A Tornadic Supercell devastates the South, my community & the morning after video-footage

We’ve been in Tennessee for 12 months, and this was the first time I felt it necessary to go underground, and it’s a great prayer place.

“So persecute them with thy tempest, and make them afraid with thy storm.” – Psalm 83:15

It was not an average tornado as we’ve previously experienced. It was part of a Tornadic Supercell that created simultaneous chaos and fatal devastation among multiple States. 

I was monitoring and assisting with Emergency Communications on Ham Radio. This was the first tornado I experienced at the highest level of threat. The lowest being an alert, then a watch, then a warning, but this alert announced a tornado “emergency.”

“The Lord is slow to anger but great in power; the Lord will never leave the guilty unpunished. His path is in the whirlwind and storm, and clouds are the dust beneath his feet.” – Nahum 1:3

The aftermath.

There’s much more damage that I did not video. But due to nails and debris, I did not want to drive into those areas. Our home and our immediate neighbors were untouched. But many homes in the surrounding areas were devastated. The tornado not only demolished some homes but also cleaned up the debris for the owners. In other words, they don’t even need a clean-up. I hear conflicting stories about fatalities in our town, but at the time of this blog post, here is a preliminary report for our County alone.

  • 7 fatalities
  • 50+ persons missing
  • 59 homes in one city are totally gone, and many more are destroyed or damaged
  • An unknown number of people were rescued and hospitalized

These tornados do not discriminate. Even the historical mansion on the hill owned by Waylon Jennings is “gone.” And the spooky thing is, most of us never even saw the tornado.

“Behold, a whirlwind of the Lord is gone forth in fury, even a grievous whirlwind: it shall fall grievously upon the head of the wicked.” – Jerimiah 23:19

Moreover, as I stated regarding the recent tornado in Mississippi. God is sovereign, the tornados manifest His power and glory. His holy hand is on the thermostat, He decrees the degrees and these storms, and a greater storm that is apocalyptic in nature is coming. Fear God, keep His Commandments, repent towards Him, believe, and obey His Gospel, thrusting yourselves upon Christ for salvation.
