I live right near the water about 30 miles south of Atlantic City. It was a scary few days, but luckily we had no damage. I live on the highest piece of ground for miles around, so there was no flooding, although we were briefly an island. When I had my house built about 10 years ago, I had the architect upgrade everything to be hurricane rated and it sure paid off. My ridge beam is a 6x10 paralam and the house didn't make a sound, even in 80 mph winds. Lots of damage around me though. Waiting for all of the debris to thoroughly dry before I go out there with the leaf blower.
