This morning around 5 AM I was woke up by sirens, but It didn’t look like there was that much going on out the window so I went back to bed. I got back up at 5:30 for my morning walk, the internet and phone were out. I knew something was up because cars were everywhere and sirens were all around. Still I saw no damage around the uptown area where I walk so I assumed there must have been some major storm damage South of town. I could see that there didn’t seem to be power on that side of town.
I was ready to leave for work when my Dad drove up to see if we were OK and he informed me of a tornado touching down near Wal-Mart, possible deaths and people trapped. Shauna and I got on our bikes and rode around town taking pictures. People were walking around stunned and talking to their neighbors throughout the South Side of town. Small children were playing, happy to have a day off of school, and those who had damage, sometime complete devastation were walking around the area looking for photos, clothes or anything that they couldn’t replace.
There are 4 confirmed deaths at this time.
