An EF-3 Tornado’s Aftermath

On our way home from the NRA Annual Meeting we passed through Glade Spring, VA on Interstate 81. They had been hit by an EF-3 tornado about 1am Thursday morning. I have seen the aftermath of a tornado on TV but never in person. You just can’t comprehend the devastation until you see it up close and personal.

We took the pictures below on the west side of I-81. Unfortunately, we weren’t able to get clear pictures of the east side. Over there a huge truck stop had been destroyed along with many of the 18-wheelers.

The Bristol Courier Herald has survivors’ stories here along with more on this storm here.
