Checking in from Savannah:

Great to hear Don & Terri are OK.

The situation in Port Wentworth (Savavvah) is dreary this AM. No power and the water is apparently turned on only for a few hours per day. The areas under the mandatory evacuation order (basically all areas east of I-95, including me and Martin too) are under restrictions akin to martial law. All roads in are blocked off and for those that stayed behind if you leave you can't get back in. I drove out yesterday looking for a hot meal (nothing open anyway) and the got turned back from two State Patrol road blocks trying to get back home-- but I found a third entry point with a friendly local cop who let me thru after verifying my address on my DL.

The power company crews are stretched pretty thin I guess and there are dozens of trees down over power lines in my neighborhood alone.

But the bad news is that Martin's house did get flooded at least a few inches-- he went in yesterday and found the floors and carpets wet. When I went by there yesterday at daybreak the water had receeded ant it wasnt apparent it had reached that level. And I didn't go inside.

We're going over with my truck this morning and move his belongings to my house before it all gets mildewed. He'll probably need to move, as the black mold is sure to take over.

Posted before I read Eddie's post from Don. Sounds like his damage exceeds minimal. Also looks like Martin has a mess as deal with as well.

We are home with power restored. =D> Best news is my 93 year old Dad and my 91 year old Mom did not fall while we were at the lake cabin. Took 24 hour vigil over 4 days by my sister and I but with God's help, we pulled it off.

Time to sleep. Thanks everyone for the prayers.

I live in Eastern NC and we still have severe flooding. I look after manufacturing for a textile company with 4 locations. My office is in the Burlington NC Plant which was the least impacted. Three of plants further east near the Coast lost power and two have just had it restored this morning. The third plant may have power again later today or tomorrow. That location houses most of our servers and that is having a severe impact on the other plants operations.

Many of our employees still do not have power and flooded roadways will prevent many from coming to work. But as with most of these kind of issues.....it could have been a lot worse.

I am so sending good thoughts to you and all those affected. My sister thought she was spared and woke up to flooding this morning. It isn't terrible as it is in other areas of Fayetteville, but it ain't over yet for so many there. crazy that the one state they said wouldn't be affected, has been hit hardest. Stay safe and dry!
