SC -- Apalachee Bay is very susceptible to storm surge, and Dennis passed close enough to the region to continually send waves into the bay from the coast of Cuba all the way until the time it passed north of Apalachicola. Coming in at high tide and being shaped like a cup to focus all of the wave energy did not help at all. The areas around St. Marks saw storm surge consistant with a direct hit from a category 3 hurricane; areas inland and to the east and west weren't that bad, but many portions of the roads there, near Alligator Point and Shell Point, and then all the way to Apalachicola are busted up and many buildings have sustained pretty substantial damage. Other than near the landfall point, this area probably saw the worst from Dennis (pending flooding concerns near Atlanta over the next few days).
