I live in Mobile and we're safe. We lost a storm door and every inch of our yard is covered with debris, but there is no damage to our home. We don't have power and have been told it could be weeks before we get it back. As miserable and hot as we are, we were very fortunate.
I am actually at work today and am glad to be here because their is power here and daycare had power also, so the girls are better off there than at home.
Most of my husband's family lives in Biloxi and 3 of them are without homes. They are all safe, but have lost everything. It is so eerie around here, there were at least 100 cars waiting to get into a small gas station by my house at 6:45 this morning. They are not even selling gas so everyone was waiting to go in and buy whatever they could. We live off of HWY 98, that goes directly into Mississippi so most of the people that were waiting were from Mississippi and this was the closest store they could get to.
Leslie, I hope you are safe. My heart goes out to everyone in Mississippi and Louisiana.
