I’ve just received some of the photos myself. It looks like massive damage. It stayed condition one for most of 48 hours. The photos i have are of the heavy shop overhead doors blown away, broken windows and missing siding on one of the closed up dorms, and one of the converted oil storage tanks with a blown away roof.
The winds were sustained on the hill at 120mph with gusts to 160.
Nobody was hurt. As Ken M. put it. +Unlike the nut’s who go out and watch hurricaines, we stayed indoors.”
