RE: Ivan at the Gulf Coast

It’s “Dauphin Island,” and that’s probably just a rumor. Dauphin Island was also “cut in half” back in 1979 by Hurricane Frederic, but was soon “back in business” though never as nice as it had been previously.


I hadn’t heard that about Perdido Key, but it sounds feasible. I know that the beautiful dunes at Gulf Shores were supposedly wiped out by the storm surge.

I have heard rumors that Perido Key (between Pensacola and Gulf Shores) was cut in half by the storm surge and that Dolphin Island will be uninhabitable for a number of years to come, any truth to the rumors.
