CBS DFW (Dallas/Fort Worth) has a story on a Garland carrier who lost almost 200 stops on his route after a massive tornado ripped through the Dallas suburbs of Sunnyvale, Garland and Rowlett on the evening of December 26th, 2015.

This area is very close to where I live (on the Sunnyvale/Mesquite border). Last week I drove through the impacted neighborhoods and was astonished to see the widespread devastation. Almost a month after the tornado hit, it looked almost as if the tornado had hit the day before. Much work will need to be done in the coming year to restore the homes, businesses and neighborhoods affected by the tornado. Below are a few photos I took last week of the devastation in Garland and Rowlett. The nighttime photos are from the night of the tornado (Dec. 26th). – Tom, PostalMag.com
