Good luck Felton on Maria. The wind doesn't seem like it should be a problem but no one needs a lot more rain to cause water damage.

Power just came back on in Lovely Bay yesterday. Cell service is back but spotty. The mail boat is unloading as I type this so the "lucky" people can start putting felt and shingles up on roofs. A lot of houses need their roofs repaired or completely rebuilt. I understand that the damage was no where near the 80 to 90% figures the media was throwing around but that's not a lot of comfort for the people who had homes damaged or destroyed. Cat Island seems to be the place that was hit the hardest.
