Default Rivertown gone

In a time when we have lost riverboats and river people now we have lost an entire river town. Moscow, Ohio was hit by an EF-3 tornado on March 2, 2012. 90% of the homes damaged and 60% estimated destroyed and not rebuildable. The house my grandfather lived in right on the river, where he needed to be to run the ferry and Moscow's big wharfboat, was completely turned into rubble. It was a big brick with walls 6-8" thick. Moscow had taken a big hit with the 1937, 1964 and 1997 flood but had survived. An interesting fact, after the 1997 flood some new structures had to be built elevated, now it appears the tornado winds got under those raised structures and they just collapsed or vanished !!
