Hurricane Irene has made landfall. She has been downgraded to a Cat. 1!!

Suffolk, Va: I awoke at 5am to find her here. Rain and strong winds. Wind has reached in excess of 50 mph so far. We still have power so far. A reported tornado struck the Sandbridge beach area of Virginia Beach. 3 houses have lost their roofs. 2 water rescues so far. First, a man, woman and cat were rescued from a sailboat in the Bay near Norfolk. Second, a car was spotted in the water near Yorktown. No details yet on that rescue.

East Coasters.. How are you???
