More pictures to come... Here are a few...

This is the end of my street looking to the left. And the cause of our power outage..



Golf Course in New Haven, flag ripped in half..



This is the street my sister's mom and step dad live on, look way in the distance, blue house is leaning, a few were completely destroyed, some where actually FLOATING and so much has been lost to the long island sound..



Close up..



In that area^^people were actually looting despite the massive police presence.
Trees down like every 50 feet, tons of power lines down... My power went back on while we were driving around....


Added: That blue house is officially SLIDING INTO the ocean!
The nutty part is, when we go to the fireworks, we sit RIGHT NEXT to that house!!!

We're home, we avoided all roads w/ water and went around areas w/ power lines down instead of "driving around them". Heck, Tom wouldn't even go down streets where their were trees with lots of branches, which is practically everywhere lol. I'm glad I'm home, with power, and my family is all safe. Things are really bad on the coast here, piers were literally crumbled. I may be over reacting, but I've *never* seen damages like this over such a large spread area...

Dispatches from East Haven on Hurricane Irene - East Haven, CT Patch

This is about 7-8 miles from me, and I know too many people who either live down here or who have family down here... The blue house in my pics is in the slideshow.

Man... hurricanes are scary! I've lived in Florida twice, once as a child, and once as an adult, and both times hurricanes hit while I was there. Terrifying! I would rather go through 100 Michigan winters than one more hurricane!

Wow Nicole. Glad you are safe.

I feel so bad for those people that lost their houses.

We got some rain and some flooding but nothing like that.

Rachel, I was looking into your area, lol. The state will have more flooding today, the CT river is supposed to crest at high tide.

There is a video on my FB Wall a former classmate of mine put together, if you'd like to see:
Or go to this group and scroll down and look for the post made my D.J. Hops that says, "A QUICK SLIDESHOW I THREW TOGETHER WITH AUDIO CLIPS I EDITED TOGETHER AND ADDED SOUND EFFECTS TO WITH BACKGROUND MUSIC ALSO MADE BY ME.....PHOTOS FROM MULTIPLE SOURCES"

It has actual clips from the police scanners from Sat/Sun.

you can view it that way as well, linking straight to the vid isn't working... but anyone should be able to view it this way....
