Recent storms

The last days have seen severe weather hit Tennessee and the surrounding areas. Locally there have been thunder storms, repeated tornado watches and warnings, and flood warnings. Recently there have been lots of school closings, thousands of power outages, houses that have been damaged or destroyed, and loss of life. With the high volume of rain now there is concern of flash floods and that the Cumberland River will overflow. Just last year this river overflowed causing cities along its banks to become flooded and the famous scenes of Nashville being underwater.

Our thoughts and prayers are with those who have lost property and loved ones.

  1. My own family was affected by the tornado that passed through St. Louis the week before. Although there were no deaths, there was mass destruction of homes. I pray for all of the victims of the weather over the past few weeks and wish them hope and strength in the face of a long recovery.
