In the lowest lying areas there are reports of people taking refuge in the attic during the worst of the storm, but the water quickly dropped 4 ft during and after the eye and should be really dropping now. There are reports of water up to the steps of the swimming pool of the Oriental Marina and lots of water in houses on Hodges St. towards the boat ramp. Oriental got 9 feet 6 inches. There are a couple of trees across 55 and windblown water coming across the road from the fields, but that all should clear up as soon as the wind lies down. Either way, we’re not going that direction until daylight tomorrow to see how we can help out.
