Video from Madeira Beach, FL. This video is a little choppy because I couldn't hold the camera perfectly still due to the wind. This is the view of my back yard. We have a lagoon in the back yard, and we are watching the water level go higher and higher. The lagoon has risen so much it's now entering the yard. We've never seen it so high. We are watching it closely and are preparing to evacuate. And, the wind / rain has turned a small boat over on its side. It will probably be completely submerged before the day is over. The rain has been pouring down, sometimes going sideways. The rain has saturated the yard, but not to the point that the water is entering the house or anything. Out front, the roads seem fine, as in not flooded, but definitely a lot of ponding at this point. The wind is coming in strong gusts and driving rain into the windows, which makes a ton of noise, so the pets are freaking a little bit. Although there is not a tornado occurring, we are definitely feeling pressure changes and our ears are popping.
