More Photos of the Damage.

About Zakiah

I write poetry and some fiction, have a book that was published in 2012. . . Stray Thoughts/Winged Words. I have four grandchildren, ages 16 and half to almost 16 months. I love the ocean, and grew up along the Indian Ocean in South India. I am a retired physician. Don't know much else to say. Thanks for reading. That has been my profile for so many years. My daughter Saadia a great poet and story teller, has two sons; the oldest grandson is now 21 years old, doing architectural engineering at Missouri S&T in Rolla MO. His younger brother is almost 16 and taking driving lessons seriously and is in High School. The other two grandsons, children of my son Sayeed, are 9 and 5. I have recently published another book titled Gulistan, A home of Flowers. It has stories and memories of my childhood and of a distant land which I still consider as my HOME., even though I have lived here in the US for more than fifty years. Hope to see you on my blog.

      I know! So sad. One of my neighbours, had the entire side of his roof, a window and the gutters damaged by a huge tree. Unbelievable power to these winds. Thanks for your prayers. I hope you are doing well.

  7. I visited here or at the previous post but I wonder why I did not comment . Something called me urgently.
    The photos are frightening and say well the magnitude of the tornado . This recalls me the war and the bombings.
    Fortunatly your family is safe
    Love ❤

      Dear Michel,
      Thank you for the kind thoughts. I am sure some of the pictures reminded you of the war times. Honestly, the streets I was driving on, reminded me of pictures from a war zone; utility poles broken, electrical wires on the ground, hundreds and hundreds of trees uprooted and blocking the roads, all this was a nightmare I do not want to go through again.
      Yes my family is safe, and I thank God for that.
      Love, ❤
      Zakiah.

    The streets are not cleared off yet. Huge trunks lay around the sidewalks, and cars, crushed by trees are still there. it will probably take another week or more to get everything cleared.
