Storms Last Night
Storms came through last night about 8:40 pm last night and I see the news today saying they are trying to determine if a tornado came through the area. As you see by the photo I think I have proof of the tornado. I along with several other people sent in photos to show them that in fact there was a tornado.
There was very little warning as the storm popped up so quick but thankfully I have only heard of one death. There was a lot of damage but it could have been so much worse. I'm happy to say that I have talked to a lot of family and friends and all are alright but many have damage to property. I was lucky that the storm went south of my home and all is well here except a few tree branches in the yard.
I am heading out in a few to go help some friends clean up, but right now some roads are still closed so I can not get over there yet.
Here are some photos from some friends and some from the news stations showing some of the damage. Some were taken last night and some from this morning.
This here is a place called "The Pizza Place". The place has been there for 40 years, I actually worked there when I was a teen. It's 3 blocks from my dad's home and about 5 miles from my home. My favorite place to get pizza in the area.
This Photo is taken by a friend, It is what is left of one of the dugouts at one of the local high school baseball fields.
This has to be one of the luckiest people in the area. Imagine what would have happened if that tree fell the other way.
My Friend Rick's place from the road. As you see quite a few trees down but the house is still in one piece all long with all family members.
My Friend Kyle's place, he said besides the trees the only damage he has is "a puncture wound in the garage roof". I asked what that meant and he said there is a perfectly round hole in the roof like a fence post went through the roof but he can not find what made the hole.
