Tell me about it......I just had to call my wife cause I thought that was her SUV when I saw the pics. She goes through that way sometimes work.

WOW! I'm thinking they will find a few more fatalities. It's sad.
I wonder how it happened. Looks like a tornado went through there!

Yeah my wife is like 3 hours late, though I didnt see her car she hasn't called and I can't get a hold of her on her phone.....She just walked in, nevermind.
