They have done a nice job with this memorial. Worth stopping for a few minutes to take a picture and read the information.

Watching the traffic go by on Highway 1 next to this monument, try to imagine the Keys of 1935 on a Labor Day holiday weekend. Then imagine the power of 150-mile-an hour winds and the devestation that occurred...lives lost...the famous Flagler railroad demolished beyond rebuilding. Pictures show landscapes that look like Japan after the tsunami...or Joplin, Missouri after the tornado. This simple, elegant monument honors those who were lost. Looking at the Keys today proves the strength of the human spirit.

The key is about four miles long and a quarter mile wide. It isn't hard to see how devastating a hurricane could be to the population, especially in 1935.
