We, personally, didn't really have much damage, beyond losing power for 22.5 hours. A bunch of smaller branches down in the backyard and the like.
But my poor tomatoes took a beating.
Luckily, the tops only had mostly flowers or buds and no set fruit yet. Plus, they seem to be bouncing back ok.
The Butterfly Bush had a huge branch twisted violently to the ground. It didn't splinter or break, so we propped it back up. This fall, I'll prune it back drastically to help it recover better.
( Meanwhile, elsewhere... )
