Quoting Osiris30 (Reply 5): Anyone have a link to info on the storm/pictures of the damage.
I've been living in a cave lately.. Sounds like it was nasty.
Yes, it was the worst windstorm since at least 1993. Over one million households are without power in western Washington (including me -- I'm posting from a laptop and a cell phone modem at the parents' house, which luckily has a generator), plus another 350,000+ in Portland. Trees and power lines are down everywhere. News footage has shown light planes at BFI with their wings ripped off. Here are some links.

I working HA's OGG-SEA flight today and we are going to have a sizeable delay due to the late arriving aircraft from SEA. Looks like 2 of HA's three aircraft are still on the ground in SEA....one of the 2 HNL flights has left, but all three are LATE!!
And who says HA doesn't have to deal with weather!!

Which parts? Im assuming the old AA gates were affected.
Sometime between 1am and 2am on the 15th I was out in the North Satellite pulling jetways back from planes when the Port of Seattle made an announcement for everyone to stay away from windows. After I got back to the main offices behind the ticket counter I heard that windows had blown in and part of the cieling had collapsed somewhere near C10. The C Concourse was closed for quite some time last night as the Port of Seattle went through and cleaned up. It made for the interesting times as flights 376, 810 and 16 were waiting out at the end of the C concourse at that time still hoping to depart with more than a few passengers sitting around in the waiting areas. Unfortunatly for all of the passengers on those flights they ended up cancelling after 2am.
It was pretty fun last night watching planes rock and bounce sitting on the ground. At one point before the C10 window came down I felt the window at N7 as it popped in and out with the wind. It was both fascinating and scary at the same time watching as planes bounced around in the wind.
