Starting on Friday, 13 October 2006, a heavy storm started to hit around the Buffalo area. The document is intended to show pictures of the damage around north Buffalo.

Many pictures were taken with the crude camera in a cell phone, but most were taken with a better digital camera.

This work in progress is largely complete at this time. I still may add to this as I find time. In the meantime, things may seem disjointed as I get the components organized. The date above will indicate when this was last updated.
