Heard stations on all 7 WX frequencies yesterday morning and this morning, lots of mentions of Hurricane and Tropical Storm conditions, especially when listening to the stations covering coastal Virginia and North Carolina.  Noticed that 162.450 MHz was really messy at one point, generally KZZ28 is the clear winner but at points it was almost a pure hetrodyne.  WNG586 on 162.500 MHz out of Henderson, NC was nearly full quieting in my receive as well.

Is the flooding/storm surge from Dorian bad down there?

The band was dead this morning.  Nothing on 162.400 or 162.550 even.

No flooding yet  1200 ut.
We are behind dunes , never have seen them breached. There are 60 year old trees in the neighborhood, so no saltwater has been over them in awhile.
The big worry is rain. It's flat and water doesn't run out past a certain rate.  Right much wind now but no issues so far

Hope you weren’t too badly hit after all is said and done (with that storm anyway).

The band has been kind of meh lately, although I did catch KHB36 and KHB37 mixing together almost perfectly yesterday morning on 162.550 MHz.
