It may be a bit premature to ask but after seeing the Gulf Coast get clobbered and knowing there are many timeshares in that area, does anyone know first hand or has anyone heard about specific properties? We own at Escapes to the Shores in Orange Beach but have not yet heard about the extent of damage to the property. There are some who underestimated the strength of Sally and did not evacuate. Hopefully there are no loss of lives.

dd is in the coast guard and is stationed in Mobile. They were propositioned near the NOAA office prior to the storm hitting. She was released today to go home (she lives in Pennsacola) Can't speak to the damage but she said the traffic heading that way was really heavy this afternoon and it looked everyone that was evacuated was heading home. She was released early......they did not need the staff they anticipated which I think is a good indicator that there was not as much damage as expected

I recently acquitted an Escapes to Palm Beach in a orange beach and there was damage to the buildings. Some balcony walls, railings, windows, and corners on the roofs came down with the wind. Some units appear to have gotten water inside from the rain and wind, not from surge. They are estimating 7 days without power and are currently assessing damages.

I would recommend you search for a escapes to the Shores group on Facebook and see if they are providing updates. Yours should be a larger resort with more owners and units, so hopefully more info.
