RE: Ivan at the Gulf Coast

Supposedly the Perdido Key bridge is out.  The B'ham TV stations were showing some footage of some pretty big washouts, but haven't heard about the whole thing being cut.  Info is still pretty sketchy though.

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.
