Who on this forum have been effected by the recent outbreak of tornadoes ? Do you know any in

your congregation or other local congregations that were involved? What assistance is being given

to any of these ones at this point ?

I'm relatively new here but worried about our "family" in those areas too!  I heard one tornado was 1/2 mile wide and traveled for 80 miles!!!! Can you imagine being in the path of that?  Ava, who is on jwtalk lives in Texas but not sure what part - has anyone heard from her since yesterday?  So worried!

I heard on NPR radio an interview a guy gave who watched the tornado from his back porch.  He said it did sound like a freight train but he also heard a grinding noise (because of all the debris in it) and he said you could feel it "sucking in the wind" from all around him.  Just can't imagine how that would feel to witness something like that.

Has anyone on this forum heard any news about our sister Ava and her family ? Or any others who may have lived

in the area of these tornados ?

They missed us this time around.  Thank you for the concern though, it's very much appreciated!!!  

 

Most of the weather was north of my area this time.

Well, I have not heard any real bad news, so I guess that is a good sign.  Usually if there were many friends affected, news travels.  I have not heard anything though.

Thanks for asking about me, I can't tell you how sweet it was reading this thread and seeing you guys wondering if I was ok.

Thank you all for your updates on what you know about current conditions. Of course the news this evening

is full of more news of other tornados. We are now in tornado season. Our area is under severe storm warnings

for this evening, but so far no tornado warnings. But it is obviously time to review safety actions, and to put to-

gether a safety package of important papers that would be necessary to have access to after such a storm.

Also it goes without saying we should have all necessary emergency phone numbers of police, rescue personel,

elders, and perhaps the number for the local RBC. ( I will let those who are more familiar with the correct protocol

to make any recommendations in that regard. )
