There is traffic flowing over the bridge today and I can some cars moving around town. But I don't think much is open.

Apparently the owner of the sailboat that broke loose has no insurance on it.

Not surprising that he has no insurance. Some marinas do not check well enough. Think the sailboat has enough value to cover the damages?

I think many of the main streets are flowing ok, just any streets off them. Of course with more rain on the way, hard to predict.

Luckily I don't think the damage it caused was to bad. But I would think in the very worst case the sale of the sailboat would cover it if necessary.

I believe the sailboat was on a mooring or at anchor when it broke loose. So the marina was only indirectly involved as the target.

Sea Star's El Faro
There was a reported ping from their EPIRB but it went silent right after. CG now reporting finding wreckage and life rings from the ship - still in the area of Crooked Island.

Why did missing El Faro sail straight INTO Hurricane Joaquin? | Daily Mail Online

The good news is Joaquin has diminished to a Cat 2 before reaching Bermuda.

The bad news is the East Coast flooding is only getting worse.

Joaquin appears to no longer be a threat to land. Appears from the other storm one more day of rain today while water from creeks and rivers still rising especially with broken dams.

Still minimal information available about parts of the Bahamas and other island nations, while the damages in SC won't be fully known for a while. Myrtle Beach and Wilmington getting 2" more today before it stops. Some areas have gotten over 20". It's amazing to think that this area was bracing for Joaquin, got a reprieve from it, and then got this from the unnamed storm.

As much as we'd like to get to our family and friends in Myrtle Beach and to our boat, we're staying in Charlotte at least one more day. Not going to add to the problems. Seems the only ones not impacted by this storm are those in their boats. They have just been stuck due to sea conditions.

More rain here today, but we are just north of the worst hitting SC and southern NC. The NE winds have crammed the water up the Pamlico....
A shot from this morning shows our dock overwashed, but everything riding just fine... Ironically, supposed to be sunny and beautiful from Wednesday on...

Underway about 10 miles off of Bailey Island SC right now. Following seas 4-6+. Winds 20-25. Not to bad a ride and it's supposed to get better the farther south we go.

Well, you got away sooner than we did. If we had been at the boat, we would have headed out. We're headed to Myrtle Beach. We found a route open all the way. There are many hundreds of closed roads in SC. We should be there in about an hour. We will probably leave tomorrow. I don't know if others have seen the shots on CNN and other news reports, but this storm caused incredible damage and more may come as all the water in Columbia eventually goes to the low country.
