He drove over to the town to check on my brother's wife and daughter and could only get within a couple miles of the town. He walked the rest of the way into town and found their house completely gone and no sign of anyone. The Red Cross is setting up shelters and last we heard he was going there to see if they're safe. We don't know anything yet.
Prayers for you and everyone at all the towns that were so brutally struck. Charleston my parents said they heard the tornado sirens and got into the basement of my sister's house. It seemed to be a false alarm I was up on the hill at the y and it was coming down in sheets for a while.
