    Glades Haven? Any reports? All news videos from Naples talk about lots of flooding but nothing specific. I have a cabin and can't get to it till Tuesday. Trying to prepare for the worst.

    All that I've found about the EC/ Choko area has been on Naples News - the photos posted today about that area are pretty tough to look through after a ten foot surge pretty much trashed everything there....

    On the good news side of things I was able to get through to Port of the Islands today (239) 389-0367... I was advised that they were about 75% operational (of course, I forgot to ask about rooms or restaurant since I was only interested in the boat ramp....). The ramp is open - but they had no info on whether the canal was passable or any info about areas past the canal... Think my first scouting day will be over there since I figure that the Park will be locked down for a long time.... and like every guide - I need somewhere to run with anglers aboard...

    I'll post up when and if I make it across.... If I sound a bit unconcerned about the welfare of folks who are probably in pretty bad shape and only thinking about fishing - remember that the sooner we start spending money there as every small business struggles back to life - the sooner they'll get on their feet...

    Good to hear. I know a guy that lives in that immediate area and was hoping he had similar luck. He posts here occasionally but I imagine he has much more important things to do right now than the internet.

    Same here, obviously concerned about the residents first and foremost. On the bolded point, I'll be arriving down there in 3 weeks for several nights, staying at the resort proper, and hoping to hook a few fish on foot while supporting the local economy.

    For rizangler (and others wanting to get a visual on Everglades City or Chokoloskee) here's the satellite imagery from NOAA.... Looks like Glades Haven had it's cabins moved around a bit.... You can see that both the Island Cafe and the next door Everglades Motel still have their roofs where they belong... but you can't see much of anything about whatever flood damage there is... Here's that NOAA info...

    https://storms.ngs.noaa.gov/storms/Irma/index.html

    As you look at the maps you'll see the 10K and other storm damaged areas shown in black - then just zoom in and move around a bit to find the address/location you're looking for... It even shows Port of the Islands to the west....

    Video that was shared on facebook. Video is of Everglades City and Choko.
    I fixed the link. This one should work.

    How could a surge travel all the way up the to Port of The Islands? I don't think that's possible.

    Over low ground and up the canal. Tides make it up there, no reason a surge couldn't.

    Thank you Bob- as terrible as the damage is I feel better knowing a bit more from this satellite view.
    I spoke with Dan, our Association President, he reported lots of mud thick in cabins he was able to see. Electricity may not be there for a very long time. I was told mine had shifted off its blocks, the NOAA picture does not look as bad as I though from an areal view. At least my cabin is upright. I plan to drive down Wednesday.
