It's just a moderate storm here, but the power went out anyway. Bleh.
Power has flickered on and off several times this morning, seems to have stabilized in the last hour or so.

Creek is running high but still in its banks. River is a little over 3' now, well below any level of concern at this point.

More shots from the FL panhandle.
Spoiler: Panama City Beach (click to show/hide)
Spoiler: Mexico Beach (click to show/hide)
Spoiler: Port St. Joseph (click to show/hide)

Half a million without power across FL, GA, and the Carolinas.

It was steady here until the transformer blew about 1, ETA is 5pm but they've already warned they're overwhelmed. Friend in Hillsborough lost power about the same time, last time they were hit sooner and harder.

So the deathtoll is 13, but the worst areas haven't been looked into yet. 1.5 Million without power.

No word yet on The Prettiest Kyuuki. Five days until we put them on the missings persons list. How are our other local forumites?

Lot of flash flooding in VA, some areas are still without power. I don't think anyone here expected it to be as bad it was after traveling so far over land. 5 Deaths in VA alone, I'm afraid to think about what things must be like in the areas closer to where evacuations happened.

My complex had the power flicker a dozen times or so but no real damage or danger here.

It's good to hear your ok Dunam, but the silence from the others is, well, concerning.

It's hard to believe this is one of the most powerful storms to make landfall on record, but, well, here we are. The death toll is currently 18 and rising, with many others remaining unaccounted for. The number of deaths from inland areas and places that weren't hit so bad has led to fears of an even worse toll in the areas around Panama City and Mexico Beach.

Ispil has been posting on the AmeriPol thread, so, he's okay. As for Frumple, there are still over a 160k customers (that's address/location, not individual people) without power in Florida, so, it'll be a while. He mentioned that it was going to landfall to the west of him, so, he's certainly avoided the worst portions and I'm pretty sure he's okay, just that it'll take a while for power and communications to get restored.

...as ok as one can be in Florida, which is a living hell the likes of which I pray the rest of us never know.

Full admission: I've been cross country, to all but 11 states, and one which I've never set foot in is Florida. With any luck I'll never have to change that.

Just avoid the north part and you're fine.

Drivers are awful everywhere, though.

I mean, not that I would, but to enter Florida requires crossing the north part, because the Gulf is in many ways worse, and frankly Georgia ain't no fun for nobody.

*Asheville five*
Shame I moved back home to the Triangle after a few years.
I sure miss Land of Sky though.

Mostly - no, just the hiking.  It's only the hiking I miss.

And that the storms, when they hit, hit hard and the thunder echoed, it echoed and there was a vantage point a mere mile walk away where I could look over the grey valley.

Florida isn't that bad.  If you ignore the weather, and the drivers, and the crazy people literally cussing out traffic while standing in the middle of a major road (saw that happen today at work, my boss called the police)...

...Actually yea, Florida sucks, and I'm in central Florida, the part of Florida where yer so far south there are so many old people who moved here for retirement it starts becoming the north again.  I can't imagine what it's like in Tallahassee and thereabouts.
