The sun has come out, and I’ve had a chance to look around. The swarm came close, very close. Franklin Springs, the small town I live just outside of, was hit. It is the home of Emmanuel College, and the storm went right through the edge of campus. It spared the college’s buildings and students, but the fire station and city hall, right next door, had walls blown in. (You can see images here.)

The storm cotinued north, roughly following Highway 51 to the interstate. I saw several poultry houses flattened, large hay bales scattered, many, many trees down, and quite a few houses destroyed or damaged. I’ll have some pictures up when I can get to them.

Our place and our immediate neighbors places were spared.
