Just came back from St Augustine. 4 sailboats on side of street in my hood south of the 312 bridge. They cleared the marsh and were up on the side of the road. Lots of big trees uprooted, some on houses. Still no power as of noon time. Daytona, Flagler , Palm Coast and St Augustine got hit hard. Tightened up building codes are working! Very little roof damage (unless tree hit) visible. Lots of big trees taking out power lines. Anastasia Island was still closed supposedly until tomorrow. SR 206 bridge is closed for traffic and maybe for a while, structural "issue". National Guard was keeping post at Bridge Of Lions.

The cottage we rented, like Hobo came out pretty much unscathed. Yahoo! The grounds and the surrounding homes didn't fair so well. They got nailed on the back side of the front when the wind came from the west.

Yes. The owners had sealed everything. Water came up over the porch and came in through the front door gasket only. Unfounately, their house had 3 feet of water and mud in it.

Lot of damage in Green cove Springs marina. 8 boats drag the ball. One of them sunk at the peer. Floating docks damages. They said that I got lucky - just little scratch. Luck maybe the factor, but i had 3 lines attach from my boat to the peer.

Just got back from adding a couple more lines to the boat. Track has been drifting North all day and now have Gale warnings tonight through Sunday night. Nothing like working on dock lines during a downpour. Probably unnecessary; better safe than sorry.

Man, that's good news, Larry. Don't mind sayin, yours was the situation I was most concerned about. I figured you'd have that barge to contend with for sure. Great news.

The owners of the Krogen 39 in a slip down in the Bahamas also got news that their boat came through unscathed. Hard to believe since they were within 10 miles of the eye. The only injury I know of was one owner in Daytona Beach who fell in a Walmart parking lot while evacuating. He spent 11 hours on the road and never got out of FL, spending the night in a highway rest stop with a bunch of other exhausted evacuees.

It's always difficult comparing storms. Matthew never reached the catastrophic levels feared most as it never hit land at a level beyond a CAT 1 or tropical storm level. Even the surge didn't wipe out major areas and the loss of lives is very modest in the US even with some padding of numbers with deaths not necessarily "hurricane" caused, but just happened during the storm. However, the damage is going to ultimately be quite high, simply because of the size of the area impacted as it's from South Florida through NC. Areas of coast to be rebuilt, flooding damages, a lot of store front here and sign here. Things will be back to "almost normal" very quickly, but all the damage won't be repaired for quite a while. People not impacted to the high degree they might have been but a larger number of people impacted in smaller ways.

A glimpse into the future last summer about the time of Joaquin.

We were in Charlotte, NC and our boat in Myrtle Beach as the storms, not related to the hurricane, caused huge flooding. Columbia, SC was badly hit. Much of southeastern NC and coastal SC was flooded. We were rather shocked by some areas, such as the fact that I-95 was closed and many areas along it flooded. When the roads opened, we drove back to Myrtle Beach. We casually remarked as to if this type storm caused this, what if it had been Joaquin or another hurricane.

Well, now we know, unfortunately. NC appears to have more damage than any other hit area, most of it from flooding. More damage than one would have expected from a CAT 1 hurricane, and most of it is not from surge but from flooding just from the quantity of rain. Fayetteville is hit hard and they're 90 miles up the Cape Fear from Wilmington. They received 14.9 inches of rainfall in a 24 hour period.

Greetings from Ocracoke. Winds at 4:00 were 65 gusting over 80. Things are better today at 40mph. At least the rain is all but gone. It would be nice to have shore power but we're not complaining.
