April 2011 Tornadoes

Recently I was speaking at a church and described our experience of having responded to a number of storms across the U.S. but how it is different when the storm comes to you. That recollection made me think of two videos.

The first video was shot by two of my sons of some of the damage around DeKalb County, Alabama.

The second video was shot by a friend of mine and shows the formation of what would become the largest tornado that hit our county that day--and EF5--that destroyed hundreds of homes and took the lives of 35 people.

The church where we were members at the time, Grace Presbyterian Church in Fort Payne, ministered to our neighbors for the next 16 months.

Watching these videos still give me chill bumps.
