Irene's aftermath

Here are some photos i took with my cell phone visiting a family friend by the beach in Milford, CT.  Lucky for a friend they were on the calmer shore and only saw minimal damage, however as you can see above others were not as lucky.  The first two pictures clearly show that these homes were devastated, whole fronts of homes torn off into the sound.  With the flooding in Vermont, the coastal damage in Connecticut, tornadoes in the Joplin and Tuscaloosa earlier this year, wild fires and the possibility of extreme flooding along the gulf coast in the coming days FEMA and Red Cross are being stretched thin! 
Here are some ways you can help!
American Red Cross  donate or volunteer some time!
and don't forget the pets! The Humane Society
