Power just restored, been out 24 hrs. Crab house badly damaged, all floats,piping,wiring gone. Docks badly damaged. Much worse then any previous storm and this is just from a shore view using binoculars. Will launch a boat tomorrow to get a first hand asessment. Bayside communities suffered badly when the wind shifted to the NW and pushed all that baywater across to the Eastern Shore. The crabhouse next to mine collapsed and is gone, nothing left but a few poles. I heard about that on the radio but did not know if they were talking about his or mine so that was an anxious time until I got up with a local who could see the crabhouse and confirmed mine was still there, but nearly under water.

Here at the house a tree fell into a pile of crabpots and destroyed some. Limbs and stuff everywhere. I used the genny for the water pump, frig, and coffee pot. Coleman stove for cooking and fireplace for heat as it is in the 40`s here now. Thanks for all the concern and well wishes, we`ll get through this one as we have others.

So sorry to hear that Lee. The storm really devastated everyone along the shore line. It was bad here, but thankfully we had no significant issues. Hopefully you'll get things back in order quickly, there's a lot of damage from this one.

Thanks for the update, Lee. Sorry for your challenges, but glad all are safe. We had winds up to 51 mph here at the house but no damage, thankfully. Power even stayed on this time - go figure.

Man, I feel for you guys being in central Texas never had to deal with a hurricane, had my share Tornadoes and a lot of hail, but tornadoes have a tendency to jump around I've been lucky to this point have only lost one tree in years past. Good luck to all in her path. Stay safe

We lucked out here at the beach, Just this past Saturday was nothing but wind/rain but no real damage. Had the Jayco tucked beside the house to shield it from the wind. I feel for those up north who were really hit by this storm and all the damage left behind..just sad.

Lee, glad to hear that everyone's ok. Things can be replaced, people can't.

Family is ok, no house or property damage. Still no power, running off generator a few hours a day to make it bearable.

What am I missing. I would expect tens of thousands in shelters. I would expect to see a million Meals Ready to Eat (MRE's) along with bottled water and distribution centers. It's been 4 days and individual preparedness is running out. Bloomberg doesn't have the resources to yet remove all the dead from Staten Island and he's hosting the NY Marathon, WTH? Things are going to get desperately bad quickly. This is going to be worse than Katrina IMHO. We need Lieutenant General Russel L. Honoré and Giuliani like individuals.
"We have hundreds of people in shelters," said James Molinaro, the borough's president. "Many of them, when the shelters close, have nowhere to go because their homes are destroyed.
Shelters close!
