The photographer: Carol Brock of Penryn Behind the lens: At Rum Point on Grand Cayman, we came across this sign on a recent family visit to the island. The sign shows some history of hurricane activity for the islanders. Hurricane Ivan did some major damage to the island when it hit in 2004.

Hurricane Ike 2008 left one house standing in Gilchrist, TX - nothing else as far as you can see. Used to be solid beachfront !! ( Amazing why ONE only house is completely untouched while ALL the other identical houses succumbed to this violent hurricane !!! )
