I'm on the banks of the Indian River in a condo, right across from Merritt Island, which was evacuated. Our building is like a fortress and came through with only minor nonstructural damage. Lots of tree damage on the grounds, as well as fences and lighting. The riverfront boardwalk sustained significant damage, and the boat docks are a total loss. A few units had breaches of their hurricane shutters, but ours held tight.
Water came back yesterday. we are still without power, cable and internet with no projected return to service. I'm hanging on with solar panels and a battery bank on my south facing balcony, and internet is courtesy of Verizon Wireless, which is offering customers free unlimited data through Friday. I re-activated my dormant Jetpack prior to the storm.
I am providing cell phone and ipad charging for the neighbors.
Those who have been out report that a few gas stations and other businesses are starting to reopen.
All in all, we are inconvenienced but so much more fortunate than some.
