My sister texted me yesterday to tell me that her friend Chris was missing and that she and a bunch of other folks were helping in the search efforts. He and a friend had been drinking early that night at my buddy Joe's and had decided to go walking out near Hoopes resevoir in the storm.* I found out earlier this morning via text that Chris and his friend both passed away, apparently drowning in a flash flood in Mill Creek.
*This is a dangerous place to walk on a sunny day while sober, much less drunk and in a Hurricane.
I remember Chris hanging out at the beach with us. he was a good kid. My thoughts and prayers go out to both families and to the families of all those killed in this hurricane.
