Local Storm Damage – Pictures

Lola Lauri

The truth is, we were lucky.  The power is still out for some of our neighbors, but the flooding and damage could have been a whole lot worse.  The power companies can’t tell us when service will be back, but the Community Center is open for those needing a shower or something warm to drink.  Mr. Z’s has limited power, but they are open.  The gas station has no power to the pumps, but their quick mart is open. Still, to the person whose tree fell, or to the child whose play house was crushed, this storm was serious business. To those without power, it could be a cold miserable night.

Facebook kept us updated on the storm and on how our neighbors were doing, all through the day and night.  In this community, no one needs to feel alone.  A quick trip around the area shows us that the power and cable crews are hard at work, local businesses are doing what they can to help out, and people are poking their heads out for a look around.  We just got notice that PP&L is asking everyone to stay off the roads right now, so they have room to do repairs.  Here are some pictures of what we saw while we were out.

We saw many bent and mangled signs, but this one just flew off the post.

Many trees were uprooted. This one landed on the power lines and blocked Doe Dr.

Could be a while before power is restored.

These folks won’t be leaving their driveway anytime soon.

We saw some abandoned homes with the doors blown open. Reported them to security.

Nothing new here, this puddle always appears when there is a storm. Maybe the new drainage program will help here.

Do us a favor and stop anyway, okay?

A child is like a butterfly in the wind. Some can fly higher than others, but each one flies the best it can. Why compare one against the other? Each one is different. Each one is special. Each one is beautiful.
