Seeing some of the footage and pictures of the damage, I have to say it was really lucky only one person was killed.
Agreed, the power of it was surprising forceful and just unreal to watch on the videos I've seen. Extremely sad to hear of the death but it could've been worse all things considering. I'm not too far from its path so its a bit scary to contemplate how close it was to where I live. Good to hear there was no damage to your property.
