    Midwest tornadoes

    Those of you who live in the US may have seen in the news that tornadoes struck Indiana, Kentucky, Ohio, Alabama and Georgia Friday. We are accustomed to having lots of tornadoes come through here each year but rarely any as severe as the one that struck Friday. One hit Henryville, Indiana, which is about 15 miles north of my house. Most of Henryville, as well as nearby Marysville, were wiped out. There have been 39 total deaths from the tornadoes including a whole family of 5 that were all killed, one of which was a toddler who was found in a field Friday. She died today.

    In Henryville, all 3 schools (elementary, middle and high school) were destroyed.

    It's been a very difficult weekend for all of us who live near there.

    Please keep them all in your thoughts and prayers.

    As an Oklahoman I certainly know how bad it can be. Best wishes.

    My inlaws are from Indiana. My thoughts and prayers go to the families of those areas.

    I don't watch the news on TV, so I just learned about the tornadoes last night. Sending my thoughts and prayers to all.

    They hit here in MO and IL the Wed before, with 13 dead. It's very close to home. I love spring, but hate the tornadoes that come with it. Many sleepless nights. We always go into our basement when they are predicted. My fear is one coming when we are asleep. My heart goes out to all.

    I remember how scary it was to be living in WI in a small house with no basement. My heart goes out to that community.

    Here's an interview the TODAY show did yesterday with Stephanie Decker from Marysville, In, about 18 miles north of me. Stephanie lost part of one leg and the foot on her other leg while protecting her children when the tornado destroyed their home. What a hero.
