Teal Called & Asked Me to Let You All Know:

Teal called me tonight to ask that I let you all know they are okay - she said their island is cut off, and they were evacuated by boat. That's all she said - the line went dead.

This NOAA website - Hurricane Ian Imagery shows what the area looks like today. You can enter an address in the search box.

Here's Teal's house, two cars in the driveway. The pool enclosure is gone.






Here's the road into her island from the mainland - lots of devastation visible.

Here's a before picture of the above:

In the news I saw they'd opened a temporary bridge to her island, but I wonder if power and water are working. And wherever she's staying now, hope they are comfortable at least.

So glad she is safe. I don't see how they can live there any longer.

That part of Florida will never be the same, lots of history and lifestyle will be gone.

Is/was she on Sanibel Island?? I heard it is unhabital!

Her home is on Matlacha Island, between Pine Island and the mainland. Looks like causeway damage similar to Sanibel.
