FORT MYERS BEACH, Fla. – A condominium building on Fort Myers Beach is 'one storm away,' from devastation, and that storm might be on the way. The Leonardo Arms Condominium Building #2 now sits just 15 feet from the water of the Gulf of Mexico. Years of beach erosion has brought the water right up to the foundation of the building. 'We've been under the threat of one good storm for about a year now,' said Gene Duffy, President of Leonardo Arms Condominium Association. He's spent the past year waiting and wishing a storm wouldn't find Fort Myers Beach in its crosshairs.
