This USED to be a lakside house, it was totally demolished, and about 95% of it ended up in the water. The only part left relatively intact was the concrete foundation, which is hiddenbehind the downed trees.

The eerily strange thing was, the house next to it, about 100 yerds away to the right, was virtually unscathed, just a minor amount of cosmetic damage to its boat house, and the house was absolutely untouched, even though it was surrounded on three sides by fallen trees. The floating debris is surrounded and held back by a yellow polyprop rope, in orter to keep it from drifting out into the lake.

The tornado crossed the lake and struck the other side where it did a LOT of major damage.
