Tragedy in Kansas

In case you have not heard, a powerful tornado ripped through Kansas last night and destroyed a small town. My thoughts and prayers go out to those that were affected by the tornado.

I saw, that is just horrible. A whole town nearly destroyed. My thoughts and prayers are with those poor folks as well.

I have traveled through Kansas a lot, although not through this particular town. The pictures and video I've seen were just devastating. I am keeping the town and people in my prayers.

One time while I was driving through Kansas, it thunderstormed so hard that I was actually afraid. We don't get storms with that intensity here at all. Another time the sun shone very brightly while it just poured down rain. I could not even see to pull off the highway and when it stopped raining, I was glad to see that I was indeed pulled off - with a huge tractor trailer right behind me. Thank goodness he saw me, because I couldn't see anything. I've enjoyed my travels through Kansas, but it seems like every trip has a weather story associated with it.

They said roughly 95% of the town was destroyed.

It has now been classified as an F5.
