Chairman of Marco Island: It Was Nothing Like Any of Us Had Ever Experienced
‘It knocked down most of the street signs on the island’

EXCERPT:

HONIG: “Certainly nothing like any of us had ever experienced. A wind event of terrific proportions. It knocked down most of the street signs on the island. It stripped most of the palm trees of their leaves, palm fronds have littered the island. Most of the residents took our advice and took their personal effects inside so we don’t normally find the litter that you might be associated with, let’s say, a tornado. But it’s clear that a tremendous storm came through this area.”
