I have to make this very quick due to my phone being almost dead and no way to charge it so sorry for the grammar.
as you probably read, tornados ripped through the Midwest today at about 12-3 pm roughly.
First and foremost, and seeing the damage firsthand, my prayers go out to everyone affected. A co-worker of mines aunt lost their new house and
everything and their wedding was yeaterday, and that's only a tiny portion.
I live about 10 miles away from where the most of the damage happened. The town that got hit hard is called Washington Illinois, and driving through
there almost everyday, it's almost un recognizable in some places.
I've heard reports that a power generator was completely destroyed and that power will be out for the SURRONDING area for a few days.
I also work at a grocery store, and just today alone we lost nearly all of our meat and frozen products and i can see a vast majority of the food
being spoiled by the team the power kicks back on.
I'm sorry for the poorly written post, but I'm trying to conserve energy and battery life on everything.
The area I live in experienced a large F5 tornado years back that leveled a steel mill named parsons, but this is one of the first times an actual
residency has taken the main blow from Mother Nature.
It's pretty surreal because I've read of the 'power grid shutdown excercises' evidently happening around this time, and I'll be the first to say,
a 'shtf' scenario would not be fun and it's not what Hollywood says it is.
I hope all those affected have shelter for the night, I know local colleges are offering shelter so reach out if you've been affected.
Today has been a dark day for the Midwest.
