    @ Offshore, Holy Crap!
    bridge is still standing....but the surrounding area is a mess.
    hopefully fixing NS will become a much higher priority

    Damn guys. GREAT updates!

    Grantlee- the long lasting effects after these storms range from torn up beaches, ocean front homes destroyed, boardwalks and businesses destroyed, overall morale of the town killed.

    Tyrone-JEB Little Creek Ft. Story


    VB UPDATE: AI surfed croatan specifically along the camp pendleton base from about 2pm-dark. Started off large and in charge with 6-8ft occ 10ft bombs with hard offshores. A lot of people were actually making the drops despite the hard winds. there were a few rights but mainly lefts due to the north in the wnw winds. the size dropped pretty durastically(as expected) over just a few hours. when i left it was around chest high with occ shoulder sets. the rain has pretty much subsided, and the winds have gone down a little bit. there is moderate flooding in VB but its worse in other areas like Norfolk. I live in the hilltop area and never lost power.

    I really wish you all in the dirty jerz the best of luck. I heard ocnj is looking terrible. hopefully njsurfer42 can give us an update soon

    regarding AC: some good can come out of an event like this, in the long run. in the aftermath, there will be money to rebuild (insurance money, FEMA, federal and state $'s). in the same way that post-Hurricane Andrew $'s built and rebuilt much of So. Florida in the 90's, maybe some of sorely blighted AC can be rebuilt. e.g. those shots of boardwalk pieces floating down the street are from parts of the boardwalk that were long neglected and in disrepair (Maine Ave, for those who know the city). now, maybe things like that might finally get restored.
