Here’s an amazing story out of Texas of a house that survived Hurricane Ike.
Aerial coverage from CNN for the past few days has shown one, lone yellow house in Gilchrist, TX, that remains standing while other homes around it were obliterated by the hurricane a week ago. Then, through CNN’s iReport feature, a helicopter pilot named Ray Asgar posted his iReport , which shows the house. Comments soon started getting snippy, saying the photo wasn’t “real,” it was Photo-Shopped (God was drawn into the discussion as well — you have to read them). Soon, a woman using the sign-in of “Kelley1″ jumped in and said the house is real and it’s her sister’s house! She even supplied photos, which Anderson Cooper’s AC360 Blog nicely wraps up with this must-see before and after shot of the house.
