I apologize for the delay of normal posts–it has been a very hectic and stressful two days. I was visiting family in my hometown on Monday, April 28 when the devastating storm hit Louisville, Mississippi hard…very hard. An EF4 tornado ripped through my little hometown leaving behind piles of sticks, mangled rubble, and slabs where houses used to be…it was a destruction in the likes of which I have never seen…and hope to never witness again.
Driving into town today was very emotional–seeing the place where I grew up in shambles was heartbreaking. When I topped the hill and witnessed the first of the damage in the Louisville Country Club/South Church Street area…I cried–squalled like a little baby. All of this is difficult for me to talk about because I have not had time to fully process everything…but what I can tell you is that when I said, “It is good to see you today”…it was truly good to see you today.
Due to limited internet and cell service here, I will keep this blog brief. So, here are a few photos from the damage in town today–to see more photos and updates, please visit my social media below.
