    Sending out prayers to any and all affected by the devastation caused by the tornadoes in the triad area of NC these past few days, and all areas that were involved. If any of our quilters are/were in those areas, our thoughts go out to you.

    Last night, MimiSharon reported that a little 4 year old was badly injured in base housing at Camp Lejuene. Housing was torn apart by the twisters.

    My heart breaks for all the weather devastations around the world and I am so grateful that the storm was just tail winds near me. But, there is a possibility of tornadiac actions in this area today. So thanks for the prayers and keep them aloft, please. Blessings, Ruth

    I can't believe the weather and how horrible it's been for some people. I pray everyone is safe.

    My prayers go out to all those in the Carolina area. I could not believe the devestation in this one moble home park. The homes were totally demolished. This whole world is having such extreme weather changes and every year it gets more severe. I pray for those who were affected by this Tornado.

    I thought the exact same thing (sending prayers) when I heard of the devastation in NC. God Bless you all! Edie

    My cousin lives in Snow Hill N.C. and they lost EVERYTHING
    they own. We went up to help them go through and see if we could find any personal items. When I saw it all I could do was cry. It was awful. They were in the house at the time and when it was over they were all that was left. Right where they sit down in the hall the wall they were up against was all that was left standing. They didn't get hurt. It even pulled the tile up out of the kitchen floor. He also lost his shop a truck was damaged and two cars.

    Someone from the QB (that would be you, libthekwltr) sent me a nice note of caring and nice thoughts (plus prayers if needed) because they saw that I lived in north central NC. Well, the good news is that although we got huge winds and rain, no damage or injuries just lots of branches down. The bad news is that almost two dozen people were killed and a number of houses were damaged or destroyed! And it wasn't in just one location but rather scattered around the different counties. Heard on the news this morning that NC is now on the top of the list for the number of tornadoes received. I hope never to see or hear one! Weather is scary sometimes and the worse part is that there is not a thing we can do about it .... except to try to be prepared just in case!!!

    I have family in Midway Park, North Carolina and they got hit. My cousins home was destroyed. No one was hurt Thank the Lord. My cousin and her kids and husband happened to be over at my Aunt and Uncles house when the tornado hit. So they will be staying there for awhile. They lived in a mobile home which is not a good thing. They should outlaw mobile homes in areas that are prone to hurricanes and tornados. I am really thankful that they are okay.

    My cousins mobile home after the tornados hit.

    I live only less than 10 minute drive where on in Alamance county hit. We are 1 hour away from Raleigh where alot was also done there. Sat I was driving on a road only about 3 miles from the area in Alamance at the time it hit. Did not know it was in that area. Just drove in high winds and rain. It is scary now to think about it. But I was so blessed not to be in the middle of it.

    Tonight’s news showed even more update of the destruction and loss. I pray for all in that area and other states that have been hit so hard. Watching the news video made me hold my breath.

    I am so hurt for these people, could have been me and mine. The 11 news tonight said not to move anything, leave everything right where it is so the adjusters can access it ALL. Just cover it. you want to recover your personal data and needs. gee, They'd be covering me, I'm sure. I just can't seem to get a grip. I sent Red Cross a little but a little is all I have and prayer, too. Boy, have I prayed.

    My prayer is that God meets all the needs in NC. and the areas in the USA where homes and businesses were destroyed. My grandson is engaged to a girl from Colerain who lost three in her family. May Gods richest Blessings be on that family and all others who lost family, had family injured and all who lost homes.

    Didn't hear about Camp Legune--I am from Sanford and you can go to WRAL website and see what we got.

    Lowes Hardware destroyed, Tractor Supply, and St. Andrew's Subdivision.

    We really got hit.

    Love and prayers to all that need it.

    Carol from NC
