the same storm destroyed a lot of the downtown section of Gifford. Truly terrible sight. hard to believe I was hunting just an hour before it hit. Almost drove right into it. My mom called and told me not to come any farther north. Unreal.

more than 50 without homes. I live in washington, thankfully no damage to our home but several friends and family lost everything. I walked through the rubble thats left from what I once called my home in my old neighborhood that I grew up in, and I could not even tell where I was. I couldn't find the street I grew up on is how bad it was. There is more like 150 in washington alone without homes

Wish there was something we could do for those in need.

Heard a statement from a Fire Chief asking everyone to stay out of the area and not to call 9-1-1 or non-ermergency lines until further notice unless there is an emergency on hand. Calling the police/fire department to check on a loved one is not an emergecy and is wasting valuable resources that could be used else where. Also, a police officer was hearing screaming for help from the remains of a house. Now that is an emergency! I am sure the rubbernecks and "professional" photographers are flooding the area. I know first hand what a PITA they are. They cause congestion for emergency responders and clutter cleared roadways with their cars. If you are an acting citizen not involved in any of the tragedy, stay out of the area. :hammer:

Yea all the gawkers were everywhere there. We were helping our family and friends out trying to get everything and everyone out that we could. I hated seeing all these independant photographers getting off to see the destruction just to get a few pictures for their blog.

Sorry to hear that. Your helping is legit. Those freelancers are trying to make money. Ironic, in the time of need and emergency they swarm like a dog in heat filling up memory cards, but the victim's memories were lost forever. They should be arrested. I have seen it happen once only because he obviously couldn't follow simple commands/instructions.

So sorry for all effected yesterday it was much worse in many other places then here coal city got it pretty good less then 2 miles from my house crazy to think i drove right thru the path less than an hr before it happened amd got off heideckie lake that close in time is also pretty scary. Donated a bunch if clothing today to the local church i hope eveyone gets the help they need and or find it in their hearts to help out however you can. In times like this anything more then nothing is something to someone. Slightly upset hearing the news this morning talking about the typhoon recovery though i mean we couldnt put that on the backburner just for a few days at least to help our own out? Cmon america

My daughter, son in law and 5 grandsons were at church in Washington when the tornado hit. It passed within 200 yds of the Five Points building where the service was being held. They were all shaken but ok. Too close for comfort for sure.
