100 Year Old Shipwreck Caught from the Sky

According to an article in the Tallahassee Democrat Sunday, Hurricane Michael’s waters dredged up shipwrecks on Dog Island in Franklin County that are believed to be vessels wrecked during the 1899 Carrabelle hurricane. That Category 2 storm swept through the Florida Keys wiping out dozens of ships along with extensive land damage. And now a century later Michael has uncovered at least two of the large wooden ships as seen in this aerial image captured by Vexcel’s Condor camera 2 days after the storm.
