Me too.. Any details asap please!!
. I have helped with the aftermath today. Osborn island and the house on it are completely devastated. 95% of the house are destroyed and whatever isn't wiped out is not livable do to all the water in the house. IOWA court them house are the worst. Majority of them house have no first floors and I heard once they are knocked down there will be no more houses built there. Majority of the houses in the water property in little egg/mystic are either completely destroyed or not livable do to water damage. God bless all that have lost there homes and everything they had and especially the little boy and other people that were found dead. RIP

If anyone has any information on the damage that has bestowed upon Mill Creek Road in Ocean County New Jersey it would be much appreciated. My sister's home is there, she is currently stating with me in PA and the officials have not yet told us about the severity of the damage and friends that have tried to get to the street were turned away, as it is blocked. Can anyone please tell me the severity of the damage.

Just heard from one of my neighbors on E. Susquehanna by the cul-de-sac. Total devastation! 5 feet of water in the houses. What was there is either gone or destroyed. My heart goes out to all who have lost everything including their lives. Sorry is the only word that I can come up with but yet, so inadequate.

I have a house on South Burgee that my brother was living in. He went down yesterday, it's basically been completely destroyed. Water marks inside the house are between 6-7 feet up on the walls. It was a single story ranch so it's done.

My daughter was just at our house on Mullica Road, just 2 blocks from there. We only had a half inch of water according to her and so did the house next door. But he stayed during the storm and said that our 2 houses are on a little hill and we formed a little island at high tide. He said that most of the houses had between 1-3 feet of water in them and most docks and floating docks had damage. Power came back last night and Twin Lakes Blvd and Radio Road are open. Goof Luck to your Aunt.
