Not so bad as a hurricane but these Tropical Storms can cause some havoc. Eastern hemisphere of this thing went over us - the worst half. Sparrow weathered it well. Rocked to 30 knot winds and walls of rain. Rain flying sideways finds holes that rain falling more-or-less straight down doesn't - we have a couple leaks.
Only one boat broke her mooring and wandered off uptide. Duet grounded herself in a safe place and the Seaarc brought her back this morning. I see Duet safely rafted to a shrimp boat for now.
Lot of water in the streets but this is normal after the many millions of dollars spent after Irma to build hurricane friendly streets down there. Yea, right. Never used to flood at every drop of rain...
3 tornados touched down. No picks of the Meeting street one because they had all the streets blocked off by the time I got over there. Higher rent district got hit but mostly just trees. No mention of houses damaged.
Nearer me, heck in line-of-sight to me, something smacked the ground and only lasted a few hundred yards but did plenty of damage to trees. Cool how the trees are laid down in the same direction amidst trees snapped off 20 feet up. That was a lot of power applied real quick. It's posted property so I couldn't go in but you can see the path of vengeance.
And the 3rd made a mess of an RV park up by the base. Here are pics I pulled off the FB and an article from the DM. Several trailers went into the river and swept away.
Lessa was terrified and foaming at the mouth for awhile. I just let her be and eventually Erin went into her cubbyhole and stayed with her. An bit after the last of the lightning I wiped Lessa's face and petted her. She started purring and then laid down for a snooze. They are fine now.
