This was the square in 1975 where The Opera House was and the damage that that tornado did to the upper square.
Now we will see what The Opera House looked like since 2003 to present, well up until 5:45 PM this evening.
Now, I will post a photo of The Opera House so you could see what it looked like earlier today when the town was hustling and bustling prior to the Natural Gas Leak Explosion.
Now I will show you The Opera House Tonight and what photo I have (will try to update them as I can take them and when I am allowed to). They would have a major cow if people was up in there at the present time with them having all the inspectors and environmental people and whoever in the hell that would need to be here right now at the present time for this situation.
Now I will show you what photos I have of my friend who lost his business, there isnt many on this because it's right next door to The Opera House and some of these photos are hard to get when your not allowed up into the heart of the devastation. These are mostly of the back of their business, I'll note the one at the "front" of his store the best that I can for you.
This is the back of The Opera House. To the hard right that twisted wreckage was once a Home Health Care Center and a Beauty Salon
This is the street coming off the square by Scrap Book Dreams, across the street that is completely burred in bricks, debris and rubble and cars is a sporting goods store and I think the back part is an auto body shop but I'm not 100% positive of that all without windows or doors due to the explosion that happened just right across the street.
November 16th 2016 This is what I was dealing with in my home city. It's been a very stressful, Scary and heartbreaking evening for me and my entire city.
With there only being 7 day's until Thanksgiving it's hard to be thankful when a family has lost their loved one, my heart goes out to that family. Sending love and light to them during this very dark time.
And please remember.... No matter where you live weather it be a state or another country you too can celebrate Thanksgiving all you have to do is show thanks for your friends and family and celebrate that day. You don't need to be an American to celebrate your family and or friends so be thankful for them and let them know you hold them dear in a special place in your heart. It only goes to show you how uncertain our lives are as there is nothing promised and tomorrow may never come. So live your life to the fullest as if you were already dying.
