Storm Damage

On 6/10/2008 a storm went through Sandy Creek, NY and winds at Greene Point were clocked at 109 MPH. We got off very lucky with a broken window, a small area on the right side where the siding peeled back and the antenna has been flattened. Our neighbors did not fair as well. There was a lot of damage at the point with a number of trailers tipped over, rooves peeled off and many trees down. The power was out for about 2 days but the water system is the real problem. The trees that were ripped from the ground also ripped the water pipes out. The ELMS lost 75% or more of their trees and they aren't sure when they will reopen for business. The trees at Greene Point look like they were twisted off.

Yikes. Glad to hear the Coomber trailer wasn't hurt too bad. Hope they are able to get the water system up and running before you guys head north.
