Hurricane Igor hit my hometown province of Newfoundland yesterday and left thousands without power for more than 24 hours. A few people got on their blackberries around the neighborhood mentioning that everyone was safe.
I didn’t hear back from my family for two whole days (yesterday and today) so I’m not sure if they’re still without power, or why they’re not calling back.
Either way, here is some of the destruction that has been going on. Igor left quite a hefty mark on our little province.
These photos were all grabbed from Twitpic.
