Storm Kills 4, Cuts Power in Northwest US

Makes the storm sound like a mass murderer.

Howling windstorms and heavy rains caused at least four deaths, closed bridges and highways and cut power to about 1.5 million homes and businesses in Washington and Oregon, authorities said Friday.

I find it comforting in remembering that at any time, any place, mother nature could just wipe us right off the face of the map.

One of the concourses at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport lost power, and an airport spokesman said some flights were canceled.

Oh the humanity!

A 41-year-old Seattle woman died Thursday after she became trapped in her basement while it flooded. Neighbors had called for help after they heard screaming.

"Yes police, the woman next door to us is making such a racket..."
