A powerful storm surge caused by Hurricane Idalia hit Florida’s Gulf Coast early Wednesday morning. It was devastating as the storm, which is a Category 3, made landfall.

Floridians were warned by weather forecasters for many days that Idalia was likely to strengthen rapidly in the warm Gulf of Mexico as it approached Florida after passing Cuba. It made landfall near Keaton Beach on Taylor County about 75-miles southeast of Tallahassee at around 7:45am.

A hurricane’s storm surge is one of the more dangerous elements of the storm. It was also a super-moon overnight. High tides are already about a foot high than normal. The storm surge damage videos began to spread on the social networks on Wednesday.

The water rose 10 feet or more at Horseshoe Beach near Dixie County according to a video taken by a digital camera.

A second video shows vehicles driving over the Howard Frankland Bridge which links St. Petersburg, Florida to Tampa Bay. The ocean begins to intrude on the roadway.

A video from Cedar Key shows the surge of storm water rushing in to a condominium. AccuWeather meteorologist Adam Douty, senior forecaster at Newsweek said that Cedar Key experienced a storm surge of around 6.8 feet.

Reed Timmer of X posted: “Storm Idalia causing structural damages and blowing the doors out of condo complexes in Cedar Key FL.”

The roof flew off the Seaside Resort, located on Fort Myers Beach. This video was watched more than 8 000 times up until Wednesday afternoon.

Weather Channel’s video showed Keaton Beach being flooded by waters after the storm.

Spectrum News 13 published a time-lapse of the storm surge in Steinhatchee.

Video taken by Perry residents showed that the storm Idalia winds were equally severe.

National Hurricane Center(NHC), a government agency, warned of storm surges exceeding 12 feet on Florida’s Big Bend. In areas north and South, they could receive as much as 12 foot. Nearly every part of Florida’s Gulf Coast faces some risk of storm surge.

Video taken by Perry residents showed that Hurricane Idalia also had strong winds.

Newsweek’s Douty stated that “the worst may have been done, but we will still be dealing with issues of higher water levels throughout the rest day”.

Many people are unaware of how rapidly the water can rise.

Jonathan Porter told Newsweek earlier that the surge was a threat not many have experienced. The rain, wind and storms we have experienced have given us a good idea how severe they can be. Surge has been seen by fewer people and the rapid rise of water levels. The surge tends “to catch unprepared people by surprise.”

Idalia’s predicted path will include Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina and exit into the Atlantic Ocean. Some models indicate that Idalia will turn around and hit Florida again, while most show it dissipating in the Atlantic Ocean.
