“I drove from wakarusa to Nappanee because my son was staying with his cousin.. As I drove on 19.. Cr 46 light was off and as I got into town it was an Erie sight with not 1 light on in town.. Luck sisters house was ok along with my son.. Never the less we drove through town towards the east on 6 and as I got to cr 7 .. And us 6 it was the worst visual I’ve ever seen.. The light hanging by a wire. Cars running into each other because they was looking at the damage.. Papers all over.. Businesses leveled.. It will always stay with me.. We see things in tv and papers but not many of us live to see it in person..” - Scott Rouch
