Hey guys... I just saw this post. I work in the area that was hit (not the worst area, but bad enough) In all, there was a lot of destruction, but for an area of the country that does not see stuff like this, people made it through rather smooth. I work as an insurance appraiser for auto, and did have a very busy time for sure! One of the shops I deal with lost the building they were in, and the add-on cinder block building that housed the spray booth, was blown fully away! In fact, he was painting a car when it happened and just had left the booth to mix more paint.

Tornados are bad. We had some bad ones on april 27 in Alabama. 320 people killed in state, 7 people kill in my neighborhood and we are still picking up and rebuilding. My prayers go out to those harmed today.

It first hit a mile from my house. Too close for comfort.
One women was killed when she covered her 15 yr old daughter in the bathtub, and the house collapsed on top of her.
My street was closed for 3 days because of damage.
