    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    Yours in health,
    WebMD Message Boards Management

    I hope everyone is ok and survived the storm. My area still has a post apocalyptic look but at least the power is coming back on. It will be good to get some fresh food again but so far the stores have not restocked. I was somewhat prepared, i had batteries and some food, but my new rule is to buy much more for the next storm.

    Good to hear from you, Dusty.

    Here is Western New York we were just affected by the western most edge of the storm. We had lots of rain and wind. There was some downed trees and flooding as well as all the schools were closed.

    What a terribly devastating storm. My thoughts and prayers are with you and everyone affected.
