While at work today, a huge tornado passed through the western suburb of Jackson (Clinton). Video is here:

We work downtown and live north of town, so unless we have some fallen trees, I think we will have no damage.

In another weather-related incident this morning, my son in law's father was killed and his mother's arm broken when their car hydroplaned and flipped as they ran into the storm while headed to Arkansas to visit my daughter and SIL. Their 2 small dogs were also killed in the accident, while, fortunately my SIL's sister and her child were unharmed.

Gonna be a sad weekend.........

    Sorry to hear about your family's loss.

    Is it my imagination or are you guys in Mississippi getting a lot of really bad weather the last few years. Sure seems that you are getting more than your share.

    Sorry to hear about that.Driving in bad weather is allways risky, even if you have good equipment and drive right that doesn't mean that the other people on the highway do.

    Thanks to everyone in the "Forum Family" for the prayers and condolences.

    My son-in-law who lives in Hot Springs, AR is also a Forum member (OleMissRN).

    Correction on the accident - someone else hydroplaned and hit his parent's car head on. His father was crushed by the steering column. I met them all in our hospital after they were transferred here from the small rural hospital. His mother has a serious arm fracture and a couple of broken ribs. Miraculously no other injuries. His sister has minor hand and foot fractures. Everyone is doing as well as can be expected under the circumstances.

    Thanks again for the prayers and concern.
