That's why an OTA antenna(s) is needed as a backup. Hope you get your local stations back soon. I hear some areas of VA and NC got over 5" of rain.
I don't think I got 5 inches, but it was pretty steady for about 2.5 days.
Agree 100% about OTA antenna / TV to receive it on. Hurricanes really play havoc with DBS, and not much better on digital OTA...
