        Neighbors told us they saw their (her grandparents’) furniture fly out of the front room and down the street,” Halvorson said.
          One of those pieces of furniture was a dresser filled with old family photographs.

          After commenting on the post, she was able to locate where the dresser and photos were and reunite them with her grandparents.
          The most heartwarming photo that was found was my grandmother’s parentswedding picture,” 她说.
          Each day more and more items keep appearing at the park, Halvorsen said, some belonging to her grandparents.
          My grandparents left their house with nothing and were fully convinced they would lose everything,” 她说, “finding those pictures that are irreplaceable definitely brought happy tears and smiles to their faces.
          It will be a while until the Bastians can go back to living in their home as the first floor is completely ruined.
            Debris, trees, and rocks are basically all the way up to the roof of the first floor,” Halvorsen said.
            As for now, the community continues to help each other rebuild and reunite with their belongings.
