Fay takes a toll on pets and Wildlife

Hope everyone and their companion animals are O.K. after this past week's deluge. Unfortunately, the News Journal is reporting that Tropical Storm Fay had a dramatic impact on animals in the sunshine state, pummeling sea turtle nests and separating pets from owners. In Flagler County, 40 of an estimated 200 sea turtle nests were destroyed, with Volusia County faring somewhat better. Officials at Apollo Beach at Cape Canaveral National Seashore found between 300 and 400 barn swallows that had died in the storm.
