  1. I have a picture of my 2500 lb pontoon (still in the boat lift) picked up and sent 25 ft to the east, taking the dock along with it. Of course it landed upside down. On north side of Fireside Lake.

  2. It came out of nowhere – no warnings at all. We were all very lucky as with no warnings, we weren't even in the house – got trapped on the porch. These clips show only a small portion of the damage.
