Disappearing Island - Ponce Inlet, FL.

July 4, 2010

I was watching this storm approach on radar and knew it was a monster. I tried to get everyone to leave, but they all wanted to stay and party. Thank goodness they did not listen to me, as I was able to snap this 10 image panorama about a minute before it rolled over us.

Boats were slamming into each other from the wind. Thankfully nobody was hurt or killed.

    I'm not sure if "WOW!" even begins to cover it. But . . . "WOW!" R
