If you are here learning about this? 
Well... I am glad i worried about redundant systems. 

NOAA has just issued a WARNING for our area... My emergency radio warning just went OFF. 
Buckle down and prepare if you are not an idiot. YES, it is likely not going to be necessary... But, the point of preparing for the worst is so you can survive if you are wrong.


Heads up....

I've been looking at that storm on TV. I wondered if you guys were near it.

Good luck.

Read a verse in the bible that goes "Woe be on to those that live on the coastlines!"

We're under a tornado watch right now but both of my kids live where the storm is expected to make landfall with a projected 12' storm surge and 90 mph winds.

They got a direct hit. The county my daughter lives in has a 99% power outage. My son live north of her and his county has a 77% power outage. Both are without power and have power lines down blocking the roads. Neither had severe damage to their houses.

If my daughter can get out, she may come here until power is restored next week.

Bob's family took the damage. 
Glad they are all right.

Sorry to see the hit your family took, Bob.
I hope all of our Florida folk suffered minimal or no damage!

My son got power back this morning but my daughter's area could be out for 2-4 more days. She'll lose all the food in her freezer if it's that long.
