    Default Tornadoes in Kansas -- prayers please

    Hi guys -- No, I'm not asleep. Have been watching TV, pretty much stunned...it's been an awful, awful night for some of my fellow Kansans. A long-track tornado went through our state, beginning early Friday evening (a few other storms in the state, too, but not like this one). One storm containing one tornado, massive at times. Warnings did not end until almost 3:00 a.m. Saturday morning. Greensburg was hit the hardest, some other towns with damage, too. But Greensburg has hundreds of folks who were hurt or displaced. So much destruction. So many folks hurt. A terrible, terrible mess and many who are surely needing some prayers and comfort. Please pray for my fellow Kansans going through this time, and as they continue through the next several weeks and months. One thing about it, though...there are many, many people, both emergency personnel and otherwise, who are responding to the calls for help...many surrounding counties, even from Oklahoma. Just keep all these folks in your prayers...especially once the sun comes up and we find out really how bad it was.

    Default The latest....

    Latest: Total destruction in Greensburg (100%)...much damage in several other towns. Tornado was on the ground for over 5 hours, a near 100 mile path, more than a mile wide at times. The storm began south of there near Protection (almost to OK/KS border). Yes, Greensburg had warning, the sirens went off, but as massive and destructive as the tornado was, well........ I know this town well from people I knew through my ex's family...lovely, friendly people, beautiful little town. The TV channels here are doing continuous coverage ( www.kwch.com - we watch this one, www.ksn.com, www.kake.com ).

    A good portion of the state is under the gun again today. You can practically cut the air with a knife right now, it's so muggy. Even our town is eerily quiet right now...everyone is glued to their TVs...reminds me of the complete and total quiet the morning of 9/11.

    Yes, I'm staying safe...been in enough tornadoes myself to know what to do - or not do. Have actually been in a couple...freaky, scary things. And to think I used to be a storm spotter.

    Dear Lord, please be with my fellow Kansans across the state, especially those hit hardest and those helping.

    This is absolutely horrible. My thoughts and prayers are definitely with these people and their families. There just seems to be more and more disasters lately.

    I think the country is all praying for Kansas this morning. So sorry to hear about those who have lost so much. Glad to hear that you are safe and praying for those who are not.
