Quote: The population is much less, but the surge potential is much, much higher. Cedar Key was devestated by an extratropical cyclone in the mid-80s, while the whole coastline was ravaged by Dennis this year despite the storm making landfall 150-200 miles further west. It likely won't be a major -- probably high end 1 -- but that's still going to do a lot of damage, particularly given that this is a heavily wooded area without a very strong infrastructure (the power grid in Tallahassee, for instance, is unreliable during strong weather at best). Less population & monetary damage, but the overall impact to the coastline will be far greater, based off of experience.
Clark any inkling on what we might be in store for here in Tally??
