    Wow that's just weird. Strong winds - sure... but to just blow down a part of a wall like that? You have to wonder if it was weak to begin with....

    My brother lives in Virginia. At least report, nothing major was going on in his neck of the woods...

    I was more refering to people in the NE US that are immediatley affected by this. I have an Aunt in Wolfville so I have heard about some stuff that hits NS.

    Santiago is on the East cost of Cuba. The hurricane only went over the eastern part. I will be on the West coast.

    I'm loving how fast these shopped images are making their way around the office. I decided to throw my own around..(no I didn't make it)

    I'm surprised her balloons didn't make the wind blow her away.

    I almost got stuck in this mess. I was down in Virginia Beach, changed my flight and flew out last Sunday. People did not seem overly concerned. I know a couple people I was travelling with didn't think it was a big deal, and ended up having their flights cancelled.

    This thing is not living up to its hype... I watched CNN broadcast a ten minute story about a tree that blew down...

    I remember seeing on the news that it wasn't the winds that were the concern, it was the storm surge, which is pretty evident in the pictures posted above. That is a LOT of clean up.

    Don't know if he's being a troll or not, but seriously the pictures look brutal. I even thought maybe officials were exaggerating when they stopped running the subways and evacuated people, but the damage seriously looks way worse than I imagined. This will definitely be a top 5 natural disaster in terms of cost, but it also killed at least 50 people. I couldn't imagine the damage done by SEA WATER flooding the subway system and underground networks and what not. There's going a LOT of copper wire that will need to be dug up and replaced.

    Ok now wait for ZenOps to chime in.

    I am just glad I live in Calgary.
    You have a couple of photos that are great... you must be very good at photoshop!
