Irma Update - Sept 11 7am
Posted on Sep 11th, 2017

Report from Ted Benjamin:
Hi everyone - I hope I am not pre-mature but we are getting reports that Irma has lessened in strength and shifted NE. It is just about past Ft. Myers. Wind is substantially down.

The only question is about surge. I think, from what we have heard, that the NE shift will help reduce surge. The further west the storm was, the bigger surge. Surges were predicted to be 9 - 15' originally. Now reduced to 6 - 10' - I think.

There has been some reports of water intrusion by various people. Nothing major that I know of.

I haven't been outside to survey the property - tomorrow in the am - follow-up report.

This is Mastique Man Meteorologist signing off for the evening!

Power still off.

Could not post - Led Edwards is posting my texts. Will send photos after sun is up and I can get out.

Don and I have put our small generator outside front doors - M1. Available to anyone in either building who would like to charge their cell phones. Turn generator on/off switch to up position and pull handle. If it does not, choke switch is on top of the unit to get it started. Once it runs, turn choke off. When finished using generator, please turn it off as only 8 hrs. worth of gas in tank.
