Twisters Came Down

North Texas was hit with at least 3 tornados yesterday. Thankfully, there were no fatality and no one got seriously hurt. That’s amazing considering that 800 houses were damaged and in the city of Forney alone, at least 20 homes were completely destroyed.

We were very blessed to not be in the paths of any of the tornados. The closest one to us was the one in Arlington, which is about 20 minutes to the south of us. For the most part, we got off pretty easy. We got some really heavy, heavy rain, but no hail.

My heart goes out to those who have lost their homes. I can’t even begin to imagine what it’s like to lose everything so suddenly - to come home to a pile of crumpled concrete and wood.

This is the one in Forney which was the one farthest from us and caused the most damage. Picture from
