a truly devastating disaster in probably the heaviest populated area in the US. The amount of damage is just incredible, and the pictures coming in are unbelievable! Thoughts and prayers to everyone recovering from it.
One of the awesome, long standing guys on the tacoma forum i'm on lives right in the epicenter of where this storm hit. This was the last picture he sent into the forum as an update on his condition. Nobody has been able to reach him for over a day now. Hopefully his service just got knocked out and he is too busy recovering and helping his family (whos houses were also destroyed)
