We lost power at 7:30AM this morning.
We are safe, so far.
Our yard is littered with limbs and the wind is still gusting well over 40MPH. A few trees have been snapped at their tops in our side yard.
The gusts of wind outside really do sound similar to a freight train roaring down its tracks. I stepped outside, a few minutes ago, and the wind forced me back inside.
Downtown Mobile has 8-10 feet of water standing in the streets and flooding some buildings. The storm surge was estimated at 22 feet.
Luckily our power is restored temporarily. I hear the sounds of generators in the distance.
I’m going offline again as the electrical power continues to flicker.
