OCEAN SPRINGS, MS (WLOX) - Work has officially begun on a new harbor masters office at the Ocean Springs harbor. A pile driving ceremony was held this morning to mark the event. 

The old harbor master's office was destroyed by Katrina's storm surge five years ago. It will take about a year to construct the 3,000 square foot office complex. 

When finished, the building will include office space, a large meeting room, and storage space.  The harbor master office will be 20 feet above sea level. 

The 830,000 dollar project is being completely paid for with FEMA recovery funds.
