I was hoping that this would get the interest of some of the members who might be in its path.
I lived here when Floyd came through in 96 I think it was. We had 19 inches of rain over a two day period. My basement became an indoor pool and it took days to pump it out. During a later storm, Isabel in 2006 the power was out over a three state area. I saw stars in the sky over my house in the middle of a city that I'd never seen from here. It was so dark we could see the Milkyway smudge !
Early storms that have taken a direct hit on this area have changed the coast line. There is an area of Norfolk called Willoughby Spit. There are homes and businesses in this area. That area didn't exist before 1933. In 1933 an unnamed storm hit on Aug 23 ( Ironic isn't it) and devastated the area. It left that spit of land there. Thats a real good amount of sand churned up.
Looking for more storm stories while we wait and see what this she-devil is gonna bring.

I've been juggling back and forth today
between the quake and Hurricane Irene.
The quake may not be over as they just
had a 4.2 aftershock or was it another
quake? Anyway as for Irene I have
been thru several hurricanes - I advise
everyone on the east coast to be prepared.
Get your supplies now before the stores are
out of everything, board up your windows,
think of whether you will have to evacuate
or not and listen closely to updates
on the weather channels. Stay safe everyone-
I am thinking of you.
