In 1998, the lighthouse was toppled by Hurricane Georges. In 2005, reconstruction of the lighthouse was in progress, but the structure was destroyed by Hurricane Katrina.

The foundation survived for a while, but Katrina and other Hurricanes made restoration difficult.

Recent efforts abandoned on-sight restoration, instead, rebuilding the lighthouse inland as a historic structure using materials from the original island structure. This new ARLHS museum is USA-711M
