UPDATED: No, this is not our tornado

UPDATE: Thank you to a dear friend who just informed me this photo is a hoax. For those in our community who have seen this photo and are sending it out via cellphone (I’ve gotten it seven times now), internet, etc., please visit this site: http://www.snopes.com/photos/natural/floridatornado.asp. It’s only natural that we would share this without thinking to question its validity. No matter if this is an actual picture or not, what happened is very real and very devastating.

Please continue to remember the families affected by this storm. Also, I’d encourage you to go visit Deedra’s blog for powerful pictures of a memorial that has been erected in honor of Linda Tinker who was killed in this disaster. The faith of this family is far stronger than any wind that may blow through our lives.
