No Mercy

Looking up and down Highway 69 in Calhoun County, it looks like the tornadoes tripped over all of the homes, barely touching them.

Amelia Abbott says, "Never. I've never seen anything like this my whole life."

Everyone in Calhoun was either listening to the radio or watching TV to find out what was coming their way, including the Police Station.

June Carter says, "My daughter's husband called and said they'd been hit by a tornado. We lost power at the station, so then everything got wild."

Wannie Abbott adds, "I heard it coming, a loud rumbling. I got him up and we went into the hallway bathroom and that's where we stayed."

People here are grateful and anxiously waiting for the rain to stop so they can go outside and start picking up.

Amelia Abbott says, "I guess you just think it’s never going to happen to you or where you live. You just don't expect it."
