Thoughts and prayers LA

I'm not sure if this is the right place to start this thread but I feel it needs to be done. While watching the news they stated one of worst tornadoes in Louisiana history tore through an RV park not sure of the name of the park. Two people lost their lives doing what we all love to do and countless others were injured many severely. So let's all send our thoughts and prayers out to those families which is part of this family in a way.

Quotes from someone who is there..."We ok. We were in Poche. Sugar Hill about 5 miles up river were hit hard. 2 are dead. Lots of our guys in there. Campers destroyed win trucks. All we know are ok. It is still early though. Thanks for asking. I was going to post but rather hectic here." and from the same person..." One of our guys at work leg is broke. Happened at rv park disaster. We have over 100 on night shift. Less than half came in tonight. They were at Sugar Hill. Lots of dayshift is too. Haven't heard from all of them. DW very shook up. This was just too close. We heard it go by our park."

When you see the devastation, it is a wonder that there weren't more than two fatalities. Here is a link with news video from the RV park.

Several shelters have been set up but only 10-15 people using them. We have feeding trailers on standby in case the shelters fill up, but not expected at this time. 1000s without power but most will be restored today with the nice weather allowing crews to work. Chain saw crews have been alerted but not activated yet. We have assessment guys on the ground this morning ad may get called out today.

Praying for those still missing, may those who lost their lives rest in peace and those who survived be blessed with quick healing.
