Which one? It didn't even really start yet for most people. I think the worst of the storm has barely made landfall so far.

Thanks for the updates Krishna, ill be sure to never leave my home ever again.

But in all honesty dc area has had it very easy so far, most of my friends and myself are still with power and when i look outside i dont see anything that would make me think its worst than a normal thunderstorm. Yet everything in the area is closed for tomorrow.

Storm is picking up speed, so it's going to be through the area faster than expected. Virginia side has had it easier than Maryland. Burnt Mills Dam might be overflowing, a big chunk of US-29 is closed because of high water on the Northwest Branch Bridge.

pretty sure it's started to slow down once it hit landfall

Delaware river is starting to flood along Tacony

No, it went from 14mph up to 28. It's still over 20mph now.

It just made landfall about 30 mins ago.. If it's dropped from 28 mph, that would mean it's slowing down

It picked up speed to begin with when it wasn't supposed to. It was expected to stay under 20 mph. My point is that it's going through the area faster than expected. Slowing down from "Much faster" to "faster" means it's still going faster.

Some of these gusts sound like a freight train....my electricity keeps flickering...hope the electric stays on. Parents in Bucks County have no electricity but that is common..a summer breeze knocks it out. Their lines suck and are above ground...dad constantly gambles by not buying a stupid generator. Heck I may get one now. Luckily not winter yet...

Sorry if this is a repost...

This happened yesterday while we were lifting our fishing yacht out of the water in Longport NJ...

Some hero thought he could take his boat out.

I went all cash on Friday for a brokerage transfer... turns out that might have been a blessing. Insurance companies are going to fall out when we reopen... energy should go up.
