    News reports are most concerning and hoping that everyone is OK. The South in general has had some very rough conditions of late.

    Do report in as and when you can with any news.

    OK here, no troubles. It all went north of us. Our guys at work are out on a 1500 foot tower collapse though.

    We had a down pour and lots of lightening in the Lee Road area at about 4:30 amSome of the guys I used to work with say Lady Lake is a real mess. It's a miracle that more people were not killed. I hope that FEMA helps this time.

    My friend in Palm Bay heard a lot of wind and some heavy rain, but that was about the size of it.

    The storm woke me up so I've been up since about 2:30am but there wasn't any damage here in Maitland.

    I heard that the Red Cross needs cash more than anything else at the moment. I'll send some cash and donate blood ASAP.

    I don't think looting will be an issue in the area where this happened.

    Central FL is pretty laid back. (ie. not big city folk.) IMHO, looting is a big city phenomenon in most cases.

    Just Lots Of Wind and Rain Here...

    I was awakened during the night by the wind and rain, but no damage here...

    The loss of so many lives just a little south is a very sad note!
