Default Storm damage

Just got off of the phone with my fishing partner, he's working on PI today,after giving the thumbs up on my boat(as well as others at our marina) he proceded to tell me about the grounded sailboats on 1/2 tide rocks and another on Joppa flats,McKenzies marina was evacuated and the outside docks recieved some damage, he went on to tell me that there was sand all the way to the cross roads just before the PI bridge that required a bulldozer to clear,he further stated that there was a sailboat in the road being removed by another bulldozer,asw ell as others capsized in the basin.. hopefull everyone on the Island made it through the storm safely,this mornings high tide should be the last one we need to worry about for awile...tonight back to fishing.....At least long enough to recharge my boat's house battery.
:roll:

Nasty storm that just wouldn't go away. The little fishing village, Camp Ellis, down the road from where we have our beach house in Maine, was on the National News yesterday. The storm surge wiped out the road. I spoke with one on my buddies, who has a house and boat building shop in Camp Ellis. He told me that for 3 straight nights they got battered. He was out each night clearing seaweed from the storm drains. One of the larger trawlers, moored in the mouth of the Saco river, broke free from its mooring and wiped out a good section of the public dock. I'll be headed up later on today to check out the house. We're situated on one of the highest spots along the barrier island, so I don't expect any damage.

Yeah, Camp Ellis has already lost 9 houses over the past 15 years. I think the unstated consensus of the politicians is to let the Atlantic take it. Here's an aerial satillite shot of the area. The red dot is my house. South of it, you can see the Saco river. Camp Ellis is on the North side of the Saco river, right at the end/mouth.
