She retreated and was eventually rescued by a boat crew; 140 more awaited assistance. We know how to manage expectations. Forecasters said this onslaught could last for days, leaving a wide area under water from both heavy downpours and rising seas. "We got thrown into mailboxes, houses, trees", said Holt, who had stayed at home because of a doctor's appointment that was later canceled.
