Vilonia - Devastation In Our Precious Little Town

Monday, April 25th, our precious little town of Vilonia was struck by an EF-2 tornado. Almost all of the one street light town was damaged except for the small part where our schools are located (I'm sure there are a ton of disappointed kids LOL!), which is also the same side that our neighborhood is on. 


Below is the damage to my best friend's home. Her and her family made it out just fine with no injuries.


These photos are her front yard.



The side and back of her home.


The second level on one side is completely gone.



Her bedroom and closet.



Her dining room.



Her living room.




Below is her little boy's room.


Below is the ceiling in her living room.



Her upstairs bathroom. The shower and the scrubby made it though!


Upstairs closet.


Below are photos from around town which are just a small bit of the damage.














More storms came through the next night and did even more damage to my best friend's home.



Below are photos of thunderstorms that kept popping up when we were trying to clean up. They made more rain so every so often more of the ceiling in her house would fall on us while we were trying to pack up what was salvageable.



More of the damage around town.








I feel so sorry for all my neighbors who lost their homes, and especially those who lost their lives in this terrible storm. My heart also goes out to the rest of the southern states who were effected by even larger tornadoes this week; it all just breaks my heart.
