4.38 ft is the highest crest ever on that. We may double that.

Last observed value at 3:36pm EDT was at 4.15 ft. Safe to assume that 50 minutes later, it has been broken. Not hard to imagine a very dangerous situation unfolding inland now...

Likely may be the hurricane doing this, but updates from here are very patchy. Is there a better way to see tidal gauges update than the AHPS site I linked to?

Rising at about 2ft an hour right now.

This is what I have been looking for, thank you so much. Easy to confuse or lose resources on a day like this. 

Yeah, so, already set a record level here and no sign of slowdown. I think it is safe to infer for those asking that surge flooding is in progress across Ft. Myers proper as well as much of Cape Coral. This will continue to rise over the next few hours. Bad bad situation.

6.82ft and rising. 
 

that previous posted link of this station lags behind this one for some reason. 

Better still. Thank you. 

Already essentially at major stage. And high tide is two hours away. We may see some of the worst tonight in this area I'm afraid...

From the flooding impacts section -

 

10ft - The Barrier Islands are overtopped with 5 to 10 feet of water. Much of Cape Coral and Harlem Heights under 1 to 5 feet of water. More homes along the Caloosahatchee River, Orange River, and portions of Palm Beach Road are flooded. Portions of Bayshore road north of the Caloosahatchee River under 1 to 3 feet of water.

Entire eye almost completely inland now.  Maybe another 15-30 min.  NW eye wall still looking vicious.  Western and southwestern eye wall still yet to move onshore.  Should do so over the next 30-60 min and Boca Grande to Sanibel could take it on the chin again.  Water still being pushed onshore south of the eye  near Fort Myers.
