No but thank you. It seems you like to report that which is not told. Thank you.
Well I live here in North Carolina and the power went off at 2:30 pm Saturday due to the high winds. It finally came back on Sunday morning at 9:30 am. We were told just before the power went off, that the storms were close to Sanford, at that time they said it would be another 1 hour before it hit here, and the worst of it wasn't heading this way. So we stayed home.

Sanford looks like a war zone. We got a cell phone call from a contractor in Sanford that needs my husbands help this coming week. He said there is about 50 homes in one sub division that all need new roofs. But he told us about Lowes at that time and said it was completely gone.

Our kids are on a 2 hour delay due to all of the damages on back roads, with tree limbs still down. But right here, we all fared well, not even limbs down, and the winds were Horrible for about 3 hours before the storm. I am shocked we didn't lose power earlier in the day. Fuquay Varina itself had minimal damages. The same thing with Lillington. Angier however had much more damages. My aunt lives in Erwin, I will get up with her today and see how bad it was there, but they say Dunn was hit very bad as well as Benson.

glad youre ok ohoh7.
North Carolina has done this to itself. The people down here believe it is fine to cut down every single tress and build new homes. Some places in the country have over 100 homes, and they sit side by side just like they would in a city. Cute little bushes planted around the fronts of the homes to make them look more pretty. yet not a single big tree to stop the winds. When you cut off 100 acres of woods, and put 200+ homes on it, that is when you see more tornadoes, The trees have always protected people and now they cut them all off to build more homes. So who's fault is it? Its the fault of the people here in North Carolina. I have seen this state go to hell in a hand basket over the past 20 years. They no longer grow crops, they grow houses.

They showed one man on the news in Raleigh last night and he was talking about what he saw, the whole place was houses and wide open greens for golf, well guess what? No freaking wonder they got a tornado, this is what happens to the rich when they want to live in a big wide open golf area. I hate to say it but its their own faults.

Even though I live in a small subdivision. I and others have been planting trees now for years, so it makes us a bit more safe, of course though only 1/2 mile away there is another sub, where people live like they do in other places, side by side on 1/2 and 1/4 acre lots. Luckily here its all 1/2 acre and 1 acre lots, so we have plenty of room to plant trees.

Thanks B. It could have been worse, much worse. I have to say I was nervous most of the day Saturday. The winds were my worst worry.

are you recording whats going on in your neck of the woods ohoh?
I wish I could video tape it but I can't. I however do keep it all writte down, this way every really bad storm we get, I can see if we are getting worse ones year after year, or if its just a fluke. Of course the moon had me scared last night. It had a halo. That means another bad storm coming in a few days.

hang in there, i`m thinking about you and your fam..
The worst storm we have ever gotten here was what we call the storm of water 2 years ago. We had a wall of water come right at the house. I have never seen anything like that before or since, but it was scary we could see it coming, and closed the door, and went to the other side of the house. I lost 2 windows, and my living room floor due to flooding in my living room. I ended up with a neighbors trash can on my roof. But luckily no other damages.
