Pensacola Tornado

10/19/07 UPDATE: See/read more at my daughter's blog.

Found this video clip (headsup... it has some strong language) tonight of one of the tornadoes that hit Pensacola today (more clips)



My daughter called me this morning as she was going to the store. A few minutes later around 11am, she called again saying that a tornado just hit and when she came outside, the parking lot was full of flipped cars!

We are thankful to God that her car only had one shattered window, still intact, and she wasn't hurt. It was still storming as it had been all morning as she drove away from the black sky which was away from her house. "I kept driving towards the light!" And eventually she make it home after passing down trees, broken telephone poles and flooded streets.

Amazingly, no one was seriously hurt in Pensacola that we know of at this time. Praise the Lord!

She was protected also when hurricane Ivan hit a few years ago. Her house was fine but where she was staying, that roof blew off in the middle of the night and they all had to seek shelter at a nearby church in the worse part of the storm. The damage afterwards was horrendous as some houses were simply gone! Sadly, there was also loss of life in Ivan.

Proverbs 18:10 says "The name of the LORD is a strong tower: the righteous runneth into it, and is safe."

May we always put our trust in the Lord Jesus Christ alone!
