He has been out and around; houses look OK; lots and lots of trees down.

Little Harbour is reporting 50 mph winds, however the worst is over. They estimate wind gusts to 130 mph earlier with sustained winds of 80-100 mph. There are three boats on the rocks. Other boats survived the storm. The water damage isn't as bad as Floyd but the wind damage is worse. Source advises water was waist deep in Pete's foundry. No injuries to anyone in Little Harbour. Source also reports his weather station was eventually blown down.
