Hurricane Irene knocked over our wooden fence with 4x4s set in concrete. The ground is flat and saturated. After the fallen trees that pushed the fence over are removed I'll stand the fence up but I'm afraid when the ground dries up there'll be a gap between the subterranean earth and the post concrete. That would weaken the stability of the fence. Any suggestions for addressing this issue? Thanks

@jdrower,
My suggestion would be to get new posts and dig new post holes.

Alternately, dig enlarged post holes, and pour new concrete around the old.

Don't forget, the holes should be dug in a cone shape, so that the base is somewhat larger than the top.

If I remember correctly, the top of the hole should two to three times the diameter of your post.
