Dillan Touchtone was hard at work boarding up AJ’s. He says even though Michael developed quickly, they are used to hurricanes and their impacts.

Dillan Touchtone, AJ’s Seafood and Oyster employee ‘We’ve been putting up a lot of wood, boarding up our windows. We’re more worried about water damage than anything else. We always got to prepare for storms being on the Gulf Coast. Nothing really ever surprises us.’
