We just got back a couple of hours ago from our next door town. A tornado rated as a F4 (F5 is the worst) hit the community around 4 Sunday afternoon. There has been 4 confirmed deaths, but I don't think they know for sure how many may actually be dead. The search and rescue dogs came in around 10 in the evening. There is about a 5 block wide swath running through the south end of town, where everything is GONE! Houses are completely leveled, trees are stripped completely bare of leaves and branches. It destroyed the new Fire Station and the High School.

Our Fire Department got called out to assist in the search opertions. I have NEVER seen such destruction in my whole life!

Please keep the Parkersburg community in your thoughts and prayers!

Thank God for people like you and your husband who are willing to drop what they are doing and give help and support to people in need.   I am so sorry to hear about the lost families and homes, you are all in my prayers.

Bless you Jami and all the volunteers how do such wonderful work.

Jami, my thoughts and prayers go out to all those who were in the path of the tornadoes that have been reeking havoc over there - been watching CNN and seeing the awful devastation.

We spent all day, Memorial Day up in Parkersburg with the Fire Department helping with clean-up efforts.

They changed the tornado to an EF5, which is the worst there is. There are 5 confirmed deaths in Parkersburg, 7 total for this particular tornado.

We were with a friend yesterday when she saw her home for the first time...actually what was left of her home. We helped find her some decent shoes and a few momentos that she was worried about. All we could do was just hug her...so sad! The descruction is just unbelievable! It looks like a bomb went off in that community.

Please continue to keep these people in your thoughts and prayers.

Jami

A friend sent me this link to pictures of the destruction at Parkersburg, Sinclair and New Hartford. The tornado was on the ground for over 45 miles...Parkersburg to New Hartford is about 10 miles.
