Hurricane Irene Damage Near Me

South west of me is a stunningly beautiful valley. This is a before shot of the valley, I believe from just last autumn.
And here is the valley after Hurricane Irene.

This is just a mile from my house. Thankfully, I'm up in the hills, so I had no damage, but in some of this footage, a friend of mine lost her house. Buried under water.

HERE is a youtube video of an historic site not too far from me. The water is supposed to be well behind the house. It hit flood stages and just kept going, higher and higher.

It's amazing the difference! Even where my parents live about thirty miles east of us, had so much more rain.
