Thunderstorms, Tornadoes and Flooding...Oh My!

Last night a series of storms rolled by leaving in it's wake some terrible damage. Fortunately, where we were, the storms just skirted around us producing some heavy rain.

My family lives about 80 miles southwest of us and their area was hit hard. My youngest son was staying with his dad and experienced the horrible weather as well. None of my family was hurt and their properties are still intact.

About 4 tornadoes touched down (two confirmed). At one of the malls, it did considerable damage and shattered the windows of the cars in the parking lots. There was an 18 wheeler that was turned on it's side and a gas pump that was actually turned over on top of a vehicle. Visible roof damage and various debris from nearby business was also found.

Here's some photos from the area. Please pray for those who were injured and suffered storm damage.
