Can anyone tell us how Grayton is doing with storm surge, at some point following Katrina's landfall tomorrow morning? Earlier today, we were told by someone in Walton County that they expect 30-ft. waves and a storm surge of up to 16 feet, which is hard to believe. Rumors run rampant during such a surreal time and the past year has made us all a little paranoid, I think. Sixteen feet was the storm surge we had with Opal, which was a direct hit. I know this is a much bigger storm, however. Will be interesting to see where this water goes since we lost so much sand to the previous storms. We are holding a good thought for our Gulf front friends and neighbors; the very last thing we needed at this time, unfortunately. Hope everyone stays safe and that our beloved beaches get some of that "net positive effect" that MarineBiologist waxes so eloquently about.
