 We are in the middle of remodeling a house in my hometown. I got a phone call first thing this morning tell me several houses near our new home had been destroye. We went to check for damage and ended up passing out supplies with the salvation army. I have never seen anything like this is my life.  I drove there worrying about my new home and left this afternoon crying for the people who lost everything. I am at home tonight counting my blessings!

These aren't the best pics... I took most of them out the window of a moving car. After talking to family members and some local residents I found out that Griffin does not have any tornado siresn (they were supposed to install them last year but due to budget cuts did not) most of these people also did not have power by the time the tornado hit so they had absolutely no warning.

These look like photos I took after Hurricane Andrew.

I live in ATL and I have seen some of the news coverage.  This is awful.
