From Deputy Mayor via FB: Don Purdy Well just did a drive through Galloway Twp. So far so good there is some flooding and down trees. But all in all looks like part of the town lost power. But not all lets see what the second half brings. Stay safe Galloway 55 minutes ago via mobile ·

The worst seems to have passed, but we have backwinds, downed trees and outages, still. Oh, and high tide in about half an hour.
