Freedom Plaza, Suffolk

We all remember my post last year about FREEDOM PLAZA?

It’s dead. The tornado that ripped through Suffolk yesterday demolished this place.

  1. A true blessing that not a single person lost their his or her life in this destruction. A true blessing.

  2. Indeed, it was.

    Was watching a TV report. Woman who ran a nail salon there (I guess in Freedom Plaza), she and a bunch of folks were practically covered over in debris. She had to dig out her young child (a baby or young toddler, I think). But (IIRC) the kid & the rest were relatively unharmed.

    Plus it seems Obici was closeby. Had a tornado hit the hospital– well, things could’ve been a lot worse.

  3. I guess our fallen heroes weren’t interested in having a shopping plaza named after them.

    Or maybe it was a terrorist tornado. You know they hate our freedoms? Or at least our Freedom Plazas.
