I've seen pics of CENTRAL Florida with water 15' high..."The impacts of this storm are historic and the damage that has been done is historic," DeSantis said. "We've never seen a flood event like this, we've never seen a storm surge of this magnitude."
even Desantis believes it. or maybe its just to help schmooze the money better
I heard Tampa Bay was sucked nearly dry... is that true? Glad you're safe man!
St. Augustine was founded in 1565 and they have been keeping records of storms that hit there ever since. Many other American cities have meteorological records going back to the early 1700s. Some European cities have been collecting reliable weather data since the 1600s. The islands in the Caribbean also have cities that date back to the 1500s and they recorded storms too.We have only been collecting weather data since the mid 1870's. So while this storm is bad, calling it "historical" may be an over-statement. I do hope that those folks can get through this and get the help they will so badly need.
