    I've been glancing at that every now and then. Just watched a tv reporter standing in beach water up past his knees while waves are hitting high and hard. The guy's not long for this world if common sense doesn't kick in soon.

    That flag is toast, they should have pulled it in before the storm. The shark cam has moved, don't know if that was intentional.

    Headlines this morning of people needing to be rescued from rooftops and from cars stranded in water. Pffftttt...don't risk lives trying to save people with brain cells damaged that badly.

    Yeah. If you plan on toughing it out then expect to tough it out.

    They've got a live broadcast of one of the owners (?) who just started talking about it rather than the live camera looking at the ocean (who knows if that's still there).

    Funny thing is, he says the problem with the cameras right now is the on-shore facility. The wireless link from the tower to shore is operating fine.
