My Drive Around The Schenectady Area To View Tornado Damage [Gallery]
Yesterday I became very curious. I took a drive to Rotterdam and the surrounding area to see if I could get some photos. Here was the surprising result
First I drove right to one of the hardest hit areas in Schenectady County -Rotterdam- and tried (while driving) to grab a few pix. I didn't get far.
I did find this tree. That was prettyamazing. Let's see if there's more out there
I wanted to go down this road, but they wouldn't let me.
I saw tons of traffic, but no damage. Not a very good investigative report so far, huh?
I did happen to pass this gentleman working really hard to chop up the pieces that fell.
Ironically, I saw more intense damage in my home town of Niskayuna. There was a lady standing by this garage, taking pictures of the damage (possibly for insurance reasons) I asked if I could interview her but she declined. I felt really bad for her. She had just had her 100 year old house completely re-sided, and THIS happened!
This was the worst. This poor person's car- buried, right in Niskayuna
Well, that was the result of my travels. Who got it worst? Seems like Niskayuna had just as much of a problem as Rotterdam from my meager survey of homes. I really hope that everyone recovers quickly from this. It came out of nowhere, didn't it?
