I live up on a hill 270 ft above and about 2.5 miles from the Atlantic Ocean. From the corner of my street we have the most amazing view of Fire Island and the ocean.
I am accustomed to looking out and seeing all the houses that dot Fire Island. I walked to the corner this morning and looked and there was nothing. No houses, and even no discernible Fire Island.
The devastation appears massive. Please pray for all those down by the shore, for those who didn't leave and for those who have lost everything.
