I just got home from work and I’m pleasantly surprised with how much rain we got here. Picked up 3.55”.

Wasn’t expecting to come home to that.

Heartbreaking to see people’s homes like that.

I picked up 4.10”

Approximately the 6th or 7th biggest rain I’ve seen since moving here in 2005.

The worst thing is just how widespread the damage is,it isn't just a few blocks.This church roof and walls almost completely collapsed,and there are many homes with similar damage.May have been even a EF3.

Hoping for a speedy recovery for those effected by the tornado, the good news is we get a few days of drier weather, you hate to see it, tornadoes suck

I honestly thought there would be more tornadoes across the area today but it seems as if that one tornado made up for the lack of others. I’ve still yet to see a tornado in my life.

Cpv17 ws long as they occur over a field, tornadoes are pretty cool to look at, just not when its over a populated area
