We have heard that My in-laws are ok The roof was damaged and the pool enclosure and yard shed are gone.The neice loaded up the kids and headed to Venice just before it hit.We have not heard from My wifes sister that lived in the Trailer in Punta Gorda. Her Daughter did how ever confirm that she also left the trailer to seek shelter at someones house.

Rags just called Hugetime. He's fine with no damage to his houses or his boat. He's headed to Ft Lauderdale because they have no power, and aren't expecting power back on until mid week.

Iam still trying to get in touch with my brother and his family
They live in Bradenton. Anyone know the condition of this area?
I know him and his wife went to Sturgic, but not sure when they were returning. Kids went to Jacksonville
Their home phone still does pick up[ messages, but I do not know if its tape machine or phone company voice mail

Bradenton was largely unaffected.

Rob I am glad to hear that your family is OK, I have been thinking about them all day.
Thanks for letting us know. Glad to here Hugetime didn't loose anything either since he just moved down there.

I have friends in Bradenton who have indicated that they only got rain and some strong winds......not a whole lot of damage to that area from what I can tell.

Thank goodness it sounds as if nothing but property was lost to most folks. That in itself is a blessing.

Add me to the list of southwest FL residents willing to help out by going to find friends and family who have not been reachable during this powerful storm.

Storm update-

got back to our house in Sarasota. No damage. THANK GOD! Evacuated family to Orlando. STorm did heavy damage there last night. Left in AM, traffic HEAVY. No gas available for miles. I-4 jammed for hours. Everyone running out of gas and searching for bathrooms. Restaurants and stops had no gas or power. Heavy rain storms on I-4. Port Charlotte, Northport, Punta Gorda, Venice - Heavy Damage. Talked to Hugetime before and after storm. He is in Ft Lauderdale and has no power. We invited him and his girlfriend to stay with us. Devastating storm!

We never had anything like this in Philly!
