Some of our members were in the path of hurricane Dorian. I know of Helen, Anne and Edie to name a few.
Anyone else was in the path? Are you ok? Let us know as we really care for you. And if you have some photos to share, don’t hesitate.September 10, 2019 at 11:42 pm #34354EdieParticipant
Yes we are safe there was little damage where I live in Halifax we lost power for a day and internet for 2 day, my landline phone is still out but the peninsular Halifax suffered a lot of downed trees and building damage as well as surge damage on the waterfront. The storm covered the whole province so many still don’t have power or phone service. The loss of phone service was a new one as before Bell Aliant landlines never seem to go down during a storm it seem new technology isn’t as reliable as the old in times like these. Our Koodo cell service went down for the night but came back the next day. The farmers in the valley took a bad hit as the apple crop was at its peak and from what I hear the corn corp may be wiped out too. The storm surge also did quite a number on our coastal towns and villages as well.September 12, 2019 at 1:05 am #34375Susan CaronParticipant
We live in Florida near Orlando. Luckily all we got was some wind and rain. The eye of the storm stayed far enough off shore to spare us the worst of it.September 12, 2019 at 6:32 am #34381Annie TobinParticipant
Edie, sorry to hear of the damage done to your province. I have been through several hurricanes (cyclones here in Australia) so I understand how destructive and fearful they can be. It is bad for the farmers who have lost their crops as that is their livelihood. Mother Nature is definitely at times a force to be reckoned with. Firestorms are raging along our Queensland coast at the moment and so many have lost their homes. To date, lives have been spared except for the wildlife which is heartbreaking. Take good care Edie and my thoughts are with your province and for all those affected by Dorian.September 12, 2019 at 8:40 am #34384anne velemirovichParticipant
We are fine here in Halifax, amongst the lucky ones. Lost power for about 12 hours, no damage in the garden other than the petunias who really got battered down. A lot of farmers have had damage to their crops, corn flattening, apples off the trees and trees down. One apple farmer says they will be making a lot of vinegar instead of selling fresh fruit. The best news is no fatalities nor injuries in news reports.September 12, 2019 at 7:00 pm #34389CasselKeymaster
Glad to hear everyone here is safe. I am looking at the map and there is another disturbance forming south of the Bahamas. Hopefully, it won’t hit Florida hard.
