It's gone now

On Monday, I mentioned the wood-frame building that the Alabama Historical Commission had restored at Fort Morgan for use as a restaurant. After a couple of hours of googling, I was surprisingly still unable to determine if that building had survived in the 16 years since I stopped working for the AHC. None of the official AHC web pages mentioned, nor did tourist guides, online yellow pages, or I didn't see it in any photos posted by the many tourists who visit Fort Morgan each year. So I still don't know if that building was still there last week. However, I'm pretty sure that it's not there now:
Overnight giant waves, measured at 53 feet by automated buoys offshore, were rumbling onto the barrier beaches and islands.
Sitting on a sand spit about half a mile wide separating the Gulf from Mobile Bay, right where the eye hit? It's gone.
