The Catastrophic Event

On February 23 and 24 of 2016, according to the Weather Channel website, at least 61 confirmed tornadoes ripped across 10 states on the eastern coast of the U.S.  Aven and her family were among those who witnessed this outbreak first-hand.  She recounts the events of that Wednesday, “We had tornado warnings all day on the 24th”.  This prompted her and her husband to take the kids and the animals to the basement.  “We heard a loud roar, and my husband and I looked at each other and knew it was coming.”  They found the safest part of the basement, the bathroom, and huddled together.
