Everything is fine in Tampa. It was stormy all night, but not much if any lightning. I guess the front got re-engergized once it past Tampa/St. Petersburg area.

I am fine and I know Brad is good, but I've had trouble contacting Don. I know that Titusville got hit hard also, so I'm a bit worried...

Over here in Deland, where I work, there was serious damage. Two of my workers are from SE Lake county and they both had their places trashed by a tornado. One employee'* husband and child are still missing (not found yet). She sufferred a broken collor bone and a serious beating, as did her oldest son. She called in from the hospital and told me that they heard it coming and layed down on the floor of the trailer (yeah, I know...their first mistake). When it hit, her husband was laying on top of her. She said the place just exploded.

A supervisor'* MIL was killed when the trailer she lived in was struck by a large tree.

So, lots of death and destruction to go around. We need for more of the Central Florida crew to check in.

No...not alright...

They found her husband and youngest son and both were dead. In just a few moments she lost almost everything. All except her oldest son.

We are all kind of numb...

We'll obviously continue paying her, even though she'* only hourly, until she can get back on her feet. We will try to find an empty apartment in one of the properties to give her a place to stay once it gets to that point.

She actually came straight from the hospital, still in hospital clothes (she has none right now), with her broken collar bone and her face all beaten up, to make sure she still had a job! We would have to be totally heartless to punish her for this.
