    We got into the eye for about 10 minutes with blue sky and the sun peaking through. I was with some very experienced chasers who have done it a lot longer than me and none of them expected the western eye to be as powerful as it was. It was truly remarkable

    I'd be just as concerned with the callaway area. We saw hundreds of homes flattened to rubble. Not sure how many stood behind there.

    Well said. Josh was in the same hotel as me during Michael. He's strictly hurricane and typhoons

    Would have been a pleasure to meet you Rjay. Shoot me a message next time. We were in callaway just east of Panama City. The hotel we rode out the storm in suffered damage but we didn't feel it was unsafe at any point. Surprising since the rest of callaway was flattened like a pancake.

    I am aware of that. But no one listening to the livestream have been in his shoes at that moment. I'm out of this discussion.

    It's easy to criticse from the sidelines but no body knows what happened before hand or what they were thinking. I for one am grateful they are okay and have no intention of talking negatively about them. To each their own though

    They knew the risk. They just underestimated the surge.

    Oops, I wrote my post wrong again. Still tired. I meant to say that 4 other chasers were in the same location as Bret.

    We were in callaway in the western eye wall. I could not believe how much damage it did. Certainly higher than our expectations

    FYI there were 4 chasers who rode out the storm there and experienced a similar situation as Bret did. One of them lost their vehicle as well.

    Sorry, Panama city. I was tired

    Tons of structures in Palm City Florida were destroyed. CAT2 just doesn't do that damage. Devistation all the way to I10. Here's a video showing the damage as soon as the wind calmed down. Sorry for all the cursing. http://www.twitch.tv/nicholasisabella/v/320948783?sr=a&t=727s
