How did you fare, Mountain? Roof hold up okay? You said that movement east was good for you, and it looks - to me at least - like it did stutter-step that way a bit right around landfall.

There are a lot of downed trees everywhere. A lot of road closures and people without power inn Tallahassee this morning.

Probably a 90+% chance you'd be out of power if not for those underground utilities. Glad to hear you fared well.

Tyndall and Mexico Beach really look horrible.

Footage on Facebook through WxChasing site. Their website crashed due to traffic.


Really big devastation, many homes are gone (not destroyed, GONE).

I can't even begin to comprehend the magnitude of this destruction. That Mexico Beach video brought tears to my eyes.

You're right! It's really horrible. One of daughter's friends families had a house there. We have picture of their site from last night, but are not sharing it.

They are deciding through insurance if they should / can / have to build back.

Man...that has got to be so tough. I'm not sure I'd want to build back there after that. The odds of that area being hit again have to be off the charts high. But still...

What's really odd in talking with him today is based on how it was bought and used, they may "have to". Odd second home rules and what insurance pays based on what is done.

Do you take the $200K and walk, or the $500K and build back? (numbers are not real, but multipliers and point is)

That's what my sister thought when Irene hit and she had a foot of water in her place. Almost a year to the day Sandy came through and put over 5' of water inside. Can't call them hundred year storms anymore when they're coming every year.

Lol, I wish. I haven't really seen much about Port St Joe after the storm. There was a storm chaser there, Brett Adair, that tried to hold up there during it. He reported that there was catastrophic damage. In fact, he had to abandon his vehicle due to the rising danger.



I did find you a video of some of the damage from that area that someone took with a drone. It looks like the majority of the surrounding area is completely flooded while the town itself suffered significant damage. Rick Scott mentioned that it looked like a bomb went off.

I really like the use of drones for this type of assessment.

Pay attention to the water level around 2:25 ..and think ... this is likely this morning .. amazing the water that is still hanging around

If I am correct, high tide was last night around 2 AM

Prayers go out to everyone impacted by this storm. (via @severestudios/@johnhumphress) Mexico Beach

I hate to use that analogy, but I thought the same thing. When you see stuff like this:

Houses are straight up gone. Not damaged, not destroyed, gone.

Tornados will do that.

Those pictures reminded me of Homestead after Andrew. It was like someone dropped the bomb.

That's what those pictures look like. A tornado spun off in the middle of the hurricane. So the tornado goes through and wipes out those houses (leaving the ones up top relatively okay), and then the remainder of the hurricane is still there to do the broom/dustpan effect and sweep away all of the debris.

WHEW!

The Tudor's Biscuit World on West 23rd street in Panama City is still there.

Tyndall AFB is all tore up. ALL of the aircraft overhangs on the apron are gone and if you scroll to the main gate you can see the flipped over F-15 they showed on the news.

Obviously the panhandle got the brunt .. but to put this into perspective, this is Halifax Co Virginia.

Same storm

Halifax is southern Virginia near Danville, and maybe 1 hour south of Lynchburg (where Buc2 lives).

It was a static display, not a real F15, but still it's a mess. My reserve unit is down there helping.

Looking at the video, there appeared to be a number of aircraft in some of the damaged hangers, including some F-22's. I'd be very surprised if they didn't sustain at least some damage.

I know. There's a building to the west behind the Tyndall school that had 3 static display aircraft out front.

Didn't know you were still in the reserves. You're a good man, Charlie Brown.
