They are calling this the 70 year storm and it sure has wreaked havoc for the entire state of Washington many of the major roads surrounding the Tri-Cities are impassible and have been closed...

Several of my Facebook friends have been posting photos from various stores including these photos from Pasco Walmart which clearly show completely empty shelves...

I would guess that people really stocked up but more than likely the stores probably haven't been able to get deliveries due to the roads being closed...

My Son works at Safeway in Kennewick and they seem to have plenty of merchandise so I'm not quite sure whats up with Walmart?
