Troublesome canal

The slug of wind-blown saltwater ...

Didn't need canals (it was that strong).

From top to bottom, Top: Panorama of the confluence of Turner River Canal (left) and Tamiami Canal (middle) looking east at HPWilliams Park, Middle: the first of five culverts that feed water from the Turner River Canal (middle) to the Turner River, looking north, and Bottom: Halfway Creek looking north at the Tamiami Trail.  Can you see the boulders?  That was an old plug that washed out over time. 

But coastal-connected Halfway Creek Canal helped amplify the event.
