Yes, our house got hit while we were in it. It took the roof off. I'll never forget THE PRESSURE!!! It was like we were in a vacuum and we were getting crushed by the intensity of it. I cant believe the windows didnt break. My son and I were on the porch watching the lightening and listening to the thunder.... when I heard the craziest noise I've ever heard. I grabbed him by the shirt and drug him inside... we got to the living room and the lights went out, I had just gotten him into the hallway when the roof came off.
The tornado wiped out our cute little town. Destroyed the only middle school in the county.. my son's grade school was ruined too.
My daughter was working... and was told not to leave until she washed the dishes and totaled the cash register, she hung up on her boss, she and her friends got in the car -leaving to seek shelter- when the wind really picked up. The wind blew their car all over the road, they got into the Dr's house's basement when it hit. The tornado completely wiped out Subway. There's no way she could have lived if she would have stayed and washed the dishes.
The good news- Its caused the town to pull together and southern hospitality has shown thru mightily.
We are also rebuilding...and its going to be a much more favorable situation all the way around. PLUS all my family are safe. No one can believe with as much devastation that occurred .... NO ONE DIED!
