We're are in east central FL. All is well here. Lost some roof (as expected) but that is minimal compared to what some have experienced in south FL and up the west coast even some nearby us with flooding and downed trees.

We are very fortunate to have gotten power restored so quickly.

Boat is currently draining of water in the yard but is otherwise fine.

Taking a quick break out of the rain now. I hope everybody else is fine and well.

Lots of strong winds last night.
Trees down, minimal property damage around sarasota from what I seen this morning.

Neighbors pool cage and others fences smashed due to downed trees.

Some flooding here and there.

Trees down house intact.

Family and friends OK.

We got lucky around north Tampa area. It missed us.

Hope to see all with the same boats in their sig. once the storm has passed.
I have a sister in Ft. Myers who stayed w/some friends in a condo bldg. but haven't heard how their house & boat made out. Best of luck to all.

Update. Talked to my sis Mon. PM and they're OK but can't get to their house due to street flooding. They never lost power where they stayed in FM.

Pretty good in Grand Bahama, not sure about west end, was still pretty totaled from Matthew.
power off but being restored island wide, prob. gusts to 85 last night, roads pretty clear.
High tide at midnight coincided with strongest gusts/wind from the south, maybe 6" water over the dock boards.
On gen right now, water is on.
We dodged a bullet for sure, all the best to Fla members,

My house in Cape Coral didn't even loose a shingle. Guess I did a good job on the new roof ( stripped it down to the trusses) last March. My cousin's boat across the street on the lift didn't get touched. Thought I was going to have an excuse to build a new house.

House and family are fine. Power went out around 10:30 or so last night. Some pretty good sized tree limbs came down, but luckily missed everything expensive. A couple massive limbs blocked one end of my road, but county utilities were already out to take care of those. On generator power at the moment, and good for a few days. Ventured out earlier, and saw a lot of uprooted trees not far from me.

Went by boat, and all looks well there. I couldn't get a closer look due to lack of power. Boat was still on the trailer and it didn't appear that any trees were on top of her.

Power out all over the place around here. I couldn't find a single traffic light that was functioning, and all gas stations in the area were dark. Cell service is extremely spotty, but I've got internet, phone and TV still as long as the generator is running. Overall, I'd say we fared pretty well. Could have been much worse. For a while, the official track had the eye going right over my house as at least a cat 3. Glad it weakened before it hit our area.

That was a massive storm. Power out all over the place from Miami to Jacksonville on the east, and pretty much everywhere on the west coast as well.

We are just north of Heathrow/Lake Mary. We lost power around 5:30PM yesterday and I assume it will be out for days/week(s).

We have generator powering refridges/lights/wifi and window AC in breakfast nook window which is keeping the living area reasonable.

Martin County.... all OK at the house but I'm in TN right now along with some family members at our cabin. .
Raining and cool in TN... 64*. Everything good in FL, some broke tree limbs is the worst of it, but no power. Neighbors locked and loaded. My son who's a fireman will be staying there for the duration. Generator on.

Boat, travel trailer, tractor, trucks, outbuildings and cars are just peachy.

Pond is full.

Sanford checking in here. Lost power around 22:00, no gen so a tough night sleeping. Lost a couple of trees, been out with the chainsaw all morning clearing my place and several neighbors places. Roof lost what looks like 20 something shingles, some other minor damage here and there but other than that, all is good.

Prayers go out to all the folks in the keys who took the real brunt of Irma.

Palm Bay here, little roof damage, boat was tight against west
side of the house (no damage). Few limbs down and on generator power.
Feel very lucky

Western Columbia County / Eastern Suwannee here. Power went out round 3 this morning and will likely be out for a few days.
No roof damage but I did lose a huge pecan tree and several pines.
From what I'm seeing power is out pretty much county wide.

All good here. In Jupiter, West of Pennock Point. Some small trees knocked down, lots of small branches down, pool full of crap but no real damage to complain about. Boat was on the trailer up against the west side of the house and didn't move an inch. Washed her this morning before even starting to clean up the yard... those leaves can stain!
Power was out less than 24 hours.
BTW - the max wind gust recorded Sunday afternoon by my Davis weather station that sits about 6' above my roof was 57mph.

Yep... dodged another bullet.
