I replied no, but a family member was.

My brother (62 yrs old) lost power to his house because a tree fell and broke the power lines in his area, but no damage.

My father (92 yrs old) who lives only 10 miles north of my brother didn't have power outage or damage.

The area where they live was on the very northern tip of the edge of the hurricane.

They live north of Orlando where the center of the hurricane passed south of Orlando.

FWIW

Darn I left out an ‘s’.  We also have family who lost some trees and a part of a yard but their house was surprisingly unharmed.

In VA, we just got rain and a little bit of breeziness.   My husband has a friend in FL who lost pretty much everything - except their boat - but it's not big enough for their family to live on.  :^ (

You were lucky. That is so sad for your friends.

Apparently the hurricane is smarter than Harris because it was able to miss rich white neighborhoods and only hit the poor minority communities. She said the hurricane hit those groups the hardest. What she meant was that it’s harder for someone poor to recover quickly. Why can’t she just say what she means?

LOL... but the answer is she's a mean racist who only knows how to lie!

They want equity of outcome, so they believe that people of color need help more than anyone else. It’s true that a poor person who is displaced has fewer options than someone with alternative housing available. But white people can be poor. Asians can be poor.  The best outcome would be achieved by helping anyone whose home was lost or is uninhabitable.

I cant believe she said that. I'm originally from Beaufort SC and have many friends there and they were lucky it veered just north of them.

Kamala Harris needs to read this book that came out in 2015. It proves she's a racist Democrat:
