OMG. Glad to hear he's ok. That photo is confusing, it's either taken on the south side of the river (hard to get to) or his whole house floated off and moved.

Sorry, Shortski.

maybe you had to much to fast? I'm talking flash flooding, not wind. I think winds topped out around 50 mph

That's not wind. It looks like it was undermined by water.

It wasnt necessarily the winds, it appears that the water eroded the ground under the building and it more or less just fell in....

Donnie, sorry to see that pic, glad you are okay....
