Tornado Aftermath: Safe and Sound in Marshalltown

in life •  2 months ago

Just checking in for all my friends on here that know I live in Marshalltown. We were hit by a massive F4 tornado last night, but luckily it skirted by our neighborhood. I've spent the morning working on some friends' houses with my football and tennis teams and we're slowly getting things cleaned up.

Thanks to our awesome first responders and early warning system, there were no fatalities. Here is a pretty incredible video taken off the storm ripping apart our courthouse.

Holy Crap!!!! Good to know there were no fatalities. Hopefully the property damage was not too bad under all the trees.

There was some, but nothing we can't fix

Least we could do.

So awesome to hear all the stories of everyone pulling together to rebuild a community. Way to teach your young athletes about whatbitnmeans to be part of a community and about citizenship. Well done!
