Had a tree on my neighbor's property come down on the corner of the house and crush my covered back porch. Can't tell all of the damage at this point but I do know it destroyed a table and have some shingles knocked loose. No structural damage to the house that I can see, but I haven't done a detailed inspection.

Stay safe! Hopefully you have a good neighbor because, technically, that damage is probably your responsibility.

Yeah it is.

He's going to hire the tree service and pay half of our deductible. I would cut it but it's partially on the house. I got skills....but that's out of my league.

Unfortunately, you'll more than likely still have higher premiums going forward due to filing a claim. At least your neighbor is doing something to help out. Although I may have pushed for him/her paying the full deductible.

An alt-left reporter just asked Huckabee-Sanders if the recent hurricanes have changed President Trump's opinion on global warming, err.. climate change.

Why when it's an event that flies in the face of climate change, that's just written off as "weather", but when a couple hurricanes hit back to back (even though major hurricanes are becoming less and less frequent), that's confirmation for man-made climate change?

These reporters are the types of suckers that will walk by a roulette table and see that it's hit black the past 5 times, and either bet everything on red because "it's due" or black because "it's hot". They need to dump everything they *learned* while earning their bachelor of art degrees, and read this book.

There is a reason it is called Hurricane season, it would abnormal or climate change to not have hurricanes.

A 75 ft tree 10 ft from our house fell, but fortunately fell parallel. Our neighbors lost the top third of another big tree. Its blocking their driveway. Heard a crash louder than either of those somewhere in the back, but naturally haven't gone back to investigate. There are other limbs and trees that might come down. Fair amount of power outages in the general area.

We were fortunate-so far. Power flickered a dozen times or so, but didn't stay out. Very dark to the east in Atlanta last night. Power seems to be out starting with our neighbor continuing down in that direction. That big tree took out their power line. We lost a big one in the back, but it fell away from the house. Mainly lots of debris in the yard.

Schools will be closed in my Atlanta area district for the 4th day tomorrow with over 30 schools still without power. Georgia Power is estimating 95% of homes will have power restored--by Sunday night. Still streets closed and power lines down near me. Lots of stop lights out.

The Virgin Islands got it bad. This story is on St. John's.

8 deaths (so far) in a Florida nursing home that is without power. Kind of reminds me of Ike (when a bus evacuating folks from a nursing home caught fire). Florida's power grid seems as bad as Texas' grid.
