No power here wind absolutely roared way worse then Sandy or Irene... trees down everywhere.... this one lived up to the hype

Absolutely. If this is what a mid-range tropical storm can do, I don't want to think about a cat 2 or 3.

ORH gusted back up to 44 knots last update. Still pretty underwhelming for them though. Let’s see if they can rip a 50-55er before the stinger is gone.

Did it go through E MA yet?

Another branch off the hickory about 4 inch diameter maybe 8 feet long full of nuts hit my house since I posted , probably 125 feet from the tree to my house. Crazy, genny running. Not a fan of this.

This is unreal. We have moved to the middle of fhe house. Our living/sun room is getting pelted with branches and had a limb just miss the side of the house. I don't know if it is our exposure on this hill or what. Last hour has been better than Irene was in RI for me.

Forecast for Hurricane Isaias was very good. Final Call on Saturday night was for landfall near Oak Island, NC on early Tuesday AM with max sustained winds between 75-90MPH. Landfall was at Oak Island, NC with max sustained winds of 85MPH. Only hitch was that it was just BEFORE midnight on Monday night, thus it was not early Tuesday, but rather late Monday evening.
Better luck next time.

Lord have mercy. Ripped 65+ for about 90 mins in pulses. Worse than Irene here 

Irene was worse here but this is close. Chainsaws ripping everywhere. I had power right up to the last unbelievable gust. Stronger than the April gust. Thank god for droughtstein, can not imagine if we were saturated.

No power, no phone, no internet.  I was smart and called Verizon this morning figuring this would happen and changed temporary to a daily unlimited data so using phone as hotspot.

 25% of the NH Coop does not have power and backside winds are just arriving.  Lots of gusts into the 30's but peak wind so far 42mph

 This is not going to be a quick power outage.

The Lexington - Burlington mass area had about the effects of a winter cold front . Better than not having power thou . Wishing those a speedy power restoration.

Congrats man. You wanted this and called it. Hopefully you bring down a few more. 

Sounds like it was a total dud back home. Not expecting much up here Maine either.

I'd say the feb/March wind storm in early 2020 was a lot more impressive. No leaves though. 

Early April event was taking off my roof. But this was good. At least locally. Was convective so some areas did well and others no. Last October was way worse. We moved our kids from their bedrooms. Sounds like PYM county did well.

2 hour burst of 40-50mph gusts with some limbs down..but I feel like this happens several times a year so meh. I mean, I'll take it but nothing too impressive.

March 1st 2018 and the storm earlier this spring were gustier

2 different trees down in Waterbury Center VT

It has gotten real windy in the past hour or so in Stowe.  Really don’t want to lose power.  Gusts to 40mph seems to be where we start to lose power from the damn white pines on Cady Hill.  

A bit over 1.5” of rain, will probably be close to the modeled 2” of rainfall most models showed here.

You got an anemometer on that Davis?

Man, prolonged 65+ it must look like a war zone, especially those gypsy weakened trees!

Oh wow!   Outside of the additional .75” of rain that we didn’t need, it’s been pretty much a nonevent in Greenfield. 
Getting a little bit gusty right now though. Patches of blue sky breaking out.

maybe 0.2 inches here, not enough

Springfield?

Yeah, downtown across the park from Tower Square, both windows faced southwest.  Here is the conference room window, on the floor:

We also lost a window in a cubicle that was occupied earlier in the day.  I had encouraged staff in the office to work from home in the afternoon, I was about to go home and we had a power surge that knocked out the server so I was dealing with getting it rebooted so everyone could keep working remotely, and all hell broke loose, well maybe not all hell, but two windows anyway.

Just took a very nasty ride from Enfield through Longmeadow  MA to my parents house on the border on the border with Springfield.  Multiple detours , numerous trees and branches down, several trees hanging over wires, a couple wires on fire,  debris falling on the car definitely adrenaline-pumping.
