Dismal Swamp to Elizabeth City

Has anyone been thru the Dismal Swamp to Elizabeth City since huricane Irene has come thru? I was wondering on the condition/cleanup of this area.

I called the swamp center this morning and they said there were no reported problems. We're going through in the morning.

Just came through. Mostly no problems, but keep a sharp watch because there are a few logs to the sides that could cause problems.

Came through 10 days ago, plenty of water, but more than usual logs (watch for pungi stakes sticking up from the mud) in both the canal and the river down to EC.
