My entire neighborhood looks like a disaster zone.
Cars are flipped upside down and houses are in bits and pieces.
The gas station, firehouse, bank office and the elementary school have been reduced to rubble. A few days ago, an F3 tornado hit our town and demolished half of the farms, buildings, businesses, and homes. My home was one of the casualties. My family and I were in the house, but we had warning and we got to a safe location in the basement. The kitchen and the living room are the only parts left inside the house. The streets are filled with garbage and debris from the trees and homes. I got up early this morning in a hotel room, because my home is gone. I decided to take a walk around town. I needed to see the damage with my own eyes. I saw hundreds of trees broken in half and mailboxes scattered all over the streets. One thing that caught my eye was an outdoor AC unit. The AC unit was still attached to the hurricane proof pad. I guess the winds must have been extreme, because the entire AC and pad was sitting in the middle of main street. After more searching, I noticed a lot different heating and cooling equipment laying around the streets. Entire living room sets and bedroom furniture lined the streets. It was the worst disaster that I have seen in fifty years and I thank god that my family and I all survived. Others weren’t so lucky when the tornado touched down.
