SIA Newsletter 8/28/11 - Irene Impact on Strathmere

To All Strathmere and Whale Beach Homeowners and Visitors,

Pasted below are messages from Dick Omrod passing on information from Fire Chief Bruce Riordan and others who remained at the Firehouse through the storm.
Sounds good!
We are using a borrowed computer and not able to be very "clever" with this Newsletter....

Final Irene Report
Irene passed through in the early morning with minimum or no real damage. Some beach erosion and the electric remained on. We lucked out!

The Chief reported the roads to the island are open but the main arteries to the shore remain closed at this time. Be certain to fill up with gas as most of the stations near the shore are either closed or out of gas.
