We arrived just at Tropical Storm Claudette arrived as well. And our condominium was located on Okaloosa Island (a barrier island) on the first flood right on the beach. I was more worried about flooding than anything else. Fortunately for us, the TS came ashore further east but we still stayed out of the water for a couple of days. (Red flags and rip tides you know but there WERE people actually surfing). It was actually very nice after that.
