So is that 7 feet above ground level? I wonder what the elevation above sea level is?

Grand Isle itself is 7' above sea level, so i guess 14'.

though right now the sea level is rising quickly.  actually it's pretty hard to see much of anything with all the spray and waves.  the house in the background is still standing but i'm just kind of watching to see if it outlasts the camera.

really can't believe anyone would choose not to evacuate with these conditions coming but i say that every big storm

I'd like to know the make and model of that webcam, and the other equipment and setup. Tough stuff.

yeah i don't think i've ever seen footage like this, this thing is in an EF3 washing machine and it's still transmitting.  i still see the shape of the house in the background.  but for the most part the camera is solidly in the drink.

That beachhouse across the canal has been frittering away for hours now. Just amazing.
