With the threat of Hurricane Erika fizzling out it seems only appropriate on this rainy weekend to remember Hurricanes Frances and Jeanne that hit Indian River County, Florida, on September 4 and September 26, 2004 respectively with enough force to sow widespread damage in their wakes.

Sunset as viewed from the truck stop parking lot near Interstate 95 west of Vero Beach, Florida.

The storm breaks up shortly after sunset with lights from the city of Sebastian visible on the far shoreline. Note the little spark of lightning visible in the cloud. Thank you to Bob […]
