After we get 3 tornado warnings we are in our basement.
Our neighbors come over because . . . we have a basement.
My wife calls our daughter, she is like, "big woop".
5 minutes later she dives into her pantry, dragging her petrified dog.

The storm hit around noon. These pictures were taken around 5:00 PM the next day.

At least 4 vehicles ended up with "tree damage".

Many of the trees got snapped off 20'-30' up in the air. Look up to the right of that house.

There were at least 10 tree crews cutting and chipping debris in just this neighborhood.
Here is another house with wind damage.

These two cars are just across the street from my daughter's house.
The owner was just about to move the cars when it hit. He was lucky.

Behind my daughters house.  Notice the broke off trees high to the right of the house.
They had a little roof damage and the rear window of her car got blown out.
Not back side, the big one in the rear. The interior got soaked.

This house covered in blue tarp.  The sign says Providence Restoration.
The white truck (w/red tail light only) had just left that house after getting the work and leaving the sign.
I let him merge in front of us and he turned down the next side street to drum up more work.
See the broken tree.

4 or 5 trees snapped off right above the police car.
We are driving home through Matthews.

Closer view. Trees down everywhere, left and right side of the road.
The pictures do not do it justice.
This is a mile or two from my daughter's house.
