that's where we are, outside Warner Robins. Already had the first tornado warning, got everything buttoned up as much as we can. Been here all my life and have never seen an actual Hurrican Warning here before.

I can't imagine what it must be like on the panhandle and between here and there.

I think that's just trees and structure. I think with all of the rain and debris obscuring everything it's giving a false sense of height and scale to that video. There isn't anything I'm aware of in MB that's taller than 3 stories.

EDIT: This is the same area after the worst had past

Last I saw pictures, Bo Lynnís was flooding around noon.

Mom and brother both out of power in Tallahassee. One is close to Tallahassee Nurseries and the other over near Myers Park.

That thing is rocking and rolling! Hope all all of y'all are safe. I'm just outside Charleston, SC, but expect very little by the time it gets here and local news says by tomorrow afternoon, it should be pretty beautiful here.

Iíve lived in the Florida panhandle for nearly 30 years and been coming here all of my life. Mexico Beach is one of my favorite places along the entire coast. A small touristy type village but without all the tourist trappings. Four motels there and lots of homes. El Governor motel is 5 or 6 floors and the tallest building there. No high rise condos, McDonalds, Burger Kings or water parks. Just small rentals, a small Mom and Pop grocery and you better get what you need before 8pm because not much is open after that. Mr. Gís was run by a really cool guy who made the best fish taco Iíve ever had.

I read a report that close to 300 people stayed in Mexico Beach to ride it out. I hope that is one of those vicious rumors that float around at a time like this because if true Iím afraid lots of those people didnít survive it. My wife and I were headed there next weekend for a night or two for our anniversary. Having interacted with many of those folks there, I am literally sick to my stomach and in tears for them. Prayers to all affected by this monster.

My kids lived in Mexico Beach a while, right near that big Nav marker up on the hill. That was what impressed me. Compared to down here in the peninsula, they have hills. Their house was 30-40 feet above the beach and I think I could have hit the sand with a driver. It went up hill from there.If you are on the beach side of 98, you probably don't have a house tonight but up on that hill you just had wind damage. I do worry that most of those older houses are not built to the post Andrew building codes.
I also bet 98 is washed out ... again.

And the older cottages and homes was one of the things that made it such a neat place. Unlike the towns farther west along the coast where the small cottages were torn down to put up high rise condos, Mexico Beach was pretty close to what I remember there 40 years ago. There arenít many of those Old Florida small tourist towns left and it is sad to see it gone. Who knows what the new face of Mexico Beach will look like. But it wonít be the same for dure.

I am afraid you are right. If those houses are 50% damaged, they will not be able to be rebuilt and who knows what will go up on those lots.

Has anyone heard any work on Port St Joe? I've got a friend with a house there and he doesn't know if it is still even there or if/when he can get to it (or what is left of it). He just got it a year ago and the few people he know in the area all evacuated.

Lots of storm surge in Port St. Joe and Apalachicola.

I saw a video on the weather channel from someone's security camera on St George with about 9' of surge and surf coming through. The house where the video was taken is on the North West side of the island. Next to the Bay.
So that leaves me under the impression that the whole island went under.

I just found this one too. Same cam I believe. from Cook Street. You can use google maps to find that. Knowing how many structures and homes that the surf had to travel through to make it to Cook St. is a real eye opener. My guess is all the restaurants are gone. BJ's Harry, A's etc. The gas station at the foot of the bridge.

Thanks, everything I was seeing for a while was from Panama City Beach.

just found this video, it looks like it will at least be flooded as he was a block from the bay. I was hopefully after seeing pictures of houses on the Cape but not so much anymore.

Default Mexico beach

Just saw some aerial shots of Mexico Beach . Around the Boat ramp and inlet on the south side of 98 it appears about 70% of the homes got leveled. What a shame. I used to fish the team Yamaha boat for the MARBA kingfish tournament held out of there and stayed in a friends house right by the inlet. Can't get a hold of them.

Looks like storm surge was all of what they were warned of. Just hope no one got hurt or worse. There having a hard time getting anyone in there.

The little strip of dirt was one of the few places that still looked like old Florida. What a shame.
