The 3 photos above are from local TV stations. This is just a sampling of the damage done this afternoon around Arlington, Lancaster, Forney and the path in between. Soooo much loss and damage! Can you imagine coming home and finding that you had no home left? Some could not get into their communities due to downed power lines. Police have barricaded many areas and 40,000 + are without power. People are looking for their pets ~ just heartbreaking! So far, no fatalities reported and that is a true miracle! I think there were 12 tornadoes dancing around ~ lots of hail and wind damage too.
This is my daughter's car ~
Can't see the back of it in these photos.
Her friend's car ~
And another employee's car ~
All the employee's cars were similarly damaged. They were all safe and all banded together to make sure each person had a way home, etc. "Things" can be replaced...people cannot.
Oh and I almost forgot! This is a photo from a TV station that shows 18 wheelers being tossed in the air like potato chips. Can you imagine the strength of the storm to toss around 2 ton vehicles?
One of the 12 ~
We're all counting our blessings tonight! Just had high winds, hail and lots of rain here. The sirens kept going off so Forrester and I stayed in the closet. :-)
Later, this was in order ~
