The tribe says the seawall was breached Tuesday by pounding waves in high winds. The water has destroyed a smokehouse and several outbuildings.
Quinault tribal president Fawn Sharp issued a voluntary evacuation order and asked for federal help.
The corps has outlined a plan to complete the repair before a new storm that's forecast for Saturday.
In January, the corps placed 800 tons of rock along the seawall.
Taholah is in Grays Harbor County about 30 miles north of Ocean Shores.
