spoke too soon. Major breach in a damn north of us!

We want to just tell you that we are NOT on a river front and we're on high ground. But this is what we were talking about. Even though a storm seems like it's not a big deal and it's gone, flash flooding occurs all the time hours even days afterwards. Right now there is a damn in Camden NH that has breached and they are insanely trying to get senior citizens out of a nursing home right in the path of this raging river and I can tell you that river rages on a normal day. This is bad news. People have died around that river many times before.

AND what goes up must come down. NH is all full of hills and valleys and any rain that comes down at flood speed up north from us comes down all the rivers and reaches us hours away down south. We just had a flood warning for the river near my house which again, we're not on that riverbank and we're much higher up. Thank god!

I fear loss of life here. Several houses are already under water and some people are trapped in a trailer. Also, it appears some of these very old damns were actually damaged from the earthquake that was centered all the way in Virginia and one we got back in May that was 3.5. I felt that one, believe me. I know it sounds small but granite is solid and that's hard to move.

Please purr hard for the animals and people in this raging river's path. I don't know anyone, (I don't think) but either way, I do not want to see this again.

Again, we are FINE. But so many others are in peril at this moment.

Hugs, Lacey

and that's only one part of it. These are several rivers that merge together and when they flood, they flood in a matter of minutes, if not seconds. Lots of evacuations are going on along that river right now.

At about 5:30 there was a storm-related death east of us. That makes two, and it's from trees falling.

Everybody, please, please be aware of your surroundings. This guy heard a cracking sound, but only had seconds, and pushed his son out of the way.

Tink, 2 critical injuries here in NH from trees falling on them because they decided to go out and explore right after the storm seemed like it was over.

OMC! If not one thing than another...we have refueled our purr engines and we can run them in high gear now...and we are!
PURRRRRRRS!
Hopefur-ly no deaths. Those videos are scary stuff.
Our weather here in southwestern MI has been so beautifur that it is hard to believe that this is going on over to the east.
What a mess!
Purred by: Lacey (Catster Member)

August 29th 2011 at 1:13 am

Thanks Sam, Zoe & WeBees! I guess many houses have gotten washed down the river but I think they evacuated everyone in time. Still, that's so horrible. We're looking at the weather channel though and omc there is SO much flooding going on everywhere from this hurricane! BAD flooding! North Carolina all the way up here.

Lacey, not to seem stuck in my own state cause I worry about everyone but have you seen the pics of the roads on our outerbanks? They have been washed away in five places. you can't even get out there without a boat!

August 29th 2011 at 1:23 am

Yeah! That's what I just said! LOL. I said I've been looking at the news and see all the damage and bad flooding all over from North Carolina up to here. LOLOL.

It is amazing the force behind the flood waters. To sweep away homes and roads and bridges. The power it has is sure frightening. We are purring for all those affected up and down the coast.
Purred by: Lacey (Catster Member)

August 30th 2011 at 3:35 pm

We're all okay guys! No flooding down here, it didn't reach. But it's furry, furry bad up north. Vermont got it the worst!
