Many of my extended family live in southern Indiana/northern Kentucky. My parents both grew up in Henryville, the small town which was devastated by two tornadoes, one an F4 which is defined as having winds up to 200 mph. Aunts and uncles and cousins of mine live in Henryville. Time.com has a piece here with a few of the stories coming out. Elaine Dietrich Thoms is my cousin.. her house was leveled by the tornado, as was her parents' home (my aunt and uncle) and her brother John and his family's home. Everyone survived with no injuries except for Martin (my cousin John's son-in-law mentioned later in the Time article) who has a broken shoulder but is doing well. They all say they feel grateful they are alive.
We hear the news through another cousin of mine who lives in Louisville... "Houses have been rented, and we will rebuild!"
Donations to the American Red Cross would be much appreciated.
