At random: "Without courage, you might as well not be in it. You’ve got to have courage--moral courage, physical courage--and honor. Honor means telling the truth even when it might not be to your advantage" Retired Capt. Charles W. Rush Jr. (85), Navy Cross recipient, when asked to give advice to Chiefs and Junior Officers in today's submarine service.

Ive been trying to find out how bad St Augustine got hit and have not had any luck. I know it's above Daytona which got hit pretty bad. My cousin lives in St.A. and I haven't heard from him yet...

Joe, Jacksonville is having surge flooding this morning. St. Augustine is likely having similar issues as it's close to Jax. Also believe their power may be out which is not good to recharge your cell phones. I'm sure they're fine but will wait until the storm is over.

Hi folks

I live in St Augustine, south of the old town. The rain and wind started hot and heavy about 8PM (2000) last night but pretty much cleared off by 10AM (1000) this morning. Power was restored to much of the area by 6PM (1800). Downtown flooded as expected but early reports were that there was not a whole lot of wind damage. St Augustine South area had many downed large trees, storm surge flooding along the intracoastal and some roof/boat/car/fence damage. Likewise St Augustine Shores took a hit with regard to trees and some roof damage.

North of the city, the Vilano Beach area was hard hit on the ocean side. The north side of the town from Rt1 to the intracoastal had some flooding but looks like it was not as bad as with Matthew last year. The bridges to Anastasia Island to Vilano Beach, on Rt312 and Rt206 are closed until engineers can inspect so reports of damage on the St Augustine Beach, Butler Beach and Crescent Beach are heresay either not much or bad damage depending on who is doing the saying. We will know more tomorrow. The south end of St Johns county took a hit along the beaches down toward Palm Coast.

The center of Matthew was a Cat One and about 50 miles east. Irma was a Cat one/two about 70 miles to the west.

Bottom line. Damage is spotty, one dead (heart attack down by Palm Coast), but all in all we were lucky. I say that being in a house that has power, food and A/C and no damage. If you are in a house with roof damage, or flooded or without amenities then -- not so lucky. Folks are helping folks and the first responders/sheriff/Guard/ and State Police are out and doing a good job.

Anywhere in particular in town you are wanting information about?

Be Well

There is a photo being published of a house in Vilano Beach that has collapsed down onto the beach. That house was nearly washed into that condition during Matthew last year, has been abandoned and not repaired/stabilized since. If you are going to show beach damaged homes that is a good one. However without context it conveys the feeling that many homes are like that. Not so. According to the folks I have talked to, maybe one or two houses like that in the 25 miles of beachfront, not more.

Be Well

I saw that photo of the house "near Jacksonville" which the news guy said "it was almost swallowed up by the ocean". OOPs - wrong storm
