Although we are some 250 miles from the storm, feeder bands come and go with hurricane intensity such as this one, filmed from our porch. The water level is abnormally high almost covering the dock. The large boat across our waterway was leaning to the starboard in the northerly wind. Our Pursuit had been tied to our lift. One can imagine the impact of a direct hit, winds of this magnitude for a sustained period. Of course seven years ago we had Hurricane Wilma which, although it approached from the west, actually strengthened as it passed over our home as a Cat 2.
