[VIDEO] Despite Destruction All Around, A 1969 Corvette Survives Hurricane Laura


[VIDEO] Despite Destruction All Around, a 1969 Corvette Survives Hurricane Laura

Having been through several hurricanes, albeit smaller than the Category 4 storm that struck the gulf coast two days ago, our hearts go out to those dealing with the aftermath of Hurricane Laura. With the signs of destruction all around, it is amazing how some things come through the storm relatively unscathed.

A reader named Jacob sent us such a video from storm chaser Reed Timmer who surveys the damage from Lake Charles. He points out how entire buildings were leveled from their foundations with the debris laying downstream from the vicious winds. Yet among the fallen trees and damaged buildings comes small signs of hope to those who lived through the terrifying 24 hours.

As Reed shares a look at the damage, he pans from a completely destroyed building to that of an auto repair shop that was still standing. And in the middle of it all sits an Orange 1969 Corvette Stingray on a lift. Much of the building is destroyed around the car, yet here is someone’s baby that appears to have survived with what may only be cosmetic damage.

From Reed Timmer via YouTube:

It’s these little triumphs over the storm that give survivors hope in these times. We hope and pray for those in the storm’s path and here’s to a speedy recovery.

  1. I’m glad someone’s Vette didn’t get destroyed, if one of my classics was wrecked it would really hurt (their peoples dreams, not just cars). Our Canadian hearts go out to those dealing with the aftermath of Hurricane Laura.
