Photographer's Note

I took this image exactly 7 months after Hurricane Michael slammed into the Florida coast near Panama city. It actually hit an area called Mexico Beach. I am on interstate 10 about 70 miles north of the actual landfall. As you can see the trees were snapped like twigs. I will post the damaged caused by fallen trees in the workshop. Still very much a mess here with progress being very slow due to the rural nature of this part of Florida. The interstate was passable with just a slideshow view of the power of these devastating storms. These damaged trees here could be the work of Tornados which spin off from these giant storms. I have been through five in my lifetime between Florida and Japan. Never are they very pleasant. But hey.....at least you get plenty of warning. Not like earthquakes, wildfires, flash floods, or tornados from thunderstorms. I guess it is the trade off to living near the beach.
