    Dont really know the MW but I did some work there when I used to be a crane op. Four turbine units, two big medium speed Colt-Peilstick 18cyl black starts, and several high speed diesel units. I want to say 12 million gallons of fuel onsite. Enough to run for ten days at full load.

    Just spent extracting water from one of my schools for 10 hours today, 75 rooms flooded water was 2-1/2 inches in some spots, I will be working on this one into the weekend out of the 35 schools I run this one was the worst others were just a little water here and there, superintendent is hoping to have them open Monday, gonna be a long week. I'm tired but at least I have air and power at my house tonight.

    The good news is my stv has reportedly made it through the eye of a Cat4 hurricane without damage. I'm sure only time it'll ever see 130mph lol.

    We made it to mile marker 24 Monday night and set up a command center at the sea base boys club. Search the Big Pine island and surrounding island's. Spoke to a handful of people who road it out. Some crazy stories of survival. We are being shipped back to Orlando tomorrow evening and flying home Saturday. If I can help check on family, friends or homes before we leave please let me know. Got cell service back late last night. AT&T. 714 745-7078. Keith

    Just got to NY for a wedding ,

    The eye hit us dead center , east Naples , over 1/2 hour in the eye , heck I thought it was all over... then the back hit us , nothing like the front of the storm, old Naples is a mess, monster trees down everywhere, we got the worst of the storm, in our area.

    Lost 20 trees on my 2.5 Ac. still with out power , be a few more , have to get a lot of 60 ft. trees off the power lines first , flood below...

    Sure hope the power is back on for my Monday return, the generator I'm using will run everything but the AIR.

    Nothing like trying to sleep in 90 degree heat, my generator blew up first hour ... so a friend let me use one he could not get running , got it running but it's weak, better than nothing...
