A few weeks ago I reported on a tornadic storm that went southwest of us by about 70 miles. It put down a tornado that stayed on the ground on and off for about 40 minutes and it hit the outskirts of Hammon.
Last weekend we were in Hammon for a festival and as we drove down the highway I suddenly spotted this home. My reaction "Oh my god! What happened to that house?!"
The Hubster immediately realised it was on the track of the tornado and had taken a direct hit, it was quite a sight and more than a little sobering when you live here.
You can see from the pattern of the glass left in the windows, how it was just blown outwards. But most amazing of all, you can tell the bricks were literally individually sucked off the timber frame!
And then there's that tree stump on the right that was just snapped off. Yet the satellite dish appears to be unharmed, despite all the bricks from the wall just behind it having completely gone! This clearly demonstrates the craziness that is a tornado and this is 'my world' I chose to live in!
