Hurricane Photos


Flooding in New Bern NC...


Flooding somewhere on the coast of NC...


The ocean at Nag's Head, NC...

A couple who live aboard their sailboat in Norfolk VA tried to ride out the hurricane but were beached.  Thankfully, they were rescued...


Flooding and damage has occurred inland as well.  In Wilson NC, two backyard trees fell, slicing thru the roof...


A tree fell onto a car in Hillsborough NC...


Flooding...  notice the car lights are on.   I wonder if the driver escaped...

    I hope you are staying dry and well powered. We are all watching this storm and praying for our countrymen and bloggy friends.

  4. Hope since you are blogging that the worst is past you and yours. The serious rain has just reached us here in central NJ. No wind yet. Got my fingers crossed for the trees to stay in place. If I have electricity I'll check in tomorrow. Selina

  8. We finally got power back and it finally quit raining! But, we are so blessed that that's the worst thing that happened. Good Night Irene!

  9. WHOA! Glad you are OK in your area and that your family is also OK. I have to admit, I am way happier dealing with earthquakes in California than hurricanes and tornadoes that they have elsewhere.
