Yesterday I took this picture which illustrates what the storm surge did. The camera is facing the Gulf of Mexico, which is about 2 blocks straight ahead. As you can see, there is nothing after this house on the right. The road is going downhill, and this house was just high enough to escape the 30 foot storm surge. There were many other houses just like this one down this street toward the gulf, and you can see that they are gone. The reason the trees are sstill standing is that they were actually under water when the winds blew in!
