I know I already wrote a journal about it, but I wanted to put a little more focus on how thankful I am that no one in my close family was injured.

To put it into perspective how much of a miracle it is my family is ok, this is a map of all of the tornadoes that hit in my home town. As you can see, two F4 tornadoes hit extremely close to my house...that closer one is barely 5 minutes away as the eagle flies. Mom and dad said that it sounded like a freight train was barreling through.

And I'm even more thankful it didn't hit my grandmothers house, because my family was at least able to move someplace safer. My grandmother is bedridden--if anyone tries to even get her to sit up she stops breathing, and will die. Mom couldn't move her to a safer place. If that tornado hit, there was nothing my mom could do about it.

I am so, so, so thankful my family is ok. Thank you Lord.

This video shows how badly the F4 damaged the area, this one was maybe 15 minutes away from my home.

I just came home from college two days ago, and finally had a chance to go see this for myself. It nearly made me cry, and it has already been a week and so much has been cleaned up already.

It is so haunting to drive by a place where you know 8 people were killed--literally torn to pieces.

Mother nature is a powerful thing.

Please keep the families who lost loved ones, and those who lost their homes in your prayers.
And Thank you, Lord, for keeping everyone else safe.

Wow, that is something to be thankful for. This brings back memories of the May 3rd tornado here in Oklahoma. Touchdown wasn't nearly as close to my house as it was to yours, but I know the freight train sound all too well. *hugs* Glad to hear your family is safe.
