    Thanks for your concern Rich, yeah, we are fine.

    We are not located at high grounds, but the house is elevated, so we had a lot of water, but no damage at all. Not just us, the whole area is OK. Thank God.

    Great to hear that John, I was concerned and I am sure others were too!

    Unfortunately the 23 yr old young lady depicted in the video being rescued, is reported to have suffered a heart attack and passed away!

    My wife tells me that you're right about the young lady.
    Too many people miss the silver lining because they're expecting gold.

    No, the lady shown in the pictures being rescued from a small SUV is alive. It is another lady who was trapped in a Smart that got a heart attack and died. Poor girl got so frightened that her heart stopped before being taken to the hospital. Or at least, that's how I understood the news I watched yesterday evening.
