Gulf Shores Alabama

Hurricane Ivan Before & After Photos

From our Coastal & Marine Geology Program

Check out the new pass between Little Lagoon and the Gulf of Mexico.

This new pass is on federal wildlife property immediately adjacent to the gated community of Laguna Key at the end of West beach Blvd. in Gulf Shores, Alabama. Some think this breach was formed when water rushed back out of the inland areas towards the gulf. It is much wider than the existing 'managed' pass closer to Hwy 59 on West Beach Blvd. It is really beautiful, close-up photos are on our HOME page.

Right to left are a hotel, the Winfield Resort, and Sugar Beach Condos.
Sugar Beach had a red roof when the first photo was taken.

The hotel has roof damage but nothing is as bad as the collapsed Winfield Resort--this photo clearly shows why it is not a good idea to remain behind when an hurricane is headed our way. The lower floors are now buried under the upper floors. You can see that everyone's pools are gone.

Crystal Beach Condo Collapse & Missing Beach Houses---
This newly built condo building is near the junction of the Beach Hwy and Hwy 161 that connects to Canal Road in Orange Beach, AL.

This stretch of Orange Beach with so many destroyed homes is across the street from the Waffle House and the former location of the round building that once housed The Buccaneer Restaurant and later The Pass Restaurant. It had been torn down before Ivan hit.

The last comparison photo is of Pensacola Beach
