This footage was taken Right after the eyewall came onshore. Okay it wasn't an eyewall but there was no debris at all untill it made landfall and the surge came up very fast. I would estimate a good 5 FT in about 20 mins . Winds were gusting well over 50 mph at that time and we had sustained winds in the 30mph range before landfall . This storm is one that should be upgraded down the road by the NHC and I hope that this video and some of my others will help with there decision. Problem is there is not much footage from this system but bouy data and weather station data indicate this was no doubt at least tropical depression if not a tropical storm

Any precedent in reviewing it before the season? Hopefully will be some more weeks before we get another storm.

Nice video. I have never been to Dauphin Island and am definately no expert on what storms do to that small parcel of land, however, would seem to me that if everyday summer time storms had that type of effect they would close that road or take some major action. In other words appears to me that a small surge associated with either a strong tropical depression or even a weak TS occurred there. Will be interesting to see and I'm not sure if I have ever seen upgrades prior to season starting.

BTW any chance of the low off east coast of US being tropical? Sure looks to bring plenty of rain to the Carolinas.

I am really shocked to wake up and find out that our system off the east coast is now Invest 91L . It will have a very tough time even reaching std status and could brush the outerbanks before heading out to sea. Not bad 2 invest already and Hurricane Season is still 1 week away from starting .

I picked that up on sat images/loops this AM. Currently very near 30ºN;75ºW and moving @ about 315º. Very small system. SSTs are not very warm until much closer to the coast.
