  I grew up in Alabama and spent a lot of time in the Ft. Walton/Destin area. Less so near Panama City, but still. To this day I'm spoiled for any other beaches.

Most of the big condo-type structures are built with a 'blow-through' design. The structural walls are heavily-reinforced concrete and perpendicular to the beach. The idea is, in the worst storms the interiors get blasted away, but the structure remains intact. Last time I was in the area I saw a number of houses being built on/near the beach, but all were concrete. Probably code now.

Best wishes to those folks, let's hope not too many try to ride it out. Living on the coast seems to get people complacent: seen one 'cane, seen 'em all. But recent history shows that ain't necessarily so...

I hope someone else is, too. I'm not sure how I feel about them after the NPR/ProPublica report. Has that been answered satisfactorily by anyone other than the Red Cross? Did they really produce such a one-sided report? The ARC seems to think NPR has it in for them.

ShelterBox is a pretty good outfit, I think.

But yes, they're going to need help.
