TWO INCREDIBLE FORCES

1. An F-4 Tornado.

With winds in excess of 230 mph,
these powerful cyclones can lift semi-trailers
like toy trucks, and tear houses from their foundations.
This St. Louis house lost its roof,
and incredibly its garage and kitchen
were totally blown away . . .
while its refrigerator was left standing,
door wide open with all its food left inside.

2. A community's helping hand.

An equally powerful force,
neighbors and church groups teamed up
to help those in need . . .
opening their doors to those left homeless,
providing food, shelter, clothing and a helpful hand.
At Zion Lutheran Church, the congregation
accumulated clothing, blankets, food and money
at an emergency shelter in their neighborhood.
Shelters and emergency help centers have
sprung up around the damaged communities.

It's hard to say
which force is most powerful.

  3. Both are very powerful forces with different results
    Negative and positive.....
    The positive is strongest, I think

  12. The destruction is heartbreaking. I can't believe how there are so many of these tornadoes all at once and in one area.

  13. Rick,
    You shows very well here, that almost everything in life, there are two sides to consider ... action and reaction!
    beautiful words,
    which are forces!
