St George Island State Campground damaged by Hurricane Michael by Barbara Edwards

If your one of my followers, you know my husband and I winter on St George Island, Florida.  We volunteer at the State Campground doing general maintenance, picking up trash, painting and other tasks. Thsi year Michael hit the island with a 12 foot storm surge. The residential area is built on pilings. The damage is great.

This is the main gate entrance.

The road that extends 10 miles through the park is gone along with the dunes.

The way is impassable except for four wheel drive vehicles.

Thank God, the rangers who live on-sight evacuated and their homes which are on pillars remain. None of them were hurt.

I know many people have  worst damage. And I send them my prayers and sympathy.  But I will  miss seeing everyone this winter.
