Lost power for a couple of hours already. I hope it stays on for the rest of the storm.

Tree on the roof here...it didn't break through, just landed on it..we're all okay, but the dogs are still shaken up. Between the earthquake, the storm and sensing out anxiety, the falling tree was just a bit much. All 4 are laying here in the family room watching us and each other. In a way it is very cute and comforting....

Personally doing okay but unfortunately here in town a young boy (9 yo) lost his life when a tree broke in half and came through the roof into his 2nd story bedroom straight through to the 1st floor. It took workers 2 hours to find him under the tree.

Dave, I am glad nothing more serious has happened. Are you out of danger yet? Thoughts and prayers are still with you.

Jabbur, my prayers are with the family of that young boy and everyone in your area. Be safe.
