We Are Safe!

October 9th, 2016 at 07:05 am

Just a quick update on Matthew and some quick facts:

We live in the southwestern side of Jacksonville, Florida (Duval County) and in Evacuation Zone D - the SAFEST area!

No flooding and no loss of power or cable tv in our neighborhood.

Some trees downed from the roots. At my house and my parents and uncle's house, only some small branches.

Evacuations mandatory for zones A, B and C.

The beaches area was zone A and we lost our pier which was rebuilt after Hurricane Floyd. The dunes are completely wiped out. Part of A1A south (highway along the beach) of us in Flagler was torn apart and is unpassable.

Our family and neighbors were very blessed and fortunate and I have prayers of gratitude.

Many many others are devastated and I pray for their quick recovery.

Thanks everyone for your thoughts during this very stressful time!

    Thank you for the update. Glad you and loved ones are safe. It's nearly impossible to know what a hurricane will do and what number should be assigned as it heads to land.

    Glad to hear you are safe. My son is in Gainesville, and he said Hermine was stronger than Matthew in his area.
