In our area which is Ft. Pierce, about 45 miles north of Wast Palm Beach, it's all pretty much above ground electricity. We have a light pole/transformer next to our house. The power finally came back here (we have local utilties, rather than FPL), but the latest news says that some parts may be out for 4 weeks or so. 6 million without power as of this morning.
We didn't get much damage here (none to the house, except for the very corner of the roof hangover). I'm a bit suspicious that a tornado may have passed through our yard as there is a swatch of heavy foliage/fence damage that doesn't seem to match the rest of the street. We heard a couple noises that may have been that, but not quite sure. Appreciate once again the advice on here on what to expect. It wasn't that scary really, not as much as I thought, but we were on the north side which probably didn't get the winds as much as the south did.
Some places were closed, but it looks like for the most part it was business as usual for Wal-Mart, the banks, etc, much different scenario than after Frances/Jeanne.
