The winds are still pounding us in St. Augustine. Not as bad as yesterday but still blowing hard. Lost
3 boats so far. 64 ft 100 year old wooden boat landed on Vilano beach. It broke apart due to the surf. Yesterday, 2 other sailboats broke loose dragging their anchor
and hit the temporary bridge just north of the Bridge of Lions. I do not know how many anchors each boat had out. Never anchor
north of the Bridge of Lions when a noreaster is expected. So far I have collected approximately 8 inches of rain in the old gauge. The tide yesterday was about 3 feet above normal here in Crescent Beach. When the wind
lets up I have to reposition the bow line to be ready for the expected south westerly winds. The winds hve move from the northeast to the east and now are coming from the south east. The radar
shows the rain bands coming from the south.
