wind damage causes mail delays

Mail delays across Eastern Washington and North Idaho are likely over the next few days following wind damage and flooding at a U.S. Postal Service mail storage facility at the Spokane airport. Strong winds Tuesday night damaged the building’s roof, which was still under repairs from the mid-November windstorm that left much of the Inland Northwest without power for days. The new damage caused rain to flood the building, USPS spokesman Ernie Swanson said. No mail was damaged in the flooding, Swanson said. “Yesterday’s storm just set us back quite a bit so we’re not able to use that facility today,” he said/Rachel Alexander, SR. More here.

Question: Did you suffer any damage from Wind Storm II?
