    When you have some time look at this: http://www.ufalumni.ufl.edu/historic...ers/About.html
    The Needhams, Shawn, Rhonda, and daughter Angel, Stewards of Palm Coast Historic Levitt ' The De Soto' Model House have submitted a Nominaton Proposal. It is a request based on the above for a MARKER issued from the University of Florida famous Coastal Engineer Department for a Historic MARKER.
    Their Nomination Proposal was submitted several weeks ago and it is awaiting their Approval or Disapproval.
    Obviously we are all hoping for APPROVED but we have to wait.
    The Needhams have requested an OFF SITE Marker to also be placed here in Palm Coast.
    Now we all sit and *wait*....and *hope*...and more *waiting* and even more *hoping*...
    If it is APPROVED, Honorable Heidi Shipley will prepare the *digging* in Ceremony...
    Now we *wait*...

    Thank you for all advice. Would flooding also be a problem in the Palm Coast area with he canals?

    Yes we should be attentive that there is a storm there that is slowly building and moving westward.
    But not enough to begin any kind of panic, yet they always do it.
    Oh and if you didn't know...We live in Florida, and as well as being able to expect that there will not be any snow this year, we might just have a hurricane or 5-6 to deal with and pay attention to as well!

    Alright you people! Be safe during this oversize car wash that is going to hit us next week! Bring your goodies inside that you don't want blown away. As for me I don't expect any flooding and I expect to enjoy this storm. I don't know why, but I am intrigued by windy, watery, blowing God fearing storms! Stay safe and hunker down and see you when it's over with! Yipeeeeee

    Hurricane in Palm Coast? Not Likely
    Like reports of Mark Twains' death, reports of Florida hurricanes too have been greatly exaggerated.
    Over the years people have become accustomed to thinking of hurricanes as the exclusive property of Florida. One reason might be that the National Hurricane Center is headquartered in Miami. Almost every hurricane news report originates in Miami, regardless of where the storm is located, be it 50 miles or 2,000 miles from Flroida.
    What is a hurricane? it's a large tropical cyclone with winds of at least 74 miles per hour, generally accompanied by heavy rains and high tides. The great spiral clouds of an average hurricane cover an area several hundred miles in diameter, although the area hit by the highest winds- those over 74 miles per hour-may only be 30 to 100 miles in diameter.
    Hurricanes form over warm , tropical ocean areas and move to higher lattitudes like great spinning tops. Their movement is quite erratic. They can suddenly change directions, make loops, slow up or stop-and later move at 10 to 20 miles per hour. This forward speed of the hurricane system increases the fury of the circular winds flowing around the hurricane's eye, or center.
    The north American hurricane season runs from June 1 to November 30, with most storms occuring in August, September and October.
    The North Florida area isn't immune to direct hits by hurricanes-no part of the United States' gulf coast or eastern coastline is. But weather bureau records show that chances of a hurricane striking the Palm Coast region are considerably less than in most other coastal areas of the state and nation. Meteorologist Fred Crosby of the National Weather Service says,"the configuratioin of the coastline and the region's latitude help explain the area's relatively hurricane free record, which is based on the tracks of previous storms."
    "During the early stages of a tropocal storm," says Crosby, 'The movement is generally from the east to the west. The direction gradually changes...this movement pattern would reduce the probabiltiy of one of them directly hitting the northeast Florida coast."
    Looking at the past 100 years, Flagler and Volusia counties hold an envious distinction neither county ever received a direct hit from a full hurricane moving directly in from the ocean.
    Although a total of 19 hurricane's occuring during the 100-year period have posed serious threats and five have actually passed over the area, in each case those storms had already been over land for a number of hours and were greatly weakened in force and without the beach damage caused by ocean storms.
    The last hurricane to afffect Palm Coast was Hurricane David, which brushed the area in early September, 1979. David's highest wind gust recorded in Palm Coast was 59 miles per hour, and though it did drop 4.16 inches of rain over a 48 -hour period, no flood-related water damage occurred. One of the main reasons damage did not occur is because Palm Coast has been designed to withstand, what is termed, "the 100-year flood." That, says Richard Vaughan, director of environmental affairs for ITT Community Development Corporation, means a flood that statistically could occur once in a hundred years could hit Palm Coast and no flood water would enter t

    Palm Coast Project & Famous Dr. Per Bruun:
    ( for the new arrivals - the Palm Coast Project was designed and engineered by Famous Dr. Per Bruun, the University of Norway at Trondheim and the University of Florida Famed Coastal Engineering Department - it was designed that if the Swales Flood Protections system overflows...then the Streets of Palm Coast would be the secondary barrier and the streets would flood...but...no water would enter homes in Palm Coast. There may be some in the lower garage or lower lanais...but the main footprint of the house would be safe. )
    Dr Per Bruun
    Dr Per Bruun, of Hilton Head, South Carolina, USA, is honored
    by CERFJCRas the recipient of the: "2002 International Coastal Engineering Award"
    This distinguished recognition from the Coasts, Oceans, Ports, and Rivers Institute hasbeen granted to Dr Bruun
    "for his pioneering work in coastal engineering, in particular,beaches and tidal inlets, and for his efforts in building academic programs in the field"
    At various times Dr Per Bruun has been employed by the Danish Board of MaritimeWorks, The Technical University of Denmark, and the Norwegian Institute of Technology.He was for many years a Professor and Chairman at the Department of Coastal and OceanEngineering, University of Florida.During his distinguished career, Dr Bruun has worked as an advisor for a great numberof governments and private research agencies, on a diverse range of coastal engineeringproblems involving issues of port, navigation, hydraulic, sediment transport, tidal entrances,coastal protection, dredging bypassing, and beach nourishment. He has published more than150 scientific papers, and several books focusing on the stability of tidal inlets, coastalprotection, and port engineering. Perhaps his best known are
    Stability of Tidal Inlets and
    Port Engineering
    In 1992 Dr Bruun received the Medal of Honor of the Florida Shore and Beach PreservationAssociation and in 1994 he was the recipient of the order: Knight of the IcelandicFalcon. He has also been awarded honorary doctorates from Spain (in 1980) and Iceland (in1994). In 1958 he was elected a Fellow of the American Society of Civil Engineers, and aLife member in 1989.Terry Healy

    Below you will see a MAP. The Federal Government of the United States required that this be shown with distances in nearest tenth of a mile, to show prospective buyers all the Amenities and Features of the Palm Coast Project.
    Therein you can see the BLUE areas showing the flood drainage system put in place by Dr. Per Bruun and the University of Floridas Coastal Engineering Department.
    ( I am Steward of this and two other of these MAPS; I just had them framed so in time you all can see them).

    ( Root - for you - you are near the area known as ' Ribbon Lakes '. They drain to the East, you can see that if you drive down Florida Park Drive, near the ' St. Josephs' Plantation ' Slave Quarters & Out Buildings area, that little bridge, look on the left of the bridge and see how it all drains on the right side of the little bridge ).

    here is the forecast track as of 02:00 hrs 08/28/15
    It is still way to early to plan much of anything. Come Sunday we will have a much better idea of what weather we can really expect.
    If you are new to hurricanes. Now is exactly the time to do many things you should have done back in June.
    Get a plan together. Put your important paper together, especially insurance and banking papers along with telephone numbers to their offices. Not just the local numbers but the home office numbers, because local numbers may not be working.
    You plan should include...Plan A = I'm leaving and Plan B = I'm staying because there are different things you need to do for both.
