I think we can keep this here in the Identity forum for now, later I can move it to the Off Topic.

Picture taken earlier near LA/MS state line near Gulf. Only a few gulls flying, winds gusting to 40+ mph. I am standing on my dock in thigh deet water, tide at 6+ feet, expected to go to 10 - 12 feet. I just wanted to pass on to the group todays status. The floor of my home is at 17 feet above sea level. Expect to be OK. Still have power.
Sounds scary. Stay dry and take care!

Big storms like Irene and Isaac carry birds a LONG distance!

Please post as soon as you are able, and better still if things are good for you, and with more photos.

Isaac supposedly "missed" south florida... but we had 50-60mph winds and over 10inches of rain (over 15 inches in some areas) Sunday - Monday as the outer bands moved through the eastern part of florida while the eye was in the Gulf of Mexico.
There are still parts of the county that are flooded and people trapped in their homes (we are not, thank goodness ;-)
Last week was a real mixture of emotions, preparing for the storm (when it was projected to be heading directly our way), to being relieved when it was not headed our way, to being shocked at the impact we experienced from it when it was still so far away!
If this storm had this much impact here, when it was so far away, my thoughts and prayers are with all those who are in it's path.
The good news: there have been reports of Bridled Terns, Sooty Terns and Brown Noddys at the intracoastal waterway !

We the birding community are watching from a distance, seeing our fellow denizens living through some of nature's power. I/We empathize.
