    Have you still got a high water mark on your house from Floyd? I have a friend who has one on a shed door. It is at the level of my nose. I helped another friend when his house had had about 18" of storm surge flow in and out. The whole neighborhood was hauling junk appliances and furniture to the curb, except for one house. They have a double wide trailer almost 8 feet in the air, on a concrete block foundation, and they were having a cook-out on their deck like nothing had happened. Park the cars on high ground, watch the water come in...watch the water go out. That's the way to do it if you have to live on low ground.

    I hope you can keep your feet dry.

    It's starting here now, 40 mph gusts and lots of rain. Forcast for 6-12" rain and maybe 75 mph gusts. Off to work I go.

    broker u do not understand how series this was...............A1A washed out (and its over 4 feet from the ocien...how do you spell BIG WATER)
    2(maybe more) trees fell down
    severial roofs on MH's left

    MAYBE that's why they built A1 1/2 mile inland
    or is that US1

    (the big ns road not 95)

    it was nice of matthew to stay off shore
    if it had gone north 30 miles inland

    thank you LORD JESUS CHRIST

    If the referenced newspaper (shooting at FL mall) were real - this would be news.

    What it looks like on closer examination is a Stormfront - type outlet. IOW - fake.

    A bit of research has shown that story to be fictitious.

    this is a posting from A Forum Brother out of Jax FL..
    Water damage in the office, carpet is wet, but it is from rain blasting into the door at high speeds and coming around the jamb. No real damage of any kind. Jax Beach looks incredibly good.

    Sloth & Im so glad he posted

    My ex wife lives on Merritt Island, on a canal only a stones' throw from the Banana River. She called my mom to let her know she was fine and had evacuated to a friends house. I mentioned that to my daughter (she lives in Rockledge) and she laughed...said her mom's friend's place was a second story condo...still on Merritt Island. :lol:

    31 counted road breaches in the county... upwards of 12+ inches of rain. Roof and building damage. Water system has been compromised, county phone exchange including 911 are down, but we are well...

    Matthew is gone, wind damage minimal but rivers still cresting.They just evacuated an area today and leaving it to the floods. The flood damage will be in the multi-millions. Roads still closed, bridges still washed out, hundreds so far now have nothing. Some areas may be weeks before getting power back. We just had floods here last October and now again this October. I'm thinking of moving up closer to Bruce in Alaska. A friend with an airplane is better than owning an airplane....
