Dennis Slams Into Florida-Alabama Coast

PENSACOLA, Fla. -- Hurricane Dennis roared onto the Florida Panhandle and Alabama coast Sunday with a 120-mph fury of blinding squalls, crashing waves and flying debris that followed in the ruinous footprints of Ivan just 10 months ago.

The storm crossed land about 3:25 p.m. EDT near the same state-line spot where Ivan arrived, pounding beachfronts already painfully exposed by denuded dunes, flattened neighborhoods and piles of rubble that turned into deadly missiles.

"I'm watching building pieces and signs come off," said Nick Zangari, who rode out the storm in his New York Nick's restaurant and bar in downtown Pensacola. "We were hearing explosions that must have been air conditioning units from other buildings smashing to the ground. ... There were parts of buildings and awnings all around."

    PENSACOLA, Fla. – Residents along the Gulf Coast, where Hurricane Dennis made landfall Sunday packing wind up to 120 mph, returned to their homes Monday to discover missing roofs and walls and belongings strewn about. The heaviest damage was in the Florida communities of Gulf Breeze, Pensacola Beach and Navarre Beach, which were all slammed by Ivan.

    Susan Brooks and Suzette Hester commiserated after they reached the remnants of their homes in Navarre Beach. Brooks lost most of the south wall and about half of the roof from her two-story home. Hester lost most of her roof and much of the wood she had loaded into the house to finish repairing from Ivan.

    “It’s laugh or cry or lose your mind and get institutionalized somewhere,” said Hester, a psychiatric nurse. “And my ward is full.”

  • The Gulf of Mexico rig Thunderhorse after hurricane Dennis…

  • I wonder how they fix something like that?

  • btw – gas/oil will go up *again* …

    I read somewhere that if it continues at this rate, we will be paying over 4 dollars a gallon by this time next year. There will be a revolution before that happens though I fear.

  • I wonder how they fix something like that?

    THose legs are hollow, and they fill them full of water equally to get stability. The sunken legs just have to much water in them. They will flood the remaining legs and even it out, and then pump compressed air into all legs evenly to get the platform back to normal height. Course they gotta fix all the drill heads and bent stuff that got screwed up when the derrik listed. It will take probably a month before it goes back into production. I’m sure they are losing over a million a day. Hopefully it didnt snap the anchor points. I could be that the anchor point on the one side got pushed dragging the derrick down. They will have to move it back in place or cut the cable….wich would be fun to watch that thing snap back into place. If they are permanent anchor points then Plan a will go into effect…unless the flooded leg(s) is/are damaged…then they will have a bad mess on thier hands.

    July 12, 2005 – NOAA today posted online more than 200 aerial images of the USA Gulf Coast regions struck by Hurricane Dennis last Sunday. The Florida Panhandle regions photographed range from Pensacola to Panama City. The aerial photograph missions were conducted by the NOAA Remote Sensing Division the day after Hurricane Dennis made landfall at 3:25 p.m. EDT on Santa Rosa Island between Navarre Beach and Pensacola Beach, Fla., packing winds between 115 mph to 120 mph. NOAA will conduct more aerial flights of the affected regions.
