Any one heard from Phillip Smith???

Recommended Posts

Just curious if anyone has heard from Phillip Smith. He lives in the near the area that was hit yesterday by the storms in Tuscaloosa Alabama. I tried to call his number but it was not working. I know that the power is out to the majority of the area so I'm sure the phones are out as well.

Prayers are with everyone effected by the storms.

Hopefully he will check in soon. I saw that video of the twister on the news this morning, scary stuff. Godspeed to the folks of Alabama.

I spoke with Bill Loden, he is about an hour south of me near Huntsville, AL. He said that they are fine but have been told they will be without power for around two weeks. He was out rounding up generators to help family and friends.

I just saw video shot from a helicopter over Phillips previous home town, Tuscaloosa. Holy crap. I hope he wasn't anywhere near the path of that tornado.

I also saw video of my sister-in-law's town of Ringgold, GA. They live on a hill overlooking the town. She slept through it, but her family watched the tornado level much of the town. Her kids' schools are just gone.

Well the good news is I am OK. There is a lot of folks here that is not.

No power or phones and it took out one of the phone tower for the cell phones.

Small one about half mile above. I live in the upper part of the county, so I was 15 miles away from the main one.

I still haven't heard from my friends in the area it hit.

I am at McDonald's drinking coffee and checking the site along with emailing a report. I got to find a place where I can print it.

Hi Phillip,

I'm glad to hear you are OK. I'd gone to bed last night planning to google you this morning and try to come up with a cell phone number to start trying. Woke up to good news.

Hope this is the last time this happens this year, and for the next hundred, thosefolks down there sure don't need any more of this.

ONE TEAM - ONE FIGHT!!!

Mike

I put it on a post-it slip and stuck it on the wall of the woman's rest room down at the bowling alley. Hope that helps![;)]

What do you need, besides a power plant? If anything?

My needs are little compared to the folks that lost everything.

The power company is working hard to get the power back up and running. I live about a mile from the schools and they got our power back on last night.

My heart goes out to the ones that are in need
