Yesterday at around 5 PM, a tornado went through our area......actually less than 3/4 mile from our home. Two photos from from the Rome-News Tribune website show damage to buildings a couple of streets over from our house.
The screen shot from Mapquest shows how close it was to our home.
Thank God, as far as I know, no one living nearby was seriously injured. We were not at home when the storm hit. We learned of the tornado over the radio. We were uncertain what we'd find when we arrived home. Thankfully, there was absolutely no damage to our house and property. No trees were blown over.....it looked like it had only been a heavy rain.
