A Good Story

I came across this fellow in Pleasant Grove this evening; he lost everything, but was so happy to find his dog alive buried under the rubble of his home this afternoon.

    Thats so great !

  3. gabe says:

    A little off topic here….I believe that the high risk used by SPC is a little over-used to the point that possibly people don’t take it as serious anymore.
    I firmly agree with the high risk…however only use it for extreme cases like the 99 oklahoma outbreak or the nashville tornado outbreak…or sadly the 2011 outbreak….for instance high risk was used over arkansas(and rightly so) on the 26th and it was horrible in arkansas but it was no where near the devestation that happened the 27th…so possibly people didn’t take it that serious……If they are going to keep using high risk the way they have been than there should be another category called “extreme”…which is what happened in Alabama…and what happened in Murfreesboro TN in 2008 and the Nashville outbreak …those were extreme cases…and i think people should be warned in a category of ‘EXTREME’

    Really, gabe? There is a time and place and this uplifting post is not it. Your comments have nothing to do with this story.

  6. coolsl88 says:

    Dude are you kiddin me? The guy just found his best friend and you gonna be all negative and trash the SPC? That should be a personal email to James….not a comment to a piece of good news…your comment should be deleted and you should be ashamed.

    So, Matt, what is it I am looking at on that picture? Bunch of dots, and arrows but what does it mean?

  8. matt says:

    lynn d… if you look closey you can see the tornado tracks from tusc. to bham and one through bibb well you can see several of them…and sorry for posting that on here… know it doesn’t have anything to do with the vid.

    Geez Gabe…REALLY??? Twice a year…AT MOST…really doesn’t sound like something that’s “over-used” to me. Maybe TWICE a year is something YOU consider an extravagance, but I think most would agree with me…

    James, thanks for this story. I’m an Alabamian who now lives in France and my mom sent me the link to the blog. I grew up listening to your weather reports and I’m glad I can see what’s happening in my home state via this blog. It’s so tragic but I know my state has a big heart and is generous. They’ll do their best to rebuild.

    What a great story! We all need a good story in this horrible tragedy. Also, it was good to hear that this young man could have possibly been responsible for saving the lives of several of his neighbors by alerting them of the tornado and having them take cover in the hallway of his home. What a great neighbor! So glad he got his dog back!
