PHOTO STORIES OF:
The Weather Channel said it was heading to Columbia. The map showed the edge of weather extended to the area located near the Marion County Activity Center on 13 South. Being worried our car would have a tree or our trailer disable it we decided to head for clearer sky. So we headed to the Activity Center parking lot only to see the winds pickup and debris started flying around.
Leaving there we travel further South to the PRVO building. About a minute there the winds got really strong and by the time I started the car and got on the highway the rain was so hard we couldn’t see in front of us and the car was rocking around. We just kept traveling as fast as we could South until we were out of the darker clouds and into calmer weather.
After 30 minutes we thought we’d head home and were stopped at the Activity Center.
It would be another 41/2 hours before we were allowed to go through the debris field. We spent 30 minutes across the old Laundry-mat in Singley’s parking lot.
The entire area was destroyed. The worst of it began .2 tenths of a mile from the Activity Center heading North toward Columbia and .6 tenths of a mile from the PRVO where we were when it came through and we fled South.
We returned this morning to get these photos. The storm clearly went further South than last reported by the National Weather Channel and in doing so revealed some interesting thoughts about the death of our child and the evil involved in state sponsored extortion. These people will collect insurance for their lost and will probably never see anything in what happened here. Just another unusual event at an unusual time.
This place used to be an insurance business. When April died the same man who came to our home to tell us she was being denied medical aid also took us here. We were told that if April had died from an accident that they could help in burial expense. The owner of this business thought April was my step dad’s child and immediately stopped any help simply because April was my child. The Funeral home wanted to cremate her body the very next day. Even having found the money for expenses April’s coffin remained closed. I suspect her body wasn’t in it.
The funeral home where April was allowed to be placed although we didn’t have the money for the entire expense. Their overhead cost alone was $3500.00 Record indicate the coffin April had was purchased several months before her death. An attitude change occurred three days after her death. All would be handled.
The service road Mini Mall one of many things we are told we paid for.
Now this is interesting. If your life history is ever flagged and your not a secret agent that means your government considers or has labeled you a dead man / women. My step dad contracted the tile work on this construction job and this is where dead man walking was explained to me. I recall bringing them lunch one day when this discussion took place. Except for the damage the ceiling looked pretty much the same in this photo as it did then.
A structure posting the ten commandments remained near a huge building that was totally destroyed. Awesome!! Looking at the photo of the twister this picture was taken from what appears to be 13 North. Our home is about three miles to the right of this photo and we were 6 tenths of a mile to the South of it at this point. We crossed in front of it at about 3 miles.
