  • Taylor Rizer says:

    If your still in the area, have a bud with two boats tied up between the sea center and the first house behind it on cahill. Hes kinda anxious, just wondering if you could check it out

  • Kort Kramer says:

    We feel so bad for the Keys.

  • Peter Oman says:


  • Lee Curt says:

    Noticed the Mainstream Media played the damage down. They do this so they can justify the Evil they bring to the public so no one will respect, and give Glory to God.

  • Fiona jordan says:


  • Xperia Zip says:

    Why would people leave their vehicles rather than pack them full of belongs and drive them off the islands? People knew this storm was coming days in advance. Insurance shouldn't pay them a dime.

  • joan hall says:

    Absolutely devastating.

  • Manuel Haro says:

    this is all cgi

  • Lindsay Shostal says:

    The reason question: why are people trying to go through this, when they've been warning? You were warmed, and told how to prepare, but still, you venture out into out ….WHY>?????

  • jim priour says:

    Best video I've seen! The news and weather channels are really a joke these days. They stand in one spot in water and wind and talk. I love the keys and the people. God Bless from Texas and we pray that everyone is safe and you recover quickly!

    Lots of work to be done

  • blastman8888 says:

  • elizabeth hollins says:

    Is there not a way to better attach homes to their foundations?

  • TheCarnivalguy says:

    Thank you for this video. I used to live in Marathon, and it's heart breaking to see this devastation. I hope that those who decided to stay are okay.

  • Gerry minbar07 says:

    Humans emit 60 times more co2 and sulfur than volcanoes every year. Yes of course when a volcano erupts big, it contributes the same if not more. But how often do we see these big eruptions?

    Earth is a living bio-dome with a delicately balanced atmosphere. Any insult to it brings forth a correction, and the bigger and prolonged the insult, the bigger and prolonged the correction.

    What I find disturbing is how small minded and ignorant of the cosmos people are. In this solar system, we are the only habitable planet yet we crap on it everyday. Even with the new planets we discover everyday that have a Goldilocks zone, we are finding it does not easily translate to earth. Instead Goldilocks may mean an ice cold rock with Oxygen, or one where winds and storms are over 500miles an hour, or a stuck in place planet where one side has sunlight for half the year, while the other has darkness.

    yet here we are doing to our only home in the known cosmos is akin to someone crapping lead, mercury and acid laced feces in his home everyday without flushing, yet expecting all will always be good. I know my example is a little stretch, hope you get the point.

  • Coral Conner says:

    Please please post video of Ramrod Key. You jump from Simmerland to Big Pine Key. We heard Ramrod wad under water but eve video of that would show us something. So far every video skips Ramrod.

  • ambo100 says:

    If only there was a way to move all of these motorhomes away to safety before the Hurricane hit.

  • Mike Brown says:

    Better film footage than I saw after two whole days of watching the TV network stations. Who needs ABC, CNN ETC when you have youtube!

  • dee bee says:

    Both Texas and Florida got hit by deadly hurricanes….Both Trump States…Coincidence? Not really. God is punishing those stupid Trumptard States. Enjoy your President assholes.

  • Janet Faber says:

  • roblox84 says:

  • Linda Davis says:
