First, their luck ran out gambling in Reno. Then their luck disappeared just trying to get out of Reno. As Nevada's worst flood in half a century shut the airport and left them stranded, siblings Larry Paredes and Delores Paredes-Wilson of Oregon turned their bad luck into a modestly successful gamble. On Friday, they printed up T-shirts proclaiming "I Survived the 1997 Reno Flood" and hawked them on the muck-covered Virginia Street bridge in the heart of town.

Winds gusting off the Sierra Nevada at up to 89 mph blew out two plate glass windows at a closed restaurant Monday, downed power lines and trees, and turned nearby valleys into dust bowls. "It sounded like a bomb exploded," said Lisa Mohun of Truckee, Calif., who was 20 feet away when the windows blew out of the Two Giraffe's Bar and Grille in downtown Reno. One of the plates of glass was about 15 feet long by 5 feet high. The other was about 8 feet long.
