I live near the coast in North Carolina, we have been hit several times and in 99 flooded very badly.
I remember Floyd quite well. It caused significant flooding, and several people who I know homes were flooded. The shingles flew off the building were I live and scratched my car up pretty badly. That was nothing for me to complain about though compared to other people's losses. The police actually knocked on my door for that one saying the evacuation was mandatory. Dumb me stayed anyway. A few years earlier a tree fell on my truck during a hurricane.
I've been on cruises and re-routed for storms a couple of times. It worked out fine. I can't say the same for people who parked their cars at the Galveston cruise port last year.
What worries me is, every 10 years ending in 9 we get a bad one for some reason on the east coast. Hugo 89, Floyd 99.
Dave, it does look like you will be on the rain side if Claudette stays on that course. It seems odd these would all pop up literally within hours of each other.
