Shoffner, AR

Caption: Not sure what this thing is, it is at the old Shoffner Gin area in Shoffner. They were hit by a tornado last night. A Church was destroyed, nothing left of it. Notice the legs of this thing, just pulled them out of the ground.

As everyone has said Delana, a great shot. What is amazing is that something that high, in an area likely to cop a tornado, has such shallow foundations.

Another demonstration of the power of Nature. Glad you were not hurt. That video you posted earlier was very impressive. Must be very stressing to hear that siren full time and all that action going around. Glad to know you're safe ! DB

WOW, Delana! Great weather shot. I've had a lot of internet and phone problems, and wonder if it's connected to all this bad weather. Being without internet is small stuff, though, compared to the problems caused by all this strong weather! Be careful out there!

Yikes! That's just like the one down here at Damascus in the May 5, 2008 tornado! It took out a church, too. Weird. I love Arkansas, but the weather is rough. We had a death last night over in Scotland.

The power of Mother Nature unleashed upon us again. Amazing.

FYI-
The tilted thingy is a hopper used for loading trucks. The tall rectangular structure between the two tanks is probably a screw or scoop type conveyor. Funny the things one learns working in a water treatment plant, hm?
