Phil Markgraf, the developer of Airborne Alert and the rest of the Birds of Prey line, is busy digging trenches around his house and sandbagging to try to keep it safe from mudslides. Just a few blocks up the hill, his mother-in-law's house was destroyed when a mudslide pushed it off its foundation. Amazingly, there have been no injuries in the area, even as the number of homes destroyed has climbed.

Phil's front yard is in the upper left. The mudslide danger is from the rear of the house. (Click to view.)

Phil's mother-in-law's house is in the upper right. The damage is obscured by the trees. Click to view.


This YouTube shows the flooding down the hill from Phil's house. This is actually the good part, because it's running fast and is mostly water.



Needless to say, Phil won't be putting the finishing touches on Airborne Alert this weekend.

Thank you for your concern everyone! Everyone is safe and my mother-in-law's home is finishing up cleanup and will be starting remodeling in the near future. The garage will need replacement.

Airborne Alert is now back to waiting on the new die-cutting vendor. My only remaining tasks are working with their inputs to fine tune positioning of content on the new dies!
