Title says it all
The eye went right over my head Saturday night. 12 nightly hours of intense winds. I wrote a lenghty report in French on another forum and on Facebook. Don't feel like re writnig the whole thng in English. Wanna practice your French ? Go here, a windsurfing forum. Dunno if you'll be able to see the pictures if not a member though.
French is no problem, and the pics are there
And that is quite a mess. Let's hope there is more to repair than to rebuild
I had the day off from work, and leveled a fretboard in my spare time. Otherwise, no.
A friend in North Carolina says his house fared well, but there is an 18' sailboat from at least 3 blocks away that is now sitting in his front yard. My cousin in Clearwater FL opened his house to friends from Brevard who evacuated, but their home is apparently alright.
I have quite a bit of family in Florida and in North and South Carolina. Fortunately, none of my relatives sustained any damage. Two of my grand daughters were in a mandatory evacuation zone in Florida. I counseled them to vacate and move inland. They didn't. One of my sons sand bagged their doors. No damage or even any water up to their apartment.
I have survived a number of hurricanes. You generally get quite a bit of warning time for preparation and/or evacuation. Each situation is different.
Now part of the Bahamas is a different thing all together....
