A day in Pictures
Long beach, this used to be an isthums, now it is a sand bar
A set of old stairs on the beach where the cottages used to be located.
Found the reason why the generator is not running
Propane tanks adrift from storm surge. There was a strong propane smell around these tanks, I secured all the valves.
Where the propane tanks should be
Debris washed ashore during storm surge around north tower, including a section of dock
Second high tide after Hurricane Sandy, noon on Tuesday, flooding ground system
Three phase power line down due to wind
More wind damaged power lines
Telco wires taken down by trees
Generator room water level, as seen on the side of the battery
More work here tomorrow.
Update: Took longer than anticipated, but the station is back on the air with generator power as of 8:15 am, Thursday (11/1). Commercial power restoration is not expected until Monday or Tuesday at the earliest.
Update: Commercial power restored on Thursday, 11/8 for a total outage of 10 days. One good thing about incidents like this, I now have a fresh set of contacts for all the important people connected to servicing this site.
