13. I'm in Iowa...
...and a man in Parkersburg was just interviewed on the local news.

He said that he heard the sirens, told his family to go to the basement, and then he went out on the deck.

He said everything got dark and he heard the "freight train" and he tore down into the basement. They
then heard total destruction above their heads and 30 seconds later they emerged from downstairs to

All that remained of their house was two partial walls. The rest was completely gone.

It's thundering and lightning here and we have storm warnings. I'm just north of Des Moines, and it
looks like we might be ok.

I never sleep until stuff like this passes. With young kids in the house, I watch the radar all night.

Thoughts and prayers to those enduring the aftermath.
