Fort Myers Beach, Florida
This iReport is part of an assignment:
Isaac soaks the Gulf coast
High Surf at Fort Myers Beach
The combination of high astronomical tides, near a full moon, and storm surge, caused the Gulf to cover the beaches and sent Back Bay waters over seawalls around the island.
Islanders were under a mandatory evacuation issued Sunday morning, that was rescinded Sunday evening. Many locals and visitors never left, trusting that the storm was moving away from the Southwest Florida coast.
