollar renovation back in 2012 after it was significantly damaged by Hurricane Sandy.
