Looking to hang out in Hopkins later this year. I am a bit concerned about the state of the village after Earl's visit. How is the damage there? Will the village's tourism be disrupted long? Did the Sittee river flood badly?

I do not think there is any worry about visiting mostly signage and trees affected, there is and could be more flooding due to runoff but my understanding is that it is not excessive. on my visit there last friday there was nothing that i saw that showed major damage.

Hopkins had minimal damage. A few trees and fences blown over. No flooding or storm surge. We were on the southern part of the storm. Electric, TV and internet all restored in less than 18 hours.
Stupid should hurt!
