These pictures do not show all the
damage in town. Many other buildings are destroyed, including homes.
The town and the surrounding area is in very bad shape. It will be
years before everything is restored in town. As of this writing on
September 24, 2003 there are still many without power, water, or telephones.
We're lucky that no lives were lost. I was told this morning that
there were many more homes severely damaged than originally thought.
Colonial Beach is a town of around
3000 people. With the loss of mutiple businesses, (the Happy Clam,
Wilkerson's, The Riverboat, Dockside, The Landing, and the Beachball) that's
a large percentage of jobs lost.
Thanks for taking the time to read
this and look at the pictures. Any good thoughts you can send our
way would be greatly appreciated.
