Local Business Plant
10 AM our little town was hit by a massive Tornado 1st you make sure your family is fine, then you start to check on your neighbors and you look around and see this. You are scared to death and dont know what to do. Then you find out everyone made it but 1 person. Now what do you do? Our water tower took a big hit so no water to drink. Electric power lines are down poles snap like toothpick. You see destruction every where you turn. What to do crying is not the answer you need a plan. What can you do? I walked the Neighborhood with our watch group after I got information from The Red Cross and CERT Members.5
