So far over 7 inches of rain. This is my creek in my backyard. This is the highest I have ever seen it. It took my bridge out. Photo below is average for the creek (west branch of the Papackating)

Myself, and a three of my good storm chaser friends from the Lower Hudson Valley and Toronto, Canada documented Irene's land fall in Broad Channel, Oceanside and Long Beach. The storm surge was terrible in Broad Channel and I have several friends who live there that had to deal with some really serious flooding issues. We stopped into visit the day prior to land fall to fill them in on what to expect. Many residents stayed for the storm. Thankfully I haven't heard of any injuries, but my friend who lives there did say that two homes collapsed into the bay!

Here are a few pictures from Irene's land fall. Two of the storm surge inundating Broad Channel, and one picture of a tree coming down on a power transformer right on the main street.

I'll be posting a highlights video later today and will post the link here when it's up.

After documenting in Broad Channel, we traveled down the Belt Pkwy to Oceanside, and then finally Long Beach where we encountered more serious flooding. Overall that was definitely the biggest threat from Irene in our area. All though one of my neighbors did have his mobile home demolished when a big oak tree fell on it while he had it parked on Woodhaven Blvd. Thankfully, no one was inside at the time!
