Tornado Disasters in Flyover Country – Wanna Help?

U.S. News – At least 28 killed in Indiana, Kentucky, Ohio as tornadoes sweep Midwest, South.

Tornadoes damage Missouri, Southern Illinois, Kansas killing 9

You know what happens when the disasters are here in FLYOVER COUNTRY.
These survivors will be picking themselves up.
Ya, we heard the screaming sirens Down on the Pharm, and the storms passed on either side of us.
We’ve had our own little tornado before, which did a right angle around the Pharmhouse and tore up trees and flipped outbuildings. But that was NOTHING compared to the disasters linked above. The towns are trashed and people are dead.
Pharmer found the closest Catholic Church with a website to two of the most flattened areas, Henryville and Marysville, Indiana. You know your $$$$$$ won’t get wasted IF YOU SEND IT TO ST. MICHAELS. It’s connected to St. Francis Church which is ground zero of the Henryville disaster and they’re using the basement as a shelter.
AAA TORNADO DISASTER RELIEF link will stay on the sidebar.

*Fr Steven Schaftlein, pastor of both parishes, says the ‘best address to send help is St. Michael, 101 St. Michael Drive, Charlestown, IN 47111′, and he’s very appreciative of everyone’s efforts to assist.

* Update in Henrysville. Life on Sunday.

FEMA Denials to Tornado Struck Homeowners: Insufficient Damage

Broken Bible Belt: Homes in Ruins From Tornadoes Denied Aid by FEMA for ‘Insufficient Damage’ | The Blaze.

This is priceless:  a look at an Alabama  home which FEMA considers “not unsafe to live in” and insufficiently damaged to be eligible for grants to rebuild. Jonathan Stewart received a letter based on a FEMA inspection stating just that.

This home owner has since found out that his insurance coverage will allow him to rebuild.  In other words, he had planned ahead sufficiently, and really would be better off without government assistance.  FEMA  could screw that up as badly as they did the home evaluation.
