Yes, well said Dave, and the rest. While I did not necessarily intend to make it or turn it into a political discussion, I feel as some of you others that politics do play a major part in how we, and any other country deals with its disasters and needs of individuals. Facts also help rather than rants.
I am a water professional and do spend time in Latin American Countries fighting water born diseases and have done so since Hurrican Mitch in Nicaragua. I have seen the politics of many of these nations and how they address the needs of their people. We in the U.S. are indeed truly blessed. Now for one fact- cholera does not kill "100000" people a year. Perhaps back in the dark ages it did but now with what has been done worldwide with safe drinking water it is down to less than 1,500 last year with most in Africa.
Please do not try to make me feel guilty for expressing feelings towards third world politics that do indeed lead to the death of thousands a year. I have seen it first hand and live it daily.

No, don't feel guilty. You're fine.

As an aside I would recommend you read "Dead Aid" by Dambisa Moyo. VERY interesting view of foreign aid.
The last one I remember was hurricane Dennis in 1999.

270 degrees from it's current path.

However, down to 45 mph, low wind tropical storm before heading back toward FL so likely a tropical depression if even that by the time it heads back to shore. Remnants of a storm.

Nicole is on a strange path too. Came NW as a tropical storm, reached CAT 1, then headed south last night as a CAT 2, then back a little south today as a tropical storm, now forecast to go south the next two days, then back NNW, still as a tropical storm. All this while floundering around at sea.

Does anyone know if KJ is still at Barefoot Landing. Looks like they will be getting some strong wind. Being close to Little River Inlet the surge could be high too.

We just got word that Hobo's still on her stands. We're going to try to get out later today, if not, tomorrow. We've been camping out at a friends house. Thanks everyone for your support and thoughts. By the way, living by candle light is highly over rated.

No haven't heard anything in quite awhile...thought I saw something but not showing up in recent posts.....maybe a side reference that had him out of Myrtle...but just can't place the discusdion.

Good to hear about your boat.

The other that I was thinking about was Donna from Palm Coast.....anyone hear about them?

It's down to a CAT 1 now. The national reports differ widely from local news up it's path. It's like a photo circulating of the Daytona Speedway showing 4' of water. Just one problem, the photo was from 2009.

Myrtle Beach forecast is now winds 75-80 mph so actually as strong as most places got. Hurricane far weaker but over land.

Starting to get substantial wind and rain here in Wilmington, NC. Power was off for a couple of hours, but now back on.

Just a quick post as we just got power and internet back. We made it with no damage a testament to a great location (Loggerhead Marina at Grand Harbor in Vero Beach) and 16 3/4 inch lines with proper chafe protection and boat prep.

No damage!!

Generally it is uncommon for a hurricane to go south after turning north. However check Nicole's track, another active storm, which has done so.

For the most part, Charleston appears to have escaped serious damage. Still some flooding, minor, to deal with. More accurate access net late this afternoon

Nicole has pretty much just floundered around at sea, gone north, gone south, north, headed south now and then supposed to reverse and head back north. It's good there is no land where it's been going back and forth.
