OK, now that all hell has quit breaking loose:
Strong wind did not destroy our home, nor are many dead, unless you count the trees, but wow. Big storm, big wind, lots of trouble. As for us, just a little damage when the power crews re-hooked up our electricity (the power pole was destroyed by a falling tree). The front page for that day is here.
Anyway, the paper had to publish off site, a new one for me, and the first time in memory the paper couldn't get out at the plant. A good video about that is here, produced by my friend and colleague Carlos. Complete with my messy hair, cackling and a nice shot of the butterfly lady (and the rest of the crew, of course).
The video is from our makeshift newsroom - we could finish the paper in town but had to use an out-of-town press - and around town, which as you can see took a decent wallop from the wind. Not a big storm from a global perspective, but a good thumping for this city.
Needless to say, this was a great day from a work perspective. Pretty sad for our city, though. No human casualties were reported, though.
The past few days have been pretty busy, in a good way...
