KELLER, Wash. - On Friday afternoon, a storm ripped through northern Washington, leaving the small town of Keller, Washington in shreds. Trees were down all over the town, blocking roads, crushing power lines, and damaging houses.
The storm only lasted about an hour, but left all of the residents without power, many without water. One of the only buildings in the town with water is the Keller Community Center. The center has turned into the hub of the town.
One of the lead volunteers, Corrie Johnson described the scene. "You can see its set up like a little city...There were some people that were restored electric yesterday and they still come because they want to help out and be a part of the community.
Everyone comes here, this is the place to be." The center feeds the members of the community, Johnson estimates they feed around 250 people a meal. The families that the storm displaced also stay here at the center. If you would like to help out, just call the center at 509-634-2190.
