We had a big rainstorm here today, biggest this year, and I thought that that bad storm was around the same time. Boy that storm was loud and furious! Watched it from 3 to 4 AM on the porch. Definitely in the top 3 biggest storms I’ve ever seen in my life. The disaster area was right behind us and the worst was a few kilometers away. They’ve done a lot of work on those steel hills, but the scars are still there. So sad.
