Here's a lookee loo drive by video of the residence. I really have absolutely no sympathy for these people. I can remember riding my motorcycle down on the road by all the snobby expensive houses when Siesta Key was getting washed away by just the regular waves in 1977/78. The water was just about to undermine the asphalt road with just several palm trees keeping it from doing that. Longboat Key was built (at the time) smarter. I never really cared for Siesta Key, I only went to the public beach a couple of times as the girlfriend liked the sand there, I went in the water just once up to my ankles and I couldn't see my feet due to the pollution, lot of pollution in the Gulf left over from the 60's but I suspect this was local run off as it looked like washing machine soapy water. They say it's cleaned up much since then but with all this red tide over there I doubt it. Lido Beach in Sarasota wasn't much better, we went all the way up to Hernando County to swim in the clean water of the test pits.I have never seen a 12 year old boy 20 ft behind a SUPERBIRD and stand t twice as tall as the car and wing? Plymouth lettering is still flat and straight all though the panel is damaged right on it and top and bottom.
Looks small and placed in a pic.
This is Bonita Beach, the guy videoing this looks familiar (or is it just the Hipster look?) and is boohooing about the value of Florida real estate as that is his line of work. Look at the absent of sea walls compared to a older Daytona Beach.
Sea wall in Daytona Beach that survived.
Some down by the new condo towers that didn't.
Oh lord are we going to hear about this in the coming years, as the section down by the Dunlawton Approach that got damaged by eeeennnn Mathew(?) cost over 1 Million dollars to replace as per some regulation(?) (or just common sense) has to be built at a much higher standard (thicker/deeper/footer).
Crappy Ft Myers pier is gone, never went there and by viewing the live stream cam would never go to the overcrowded pier to see the sunset let alone the overcrowded beach.
Oh and by the way anyone that has been in Florida for more than a vacation that has half a brain knows about our shallow coastline 'shelf' that is ripe for massive hurricane storm surge. They keep lecturing about it, but nobody in the real estate market pays attention. This is way worse in the Gulf of Mexico and a reason why Ft. Myers and the Naples area was not developed for many decades.
See the light blue 'Shelf'? That is not deep ocean and hurricanes will just pile up that water and push it over the land in massive quantities as IAN has taught them.
