So, actually my best friend and her family were in their car and were picked up and thrown over a house. The driver was thrown out of the vehicle and the 2 passengers were still in the vehicle. One suffered a broken arm and leg, while the other has minor cuts and bruises. We still have no update on the driver. Please pray for this family.


Can't get a hold of my sister who lives near the lake off CR 34721. Anyone know if the storm passed over there?
