I would have to say, that it's not an exaggeration that almost every pine in the neighborhood is down. Just today I counted 22 on my way to work, and that's just in my neighborhood. It seemed as I drove further in there wasn't much damage. You can drive down the street and it's EVERY OTHER HOUSE with a tree uprooted. Some trees are lying on the houses, fences, or in the yard. That doesn't even count how every single fence has a gaping hole in it or no fence at all. Power has been flickering on and off and shingles are gone.
I drove by the church park, and there were 13 Big Pines on their side. It was like a graveyard. Really does break your heart. The devastation in just our little neighborhood seems so extreme, I can't even imagine what a real hurricane is like.
I hear Centerville is a complete mess and a state emergency area, some cities don't have any power and could be off up to 4 days.
It's just CRAZY.
I almost cried when I saw our tree.
Rest in Peace.
This was just around my block.
