Hurricane Michael & the FLorida Panhandle
« on: October 09, 2018, 01:30:46 pm »

Looking to get pretty bad down there. Got a beach front home rented on St. George Island, a barrier island for Apalachicola, beginning October 26th. They're currently predicting 9 - 12 foot storm surge and the island's highest elevation is 9 feet. Might not be a home there come Thursday. My thoughts are with everyone along that coastline.

Some of you have homes in this area as well, ricepig for one. What are y'all hearing?

We've got friends who rented a condo for the month of October at Hidden Dunes in Destin and they were told they had to be out by 7 am this morning.  Mandatory Evacuation.  Same thing at Sandestin properties but they have  until 11 am to be out.

our friends had to leave this morning after flying in for the week, but they are driving back.  In Mississippi now. Mandatory evacuation, not sure but guess they couldn't fly out.

  Thanks Pharm. We were well to the west of it over here. We got lucky. FWB and Destin area are all good from what I can tell.

Have a cousin that lives in Navarre. They are fine there. I wouldn’t go anywhere from Destin east though.

PCB had some damage on the east end,but Pier Park and all points west came out pretty good.

Panama. City was mostly destroyed. We finally evacuated early Wednesday when Michael kept getting stronger and was not hooking to the east. We were told if we stayed, we needed to write our name ,ss#, and next of kin on our arms in Sharpie. That was the slap in the face we needed.
Both hospitals had major damage. My neighbors house was destroyed, but the aerials on mine looked much better (fingers crossed). We have not been able to return yet. Curfew is 8pm-7am. Info is limited as cell towers were down. It will take years for PC to recover.

Mexico beach is a parking lot as well as Tyndall AFB. 2 fatalities so far, but I am sure there are many more. Prayers needed. They are now saying it probably came in as a cat 5.

My rental agent emailed me yesterday to cancel my upcoming reservation on SGI. The home suffered minimal damage but the boardwalk was completely washed away and there was some damage to the wood panels underneath the house and a bunch of sand. They said that the contractor was backed up into December dealing with higher priority repairs.

I was given a complete refund and that was a relief since I hadn't bought trip insurance. Whew!

I'll try again next year.

Also, saw where the Oyster harvest was going to be severely impacted. Apalachicola Bay produces 90% of Florida's Oysters. Not sure if Florida's oldest seafood festival has been called off or not. It was scheduled for 11/3-4. I was going to give Boar a report.

That's a great deal to get your money back. 

I know they keep close tabs on the oysters.  We were there either last year or year before and they shut it down because of too much rain.  I can only imagine what the storm surge did to them.  I'm sure they'll come back but have no idea how long it would take.

Got a notice today that they're going ahead with this year's Seafood Festival, November 3 & 4. Good luck. I'll try again next year.

Sister and her husband went down to our family place in Rosemary last week and said there was zero damage.  Some businesses weren't open or were shutting down early because most the workers come from PCB and they still have a curfew in effect.  Also said the red tide is still prevalent.

Interesting.  I'd heard that all they needed to curb that was one good storm and Michael was a good one.  Guess they were wrong.
