It's Been a nasty few Days up Dutch Harbor Way..................
With Winds up to 115 MPH on Saturday and No planes for a few days. Thankfully no lives were lost, but there were a lot of people tossed around and some Damage.
The Pac Steve Bunkhouse out on the Spit was really damaged as well as several cars when the wall collapsed, or basically was sucked out by the wind.
Freight containers were tossed around like so many toothpicks at both the APL and Horizon yards.
The Satellite dish at the Mormon Church was destroyed
A Safety wall around the Propane tanks at the Hotel collapsed
This shed out in the Valley was blown several hundred feet from it's former location
And A rear Exit door at the Grand was pulled out by the Nails!
But Still, THIS is UNALASKA and a little thing like Category Three Hurricane Winds is not enough to stop US from Enjoying the Annual U-SAFV Soup Off! Yes, what would make other communities Apply for Federal Disaster Relief, Just makes us say "Humm, Seems like good Soup Making weather!". And All to promote a wonderful Cause, U-SAFV. http://www.usafv.org/
UNFORTUNATELY my Regular camera became a bit waterlogged and was turning out pictures like the one above so all the rest are taken with my I-Phone.
