I saw on the weather channel that Dennis had washed away much of Destin's beach. It basically dragged away 5.5 feet worth of sand (in height). I admit a few tears fell when I saw the footage.
I left Kellie and Allen (my friends who live there) a message on Kellie's cell on Saturday, but haven't heard back from them. I am guessing they evacuated to Atlanta and hope that Dennis left their home unscathed.
