This is the kind of stuff I was referring to about stories. This is important, and is worth morning over. Lives were lost. Unlike that painting that got stolen.
The worst natural related encounter I ever had was the Flood of 95' here in Tigard. Streets were flooded, houses were almost a quarter way high in water. I remembered when i was about 6 and looking outside at my backyard, it was soooo windy and raining, that my backyard was so flooded it had waves and resembled and ocean. Freaked me the FUCK out.
In any case, my heart goes out to the families who lost their loved ones.
