Shell Beach, Hopedale updates?
I saw Campos posted a few pics on Facebook yesterday and was (mostly) still there. Any other pics or word from social media? Word has been sparse outside the floodgates.

Check out Proctors Landing Facebook group, lots of pictures there. Looks like shell beach got about 4’ of water in rooms underneath camps, so that’s probably 8+ foot surge. I’ll be down to our camp tomorrow in yscloskey to look. You have a specific address you concerned with? Maybe can make a trip, although I think the bridge is out of commission and I’ll be there by vehicle

Please check out boats on protected side of gates. I've got one there and don't know how soon I need to move it as this is my first season there.

Ok, I can definitely do that. Will try to post back what I see before lunch, but depending on service it could be the afternoon. What side of the road is your boat on?

FWIW I wouldn’t stress, there will likely be many boats and campers still there, usually are for at-least a couple weeks

Thanks I appreciate it but we should be set. We are in Ft. Bouregard and we hung our shed under camp 5’ off ground. Hopeful we should be good with the water, was worried about roof shingles. Heading down there this weekend.

Thank you. I don't know which side it's on. Storm blew up so quick I had to hire someone to move it as I am 5 hours away

Saw a post reporting that the Yscloskey bridge would re-open today, we shall see.

In proctors it was about 4-5 ft of water over most of the slabs and docks. Some camps have lots of grass, others not much.

Just passed the wall going in, there is still PLENTY of boats and campers. Over a miles worth. All boats looked in great shape, a couple campers are trash, but most look great from the road

Also bridge is open, I spoke with the sheriffs officers working the road block at the corner of 46 and Florissant, they will let anyone in as long as you have a purpose, attempting to keep riff raft out

Edit to add looks like we got about 4.5’ over the pad in Yscloskey
