    I have been switching back and fourth between the news channels, doesn't look like there was much of a surge in south Jerz. Action News has a guy in Margate, the water didn't get past the dunes, but thats all I saw so far.

    based on the bombs coming through at pumphouse this morning around 8:30 I can't imagine sea bright fared well. Absolute bombs detonating out there!!

    If there is anyone who should have damage it is me. I live on south point that sits right in the middle of Chicoteague Bay MD . No flooding, no storm surge, no wind damage. The eye went right over us last night. Now I am watching the cam wondering where I can paddle out, lol.

    Water never made it past the dunes in AC. Peeked it all this morning and there is minimal damage. Couple of branches out in the street and some fences knocked over on the beach. Other than that, all is good. Never lost power. No flooding at all. I did run out of doughnuts yesterday though, so Irene definitely made a bit of an impact on me.

    Ended up staying put last night... after the surge was downgraded from 12' to 3-6'. Figured I was all boarded up, and as long as the ocean wasn't gonna come rushing up the street, we'd be ok.

    Lots of downed limbs, mostly small ones. Lots of debris... leaves and sticks. Several downed power and phone lines (one across my driveway), and the cops are cruising around telling everyone to go home and stay put. The ocean front is completely impassable, as are all of the low lying streets. The river is high right about now, and it's still not coming up the street very far. I'd say it's about as bad as, or slightly less than, the '92 storm.

    Yes we did stay. We had nowhere else to go, all of our relatives where in areas at least as vulnerable and all the hotels were full. I have a dog, a cat and 6 chickens to think about, lol. To be honest, even though I knew there was potential for trouble I have lived through so many hurricanes that this one didn't look that bad to me and the idea of evacuating to somewhere else just as dangerous and being stuck with hundreds or thousands of other people sounded more dangerous.

    Good to hear everyone is ok.......looks like Spring Lake may have got it the worst or AP...I wonder what Sandy Hook looks like....I'm sure most of it has moved to Cape May....

    I hope all of it was moved to Cape May. Bring back the old Sandy Hook, please!!

    Not eyes on, but a cop friend I just talked to said Sea Bright was hit bad with flooding. At 8am, at high tide, the surf was crashing over the seawall. Many sets of steps going over the wall were destroyed or damaged. Large jetty boulders displaced. As the tide has dropped, so has the water level on the ocean side. But the river water is still high in town, but as the tide drains out, a lot of that water will also recede.

    No word on the Hook yet.

    Ha, I wish i had the time to do that. I work on the Island so I take my truck over to surf. Got it really good on Friday. 6 hours of fun surf before the storm. I really wish I could go now but they closed the bridge over. I will be hunting north a little later. Here is an example of how protected my yard is from the wind, my chicken coop is unfinished and has a tarp as a roof covering. I took the chickens out and put them in the shed before the storm and expected the coop to be wiped out. Went out this morning and the tarp is still there and other then a little water inside there is no damage. That tarp is held on by staples. We went through Isabel in the same way, no damage, no flooding, nothing. We must be in a weird wind shadow right here.

    i stayed inland for a night and lost power, it still isnt back on they said. when i got back here i found that we hadn't even lost power once, there was no flooding on our end other than the wetlands (i live in lbi), and no wind damage whatsoever. the beach on the other hand is completely gone on the north end, and a sick sandbar has formed. it looks like the water reached the top of the dunes over here but never really made it over the side. the dune grass is all matted and some private walkways are ripped up, but i didn't see any real damage to any of the houses. i can't wait to surf the sandbar tomorrow, i checked it at dead high tide and it was already breaking 3-4 times farther out than it has all summer at low tide
