Hurricane Charley On august 13, 2004, Hurricane Charley hit land in Florida around Tampa Bay. With winds blowing 145 miles per hour. After the Hurricane hit, many homes, property, and plant life was damaged. Especially the Florida's national forests. Plants were pulled from the roots,
seeds scattered,
and dry patches begin to show up. It has been a little over 8 years since the hurricane hit and there have been a few more-or-less predictable changes in the community over time indicating ecological succession. If there had not been any remnants of the old community it would be called primary succession but seeing as there was still life in the soil and there was still live plants it is secondary succession which does not take as long to occur. The first species to colonize this area after the hurricane hit is called the pioneer species. They act like the first human pioneers in the wilderness.
