Strong winds can be heard roaring in the video as rain comes down at amazing speeds. The waters around The Blue Barnacle, DiBenedetto's camp at Port Fourchon surged high around a camera set up capturing it all.

Earlier images show the relative calm of the camp before Ida made landfall.

"We're not sure if she's still standing, but the dock is still there," he said in a post.
