Friday night terrible storms blew through where I live on the Peninsula of Hampton Roads. Less than 5 miles from my home a tornado tore through. We were at the bowling alley and heard the fierce storms and were safe. There was a festival going on at the time and everyone made it to safety thanks to fast thinking of people near the pier. No one was injured.... no one was killed. A long time friend of mine survived and he was working at a hotel where it struck right outside. They assess the damage at 4.3 million dollars.
Please pray for the families of Hampton that lost their homes and businesses as they rebuild.
As for me ,my backyard is in Hampton....just not Downtown where this tornado was seen approaching from the water.
Thank You, God for watching after this community,
