I'm west of Tampa in PInellas County and all is generally Ok here. Many in my county / area are without power and have trees down. I feel so fortunate, as I've got power, my friends and family are all ok, and the fish are fine in the pond. I have a few minor branches down and some small tree damage, with continuing high, gale force winds, but that's nothing in the scheme of things.
The counties south (west coast of Florida) and east (central Florida) of us experienced heavy wind damage and severe flooding which hasn't receded yet, and the storm is continuing up the east coast of Florida and South Carolina.

Glad to hear you're OK! I hope the other folks in Florida will be able to check in soon to let us know they made it through. From what I see on the news, this was one humongous storm!

Yes thank you @SarahT I too have been hoping and praying @rubyduby was not harmed by the storm. I hope we see her soon. Good to hear her fish and hopefully her little turtle made it through fine too.

I heard from @rubyduby who is safe, though without power or internet. Her pond and fish are ok , pending removal of debris in the pond. I'll let her fill you in more as she gets back to normal.
Oh good! Thanks for the update!

Well, looks like we are going to get slammed...Any advice as to my pond? I don't have a generator but I bought a solar aerator. Of course I won't be able to set it up until the winds and rain die down...I don't know how long we will be without power. I will shut off my pump once things get bad...Will the wind on the water help aerate? Calling for 10+ inches of rain...Stay safe SarahT and others here in Florida!
i would leave pond running let the power go out on its own then as you are provide aeration

Well that was some storm! Wind was wicked and the rain, yikes! I am so happy that Florida has sandy soil! If that was my old home in Virginia with the clay soil I would have lost my fish for sure. Thank you all for the concerns...We are all fine including my fish and my turtle. I posted (Hungry Turtle) before I saw all of your posts on this thread. We JUST got our cable so I couldn't wait to see what I have been missing:)
