Day 29 – Tornado ?

Day 29 turned out to be one of the most interesting days so far . The day started off nice enough , warm and sunny , with rain moving in about 1pm. So decided to make it a laundry day . About an hour after getting home from that , all hell broke loose . ( cover photo is from my “ waiting for my laundry “ )

The sunny day quickly coming to an end as storm moves in .
About 5 minutes after sunny day video

It was not long after that , that I received an alert of a house hit by lightning video needed .

When a news agency need videos of something in my area , I get an alert and how much they will pay for each video I sell .

It was at this point when heading to the house , I found that driving to that area was impossible as a tornado was reported to have hit that area , police and trees blocking many roads .

Because of the rain , I did not risk taking my camera out for this , I used phone to do videos and photos , I didn’t capture half of the mess that I saw , mainly because traffic was being detoured all over . In the end , the storm knocked out my electricity from 3pm-9:30pm .

A few photos from the area which is about 5 minute drive from my house .

Trampolines blown over houses from back yards to front .

No injuries reported to the best of my knowledge, but a lot of damaged houses from fallen trees .
