Use Caution After a Natural Disaster

Who would have known that the tornado going over a house might cause the water to be pushed out of the toilet and onto the floor of the bathroom (our safe room) where we went to hide from the dangerous winds and pressure.


If the electric had not been knocked out, by the winds downing our pole, then the act of switching on the light around 7 years ago, in Saginaw TX, while unknowingly standing in an inch of water, might have been my last act on this earth. God did not call me home that day, but do others know of this danger?

That's definitely something we don't think about and God was definitely watching out for you and your family that day! Thanks for sharing your story with us!

Some of you may have heard about the terrible tornado that affected Parkersburg, Iowa a year ago. A man in town could not find his dog afterwards. Someone told him a farmer 3 miles from town found a dog wedged in the rafters of what looked to him like a garage. The farmer called the man (because he had dog tags on with his phone number) to say he had his dog. The man assumed he meant the dog was dead. But imagine his surprise when he went to pick him up! The dog survived without a scratch on him! Tornadoes do some weird things.
