How are you guys holding up? I should be okay. Strong wind and rain is expected, but Irma is not expected to hit my area directly.

According to those I've talked to that live where it hit harder, it's not as catastrophic as people were led to believe. A lot of power outages, which were expected, along with fallen trees and other damage here and there. But as far as I know, houses still stand and people are alive. Flooding might be an issue depending on location too, Floridans around the coast usually have good flooding prevention. All this is just second-hand knowledge, so I don't have as many details as someone who was directly in it would have.

Yeah that sounds about right. I know some of my friends in Georgia are having power outages.

Our area in Palm Beach County was alright at the end of it. Could have been much worse here. Some torn fences, felled trees, etc but nothing major.

 

I went down to the keys with a team last week. The damage there was really bad, I took some pictures.

There was debris like this for miles. In the residential areas there were miles and miles of trash like this as well, but in some areas the piles were half as tall as these.

These were the trucks and machines they were using to clear it all. Its a big job and likely going to take a very long time. There were all kinds of piles of appliances and furniture too like washers, dryers, refrigerators, beds, couches and such all ruined and tossed out. There were several trailer homes left on the side of the road smashed up too.

 

For those who don't know, the Florida Keys are the little island on the southernmost tip of Florida.
 

 

It's also worth mentioning that Puerto Rico has suffered horribly after Maria, the strongest and most devastating hurricane to hit them possibly ever. Its a mess...

@Shoe I'm glad to hear you're alright. It's really sad seeing how much destruction Puerto Rico and the Keys have suffered.

Wow. That looks pretty horrendous to say the least.
