I was in the ocean between New York and Bermuda during Irene. I would have some pics, but the top decks were all closed due to 100mph crosswinds and 24 foot swells.
It was brutal.

VT got hit really hard. Montgomery (town at the base of Jay Peak) Was an island for a few days with no roads in or out. Fortunately they got fixed faster than many. There are still a lot of towns that are getting supplies airlifted in. Rte 242 in Jay washed out pretty bad in several spots. Going up to the mountain from town is still 1-lane because of where the road washed out in this pic.
Lots of bridges all washed out. Down in Waterbury main st was under about 4' of rushing water. One of my favorite bars to hit in that town had water stains and debris on top of the tables.

The hurricane had weakened substantially by the time it reached Quebec City, but it was still pretty intense. 50-120mm rain & 60-120kph winds recorded in various towns throughout the province. Lots of full sized trees downed. A bit of other damage (gazebos, power lines, signs, etc). There was one story of a road that washed out, and swept 2 cars into the river... 1 man presumed dead (still missing).
Still way more intense down in the states though!
Crazy pics on that link, thanks.
