Really bad storm - the front side of the storm is at low tide and actually holding back the storm surge a bit....but that will change quickly as the eye passes and the reversed winds will push the water on shore.
I hope any WF members in the Ft Myers/Tampa/anywhere-else-in- Florida areas are either evacuated or in a safe place!
To be 'stars' of social media, some people do dumb things to show off....three young men were 'braving' the storm surge by jumping into the waves and then fighting to gain footing before the waves sucked them out. The comment just below the video said "It is amazing we are not extinct". Yup, true that.
