He posted on an earlier thread -- they are fine but not everyone in their area was so lucky.

Cuda do you have power? I have a nice generator you can use if you need it.

I had a thread on it in the Bilge earlier, but I hear some threads were lost today. Here was my first post to the thread. The rest can be read in the Chicks and Boats thread in the Bilge. I copied what I had posted on the Donzi board.

I woke up at 4 am this morning due to the weather. I've lived in Florida for 39 years, and I've never seen such lightning before. I could hear the roaring like a tornado was headed towards us. If I didn't know better, I would have sworn there was a bombing attack to the east of us. The worst must have just missed us. There was damage both north and south of us. Our power went out just after the worse of it went past us. The storms were moving at 50 to 60 mph, so it was around us long. The news said no serious injuries here in Deland, but about 25 miles east of us, there were 67 homes with severe damage at New Smyrna Beach. Five semis were turned over at I-4 where Hwy 44 crosses it (we live right off Hwy 44). Catch 22's parents live in Lady Lake, near Leesburg, and a tornado ripped through a mobile home park right near their house. There are several confimed deaths there. Jim and Gina are headed there to help them clean up. A friend of Debbie's called and said there were four houses completely torn up near Hontoon Island, which is about four miles from here. It was raining at the rate of 13 inches an hour, but it was moving so fast, it didn't rain too much. Within 20 minutes of the time I woke up, it was only pitter patter rain here.

I guess we must be living at the foot of the cross.

Our power was out for about an hour and a half. I have some friends that live near Hontoon, so I went there to see if they were alright. They were fine other than no power. I offered to lend them my generator, but they are staying with some other friends of our that live on the road right behind us.

These pictures were taken one block from where they live. It's about two mile as the crow flies from our house.
That was as far as they'd let us drive up Hontoon Road. Power lines were down everywhere in that area.
