If you doubt the power of hurricanes, take a look at this panoramic view of Upper Captiva Island off of southwest Florida’s coast, before and after Charley made landfall there. The trees that are pushed into Pine Island Sound, by the way, will make excellent snook habitat for years to come. (Thanks to reader Jim Langley for this link.)
