SPRUCE CREEK - Typically tropical cyclones pass offshore once they reach the northern portion of the Atlantic coast of Florida. As such, the hurricane risk for the Daytona Beach area is significantly lower than areas of southern Florida like Miami and Key West. The 2004 hurricane season was by far the most active in the local area in the last 50 years. However, since 1950 there has only been one direct hit by a tropical cyclone to the Daytona Beach area, Hurricane Donna in 1960, and now, Matthew which came in substantially weaker than forecast. Here are some photos taken the next day:

HOUSTON, TX 1968 - While testing the Apollo 11 landing module called the LLRV, famed astronaut Neil Armstrong is forced to eject at around 200 ft (60 meters) after a sudden control problem. Footage was taken on the Ellington Airbase in Houston, Texas.
SPRUCE CREEK - The chemical Dihydrogen Monoxide (DHMO) has been found in great concentrations in the lakes of Spruce Creek. Further testing revealed that the chemical is also present in most of the wells at the popular fly-in community considered the World's Largest and Most Famous Residential Airpark.
The U.S. Government and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) do not classify Dihydrogen Monoxide as a toxic or carcinogenic substance (as it does with better known chemicals such as hydrochloric acid and benzene). Both the Obama Administration as well as Republicans in Congress have long ignored taking action against this chemical whose presence in many parts of Florida's top communities is so widespread.
Some of the dangers of DHMO include Death due to accidental inhalation even in small quantities as well as severe tissue damage due to prolonged exposure to solid DHMO. At the macro scale, thermal variations in DHMO are a suspected contributor to the El Nino weather effect. DHMO is often found in biopsies of pre-cancerous tumors and lesions.
Carlos Bravo, a long time resident of the fly-in community indicated he was not worried when questioned about DHMO. He added that "I've lived in this community for 15 years with my family and we have been exposed all this time with no ill side effects at all". Bravo is also one of the largest investors in Spruce Creek properties as well as the CEO of Karlhaus Realty.
