This is the first accident that I have heard about in Tropical Storm Fay and it is a real bad one. I hope the guy makes it, he was yarded into the beach, across the highway and into a building. No helmet, impact vest, no attempt to Emergency Depower and the weather was going off at the time.
For folks thinking of going out in TS Fay, perhaps soon to be Hurricane Fay or squalls in general, take a good long look at the potential consequences. This is just a few days after the squall fatality in Brazil.

Let's pull for this kiter, I think he will need as many good wishes he can get.
