The Everyday Aftermath of Tropical Storm Debby

Tropical Storm Debby continues to track across Florida, having made landfall in Steinhatchee, Florida, on Tuesday afternoon. We watched Debby make headway on Sunday and Monday, with fierce winds too strong to go out and walk the dog and water, water, water beyond what you can imagine.

In Florida Culture’s town of Bradenton, close to Bradenton Beach and Anna Maria, we decided to take a drive to see how the storm had affected everyday areas. Take a look at this photo gallery for a neighborhood view.

By the way, if you like finding shells or shark teeth (the latter of which is the most widely-read topic on this blog), this post-storm period is a good time to do so. However, make sure you visit a wider beach where you can actually look for shells. Some of the more narrow beaches we saw today had water completely covering the usual area with sand and shells. There were rocks and other barriers holding back the surf, a reminder of how dangerous a coastal area can be during a hurricane.

  1. Looks like we don’t have to walk so far to the “water” at Coquina Beach.
    Glad no one was in the Johnny On the Spot!
    Looks like the dog loved the wind! Very cute!
