Melanie 07/01/12 01:27 pm I was one of the lucky ones - while we had power flicks it always came right back and has stayed on. It was about 50/50 if you were going to have power or not. Our local power company is saying "the backbone of our electric distribution system, 33 kilovolt (kV) power lines, which supply power to substations, sustained significant damage. Those lines must be repaired or replaced before any of the equipment downstream can be repaired"

Some people are being told they won't be back up until the end of the week.

The webcams at Jug Bay were already down by the time the storm hit there. I have no way of knowing if Greg took it down in anticipation or if the storm beat him to it. The storm went over Jug Bay less than 15 minutes before it reached me. However, I was able to watch the webcam in Chestertown during storm and it was alarming. (It took the storm another 15 minutes to reach Chestertown). That nest was getting rocked pretty badly. Many of the sticks got blown away and the nest looks pretty flattened right now. Mom, though, held on for all she was worth, often reacting to the lightning which was pretty fierce, and the chick was directly under her at all times which kept her from being able to hunker down in the nest better.

The happy news is twofold: The storm (called a derecho) passed through in about 15 minutes so for all it's violence and destruction was very short lived, and secondly, Mom, the chick AND the webcam all survived.
Trishrg 07/01/12 08:07 pm What a bad start to the holiday weekend. I'm glad it wasn't worse, and the nest wasn't damaged any more.
Stay safe, I know the heat there is all over our news here on the west coast.
Anne-UK1 07/02/12 03:17 am Wow. I heard on the radio this morning there had been bad storms. Glad to hear that one nest survived okay, hope it's the same for others.

What a crazy year.
