Our city of Cedar Rapids has been destroyed by a Derecho, a term for a type of storm I’ve never heard of and never want to hear of again. Walking through the destruction I came across this lost tree. My mind keeps coming back to it days later. #CedarRapids #derecho

A few quick thoughts on what I saw in Cedar Rapids today (1/?):
The destruction is literally EVERYWHERE. I’ve been other places where a natural disaster has struck, and you eventually drive out of the damage zone. Not so in #CedarRapids. #derecho
This storm spared very damn little. Huge...HUGE...probably 150 year old trees felled. Billboards blown away. The KCRG marquee in pieces. Traffic signals snapped at the base. I started seeing overturned grain bins as far out as Anamosa. A motorhome along the highway was toppled.
The historic neighborhoods near Brucemore and Bever Park seem to have gotten the worst of it. Debris still hangs over the side of the road even on major streets in the area. Some side streets are barely passable.
