Oh hunny good luck, that's all I can tell you. I live in southern Illinois and that storm came through here today and everything is destroyed. Our university is closed because of major major damage all the malls are closed, the schools have major damage and will be closed for a while. All of our interstates are closed down because of all the trees and power poles and line down. Pretty much you can't go anywhere within a 100 mile radius or it's just destruction.  All the towns have issued 7pm curfews to keep people inside until everything can be cleaned up and safe again. I wish you and your loved ones the best and hope that everything turns out fine for you guys. Just be cafeful.
