Just heard that there was a family of three killed in atkins up in pope county. A man his wife and a child. I haven't heard the details but it doesn't sound good. Lord be with the family of these people.
Didn't get much here in the Mt. Vernon/Enola area not even much wind just some heavy rain for a few minutes with a little flash & bang. I do have some family in the Shirley area that had some damage. Great Aunt lost her house, Uncle & Cousin lost roofs and an Uncle had some roof damage. That's all I know of now.
Prayers out to everybody affected by these storms.
Prayers for all the families affected by the storm.
Some idiot needed the station on yesterday evening had to work out in the mess last night. Called the wife because at the time we had a possible headed right for the house but we came out ok. We were the lucky, ones most was south or north of us.
Clinton to Shirley area hit hard. We were up there till late last night, went up with my son and SIL(monsterman) to take his welding truck to use his cutting torches at the boat plant where they were digging folks out, they finally sent us home from the stage'n area , there were so many gas leaks in the downtown area they weren't letting anyone in. So many trees blocking the roads you couldn't get anywhere. The boat factory completely destroyed, lots of houses destroyed from southeast of Clinton to Shirly, Western Sizzler at Clinton maybe a total loss. I've also heard so bad reports fromAtkins to Blackwell to Wonderview to Cleveland to Clinton then on to Shirley. Lots of folks in a world of hurt over a big area
