    You just watched it happen in a cat 4 storm.

    Wind damage is really hard to judge from looking at pictures. Strong winds pick up items like roofs and trees which hit other structures and cause more damage and associated debris. The construction of the buildings and what kind of vegetation is there make a big difference. Wind directions and duration are also factors. These estimations are really best left to experts on the ground.

    Mark Sudduth has been around. I remember his video from Charley and I assume he's hit most of them since then.

    Just eyeballing it I'd say this had a much wider area of damaging winds (and also stronger peak winds and much larger surge)

    Main thread is now 100% about Adair anyway.. just leave it.

    I believe those are invasive Australian pines.. Really crappy tree compared to native trees in FL in terms of wind handling. They don't stand a chance in a storm like that.

    I can't really imagine deciding to attempt to ride out the storm surge and wind of a storm like this in a vehicle at sea level. That's not a reasonable plan. People having that little concern for their own personal safety is really disconcerting.

    Noticed a decent round of eyewall lightning on TWC radar product after the entire core of the system was inland. Seems like this this storm would have been even stronger if it had a few more hours over water. Looks like surge was significant in Mexico Beach.. Cap from TWC

    If you want to take a better look. Someone posted the street view of the structure they went in to in the banter thread. Re-posting here. https://www.google.com/maps/@29.919818,-85.3828177,3a,75y,81h,89.71t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1s7R-SaOxb2q8JYA7Wn5Telg!2e0!7i13312!8i6656

    Yep, that's almost certainly it. Street view from that location matches what we saw on the feed.

    Wow, Brett Adair has some balls.

    Conditions going downhill fast at Brett Adair's spot. Should get much much worse too. Concerned for surge at the spot he's at now too.
