Bob in Oradell NJ (exit 165 off the Garden State Parkway, that's how people in NJ indicate their locations). Never lost power, about 9 inches of rain, no real damage. Ground is saturated, hopefully no trailing gusts take any trees down...
OK, check-in from Exit 89. Nice to have access again! Had to 'leave' for Sat & Sun AM. Preped the house before leaving. No damages from wind or water. Lagoons are high (top of bulkheads). Beachfronts took a beating, radio reports seem like minimal property danages.
Major flooding conditions on GSP at 136 (from a brook!), and 98 to 91 are still closed. My power is on, although the radio says 230k+ are dark statewide. Light rain and gusty 'back-end' wind right now (1700 Sun)
Based on what I have seen & heard.....We are LUCKY!!
Roads are washed out in 3 directions around me..... many nieghbors evacuated.....Scanner says the local shcools are filling up...... one nieghbor with a small kabota has fought all through the storm keeping the only way in/out
it's been interesting.....
