    I live 15 miles SW of PR and I had 21 big trees down in my yard and an 80ft. one came down on my house. 3 holes in our ceilings. Plus hundreds of trees down in the woods to the North of our house. Also, another party 7 mi. SW of us had major damage and trees down as well. So, it started further out than what they thought.
