I'm right on the water, near Indian River inlet and bay. the front half of the property is high enough to be not in the flood plane,, but i expect the dock and part of the gazebo to be under water. My biggest concern is the high winds, and these big trees that are being disassembled, right behind the house.

The winds so far have gone from mild to ferrocious, and back to mild. The yard is trashed, but so far, we haven't lost power, and have had no problems. The worst is yet to come, somewhere around 0200.

sidenote: the sig pic is of my boat, but this is not at my house or lift. The boat is safely tucked in a pole barn.

VA, near Richmond: Big tree down in the front yard and LOTS of wind/rain. Cable/Internet/phone all connected and went out about 1:00pm. (currently using a laptop with an aircard powered by a generator). Went 25 miles to my grandfathers to get a generator running at his place this evening and had to zig-zag all over the county because of downed trees to get there (very rural), but otherwise fine. Seems nobody for miles has power but I can hear a bunch of generators running......when I turn mine off Heading to my fathers river house in the AM near Williamsburg where the storm surge could cause a problem.

Eye is almost here and doesn't seem as though the wind picked up. She's making landfall and its dieing off.

Branches & trees down, none hit the house luckily. Blowing 60 or so out of the
east, raining real hard. Power's out but genset kicked in. Cable is out. 3 hours
until high tide, but water level right now is a bit above a normal high. Boat is
riding this one out fine so far. Hopefully just a few more hours until it starts to
abate.

Lots of rain and lots of down trees and wires. Still have power at my house. But Suffolk PD is having one hell of a busy night/morning. LIPA and local towns will have a very busy day with tree cleanup and fixing all the down wires.

Lost power 2 hours ago but now it is back on here in Suffolk County, Long Island. Waiting for the worst to come yet but at least by the end of the day it will be settling down.

Had a few inches of water in my house. In the driveway it was over my knees. We didnt lose power until the middle of the night. The high tide at 8 pm last night is what did it to us. We wouldve been fine if it wasnt for that.
