Interesting tropical cyclone photos and videos that I've taken over the years

In 2004, we experienced three tropical cyclones, Charley, Frances, and Jeanne in 6 weeks in central Florida

Here's video from our backyard around 2:00 AM on August 13 during Hurricane Charley

On September 5, we evacuated to a hotel in Orlando during Hurricane Frances

A few weeks later, on September 26, we boarded up our house and rode-out Hurricane Jeanne. We lost power for 5 days.

In 2005, Hurricane Wilma visited

In 2008, Tropical Storm Fay dumped over 25" of rain in east-central Florida

Tropical Storm Fay Suntree, Florida August 19-21, 2008

Measured nearly 15" of rain and recorded wind gusts over 40 mph with my Davis VP2 weather station
The eye of the storm passed directly over my house a 4:00 AM on August 20 as shown by the calm winds

A drain pipe was lifted out of the ground at the Suntree golf course

A car drove into water that was too deep

The retention ponds in our subdivision couldn't handle all the water a overflowed onto the roads

Most of the palm trees were toppled and after the water receded, the fish were left behind near the road

Here's some video I took at my house on the afternoon of August 19
