    Central VA to the shore under tornado watch until 9PM. Flash flood warnings too. Time to go get the generator out again and get ready. Looks like center of storm will pass over tidewater.

    The power of water. Yes there is wind damage but it looks like the majority was storm surge destruction. Sheesh.

    I did see pictures of other areas that did have significant wind damage. But those aerial shots you can see the destruction of the storm surge. It reminded me of a tsunami.

    No matter which force of nature a hurricane uses, a lost home is a lost home. My prayers go out to them all.
