I lived at 'Ormond by the Sea' at Ormond Beach that is just down the beach at Daytona beach....for a
year. I lived less than a block off A1A across from the beach and that is just a few miles down from
Flagler beach. At the time I lived there, there was a time when a few were boarding up their windows
due to a storm BUT most felt nothing would happen seriously. Well, nothing serious did happen but I
tell you this.....that was a simple mild storm.....and I had a large picture window in my living room and
could see across to the beach and ocean. It was very frightening. The waves came up to the highway
on A1A and I could see those waves rising and coming in from the ocean. Most of that storm took place
at night. The next day, many of us were leaving our houses and the condo's there and walking across
to the beach but the beach was mostly gone. It was a few days before the water went down enough
to actually walk on the beach again. The storm had spit all kinds of junk out from the ocean....mostly
what I called sea weed.
I considered getting the heck out of there at that time.....and I think it was a category 0.
