Payers for your families. I am profoundly saddened this morning. The news from SW Florida has not been encouraging.

I tried to call a couple of buddies in the Jacksonville area this morning with do answer. How are things in that area of the state?

If Charley comes back hard into North or South Carolina this will probably go down in history as one of the worst hurricanes!

We were spared 145 mph winds by less than 35 miles. We lost one banana tree and one sliding glass door.

Rob and Tammy, I just pm'ed you back. I printed out your numbers and will keep them with me. I have to run to St. Pete on business, then I will take a drive south, either later today or first thing in morning to try to find out info. 60 fatalities were reported in a trailer park in Punta Gorda. Anyone else who needs help in trying to locate/contact people get hold of me. I'm in Nokomis, 35/50 miles north of these areas. Glad to help out everyone as best I can. Russ

Thanks for asking.

I share in the sadness for those further south. I'm in Altamonte Springs and we have no power. No majore damage in general area

The news now reports TWO additional low pressure areas on the way in the near future

Take care

Anyone who might want help in finding out info my cell # is 941-544-1375.

Just talked with law enforcement and almost all phone service and cell towers in that area are down. They are "sternly" asking for people to stay out of the area until at least tomorrow because of all the downed power lines. They want the Florida Power & Light crews to have unfettered access to roads without have to worry about "lookey loos". They said tomorrow would be better but to check back late this afternoon. Russ
