Re: Tropical Storm Hermine forms in Gulf of Mexico


Mark Sudduth set up a storm surge camera in St. Marks, FL time lapse recording. St. Marks got a large storm surge from Dennis in 2005, and that made landfall closer to Pensacola, approximately got up to where the "3" is in the camera shot.

Been watching this feed on and off today. What is amazing is this 5 miles up the river and Hermine's eye is still 6+ hours away. Granted the water has no place to go except UP the river, but living on the east coast of FL a 5 mile inland surge is hard to imagine.

Location of cam:
30° 9'18.14"N
