Bambi, an answer to your question on theysaid.

Ab, Bambi, and others,

In regard to the hurricane and what it did to my area; it was pretty minor damage. Winds peaked out at only 50 mph. Fortunately my general region is a pine ecosystem, so not too many trees went down and the storm sped up so not much in the way of flooding. However, where brush 6 would be; Duck (it’s a real place…a really nice coastal town) and anywhere along the outer banks from Atlantic City north got hammered pretty bad (north east part of the state). I would say that Va. got hit worse then my hometown did. If you are curious about anything this news site is pretty good: www.wral.com

And just for giggles, station 11 in my city got dispatched to a grass fire during the hurricane. Go figure.
