  1. Huge tree down on our neighbors’ lawn – corner of James St. & Park. We think the top branches hit their house but can’t see if there is any damage. Trunk seems to have missed anything major.

  2. The flooding of backyards and basements by Broad and Bay is pretty major. I have a friend whose neighbor’s tree collaposed on her house taking out one entire side of it.

    There are lots of people without power and nine people in five states have been reported killed.
