My mother is with us luckily up here in VA, but she has her house in North Naples. Anyone down there with how it is?

They called with no power and said they were okay, but the rain and wind were very scary at one point. They are good with minor damage to the roof with a shingle or two blown off.
All of the major cable sites...

are saying that the storm surge in Naples, Fort Meyers and most of that area was spectacularly lower than at first anticipated.It was like 4 feet in many places instead of 8-15. Doesn't mean there isn't damage, but the amount of flooding came in way lower than anticipated in that part of the state. The eye came in to the east, instead of at the shore or just off shore, so the area didn't get winds coming onshore from the west, pushing the water, as expected.

Good luck, but I believe there is reason to be hopeful in terms of flooding damage.

Probably won't make it back there till Wednesday at the earliest. I was told it was hairy but the expected surge was much lower than originally expected.
