    I guess the news section of the forum doesn't get attention

    This weekend (Sat) was crazy busy with people bustling, then today not so much. The rain is minimal so far, the winds hit and miss........ hit high gusts miss being the steady flow. It's only Sunday but in the next 24 hours I suspect we will see much, much more. I have seen some crazy pics of the pier already getting rocked and waves just crashing over the inlet jetty. Went down today to take a visual of the town and surprised how few places boarded up. Got a video of the trip (gopro on vehicle roof) and will make a compilation of the entire event. Quick observations; during low tide back bays are flooded, south of Division Street was closed, many news and weather people in town.

    Those in town stay safe, the water and surge are of most concern.

    Those are all in Fenwick, speaking of which............. Most retarded quote was Sea Shell City "Bye Bye Sandy we want Candy" or something to that affect. Silly.

    Sandy

    That mandatory evacuation was issued by the County rather than the town of OC. Rain and winds are very heavy right now and the ocean has breached the seawall is several places and is going over the boardwalk. All downtown streets are flooded. The pier is collapsing.

    WTOP is reporting "major damage" to the pier on OC. I've not yet managed to load a web cam with the pier in view.

    The pier is 1/2 gone, MIA, with 3 or 4 pilings sticking out of the water.

    Waves are crashing over the seawall right now too. Worse will be sometime tonight, between 6 and 9.
