I'm lucky.. I just have no power, no cable, and a boil water warning...

This was filmed less than 1/2 from where I live. (basically a 10 minute walk)

This is the aftermath.

I've been following this on the news but until I just watched your aerial footage I had no idea how widespread the destruction was. This is just awful.

I'm glad that you and yours are safe.

Luckily (as far as I know), all my friends and family are fine.. Just a little damage here and there (roofing tiles, etc.)

Still makes you realise the impact when you hear other people talking though... Certain areas were basically untouched, while others are simply gone...
It'll be a while before it sinks in for pretty much everyone here. There's whole areas that are sectioned off due to downed lines, gas leaks, etc.. Volunteers, plumbers, roofers, etc aren't even allowed in at the moment.

but... yea.
Here ya go, if you want to read about it. I won't post the details here.

I didn't take the video... I'm not that stupid. I'd be out of the car jumping in a ditch at that point.
