  1. Even though storms like this can happen anywhere and at anytime, it is crazy to think that it happened in Colonial Beach, because you don’t normally here about disasters happening there. There were so many damages and I did a little extra research and watched a few videos on YouTube, they were terrifying to just watch, can’t imagine what it was like for the people actually experiencing it.
