    Stay safe all. This is going to be a bad one. The entire East Coast is going to see a piece of this storm. Either a direct hit or after heading inland and north...JJ

    I just read that they have recorded 83' waves on the front of the storm. Surge will be nasty.

    Two of my Cousins, and their families, were wiped out by Katrina when it rolled into Mississippi.
    Even the slab was gone from their homes.
    My cousin Vic, when they could go back, actually stepped on a body covered in the mud.
    No body wanna be that body...
    Listen to the evacuation orders!
    And God Help you.

    I hear there are allot of power lines down. Be careful around any water.

    A good friend is an international first responder and went to Bay St. Louis, MS two days after Katrina hit. He had me help him with a presentation he wanted to give, complete with pictures. New Orleans would have been fine if the levees had held, but from what I saw in Mississippi, nothing could have withstood the wind and storm surge that hit in Bay St. Louis.

    So thankful neither of those things were a problem with this one, but the rain is unbelievable. I have a niece whose house in NC is six blocks from the coast where it came ashore, and the house is perfectly intact, but the water is unreal. It is going to be worse inland, when those rains hit the mountains and come down as flash floods. This ain't over yet.

    As bad as it is... Everyone in Florence's path is or should be counting their small blessings that she steadily weakened from a Cat4 to a Cat1 at landfall.
    The rain/flooding and Cat1 wind damage is bad enough as is.
    Mother Nature can be a real .....
    Prayers for the dead/injured and dispossessed.
    And doing 180° reversal, I wish they'd actually go back to shooting the damned looters.

    I was inside Ivan's eye wall, sideswiped HARD by Katrina and a few others thankfully smaller.
    Two roofing jobs, siding on the house, fences, all my Water Oaks, power losses for over a week.
