Yep, airport under 4', streets 1 to 2 feet.
It's going down, though.

This morning you could clearly see people knee deep, now it seems to have drained.

CNN reports Marathon under 4' of water. For some reason they are concentrating on Naples and are mostly silent on KW.

Communications must be a problem in the keys cause their reporter is still using a video phone.

A few film snippets did show the reporter on Duval and some people playing in the water in the background.

From the Sloppy Joes website..===>Due to Hurricane Wilma Sloppy Joe's is closed. We will reopen on Tuesday once the storm has cleared. Make sure to join us Thursday for our Annual Toga Party!

Check out this live caaam on Duval after Wilma

Looks like the suns out on Duval St. I hope it will be all set for next month.

Fox news just said that officials expect Key West to flood again with the next two high tides....

And to top it off the FAA's just placed an indefinite TFR on the Key's--(that's a temporary flight restriction)--which means no one can fly to or from Key West. Fantasy Fest is already late. Woe is me--I operate a charter service to the Key's and Have a hundred people scheduled to go to Fantasy Fest. I guess I'm outta business for a while.
