One Year Anniversary of Washington, Illinois Tornado

It is hard to believe a year has passed since the tornadoes that swept through Illinois on a November Sunday morning. Devastation was everywhere. It was hard to comprehend exactly what had happened.

Much progress has been made though, and cities like Washington, Illinois are rebuilding and coming back stronger than ever. People have been helping people ever since that day and God is doing some great things in this community.

This short video is from this morning’s prayer service in Washington.

Harrisburg Tornado – Disaster Relief

The deadly tornado that ripped through Harrisburg and other southern Illinois communities the morning of February 29th left a large path of destruction in its wake.

For those who haven’t seen the aftermath, I have included a few photos in an attempt to illustrate just how much damage was caused by this monster of a storm.

As of right now, the Federal Emergency Management Agency has decided to deny disaster aid to the southern Illinois counties that were impacted by this storm.

If you are able to help the people of Harrisburg and the surrounding areas, please visit http://ready.illinois.gov/ for donation and volunteer information. Thank you.
