Pray for Oklahoma and Arkansas

Just looking at the news this morning and the devastation is unreal. Let's pray for the folks out there.

As for our forum subject, it looks like Mayflower RV took a direct hit while I've seen multiple pics along I-40 thas show RV wreckage. The first pic below are TTs at Mayflower RV. In the second pic you'll see RV plumbing, wheels and axles along I-40. Hope none of our FRF friends were involved.

It's horrible. I have family (sister, cousins) in those areas and am trying to get in contact with everyone.

I also saw this pic of another RV on I-40. I also hope none of these pics are of anyone in our FRF family and friends.

Son, DIL, and GS in Arkansas (over near Hope). trying to text them now, they haven't posted to their facebook pages since Saturday, which could simply mean no power.

Current headline on FOX is: 6 fatalities in Alabama

Prayers for those in the areas being hit SO hard right now.

We survived - had some leaves and small branches/spanish moss to clean up.

Feeling pretty sorry for those less fortunate though - Pensacola FL is getting slammed with rain and I saw where a whole trailer park was wiped out in Limestone County AL

Please also put the folks here in Mississippi on the prayer list. I have heard at least 12 have been killed and there are some people whose whereabouts are unknown. That news right there is a horrible thing. It is very strange to be sitting in your house with family and in a matter of seconds, you don't know where other family members are. I speak from experience from riding out a tornado in 1998. Only lasted a few seconds but felt like a lot longer.

My uncle, who lives on crescent lake in Pensacola woke up find a sea-doo, still attached to the trailer, sitting in his backyard. Along with tons of other debris. The lake flooded about 8-10' above normal, then blew out the levee dam and drained across a major highway. Cars washed off into ditches. Lots of damage in Pensacola area.

Yeah P'Cola got slammed pretty bad as well Got a few messages from friends down there this morning - the rain has stopped and the sun is out -- but some places down there got over 22" of rain in a 24 hr period!

Here is a phone photo of a friend's motorhome...sheesh!
