  • We do. Our tornado sirens were going off all night last night, and we had to move everyone to the lower level of our apartment. It was no fun, and pretty scary. It's the closest we've come in a while to actually being in a tornado.

  • No I do not. I have friends here on CM that do though. I have not heard from them yet so I don't know how they are doing. We had high winds but nothing like what those poor people suffered.

  • No but a friend does with her young family and I haven't heard from her, and I don't know if her extended family has either, based on stuff on her facebook :( I found out that they had a LOT of them right around where she lives.

  • Yep... I live in Stockbridge GA ( about 15 minutes south of Atlanta). We had several touch down a few miles from brother lives in Chatsworth GA and his house was hit right after they went to work and my niece went to school on Wednesday morning. Thankfully, the damage was not horrible...Ringgold is not far from my brother's house and it was decimated... Griffin is about 10 minutes down the road from us and it was destroyed..they were all around us, but we were not affected. I'm not quite sure how we were left unscathed.

  • yes one went through my town and we all agree we were pretty blessed to still be here. it was really scary to me, cause storms kept coming in one after another for the state of arkansas and alabama and many others, well not yesteryday the day before, i was so worried my dogs didnt make it cause my dh couldnt get to them but they were safe and sound when i got home . please keep us all in your thoughts or prayers many are still without.i believe redcross is taking donations.
