Temple, I am so glad you are all right. In my 70 years, I have been through too many storms to count and each was frightening. My first experience was a Typhoon in the Orient. My worst was being in a house picked up by a tornado. I live directly in the path of Florence, on the NC/SC line below Charlotte. I am waiting for the water to go down to access the damage which does not look bad, but the water is still rising in areas around me. There have not been any mandatory evac orders in my area, but we are under a flash flood watch. Keep safe. Blessings.
Marilyn, I am so glad to hear you and your animals are safe. I have three rescued dogs. I brought the 6-month-old pit bull inside with the two 7 pound older Maltese to keep him safe. I can't imagine leaving a pet out in this. We are still experiencing rain and flash floods in our area. It may be a while before I can get out to survey the damage but it does not look too bad. Lost some seventy-year-old Pecan trees in Hugo. Can't see any trees down now, but I can see small limbs across the property. Thankfully we did not get the high wind. Keep safe. Blessings.
Jack, hope your damage is not too bad in your town when the water goes down. I know how bad water from the floods can be. My daughter lives in Houston and is just now getting her home back in order from their flood after Harvey. Blessings
