Video footage has surfaced of a store front window in Miami, Florida. In the video, it appears the water reaches half way up the door.
Josh Benson of WFLA shared the video on his twitter feed with the following caption:
Store owners in #Miami watch as their store is surrounded by a wall of water. What a terrible and uneasy feeling.

Whoever made this guy's doors and windows ought to get a design award!

Bad situation, but damn, hats off to the builder. That's solid construction.

So, although Miami did not suffer a direct hit from the hurricane, it appears there there will a great deal of clean up to deal with in the near future.
