Too Close for Comfort. Wessington Springs Tornado just Two Houses Away! [LISTEN]
Wednesday, June 18th, 2014. It’s a night that residents of Wessington Springs, South Dakota won’t soon forget. A tornado, swept through Buffalo and Jerauld Counties in South Dakota.
Thursday, after looking through my Facebook news feed it occurs to me that someone I know might have been very close to the tornado that swept through and devastated the small town of Wessington Springs.
I start the conversation with Christina Stainbrook Schimke. Again, I’m kind of not really ‘listening’ as she starts her story. I thought she lived in the country in Wessington Springs. Turns out, she lives just 2 ‘houses’ away from the direct path of the devastating storm.
She tells the story so well, listen to it here. Oh, and wait till you hear what showed up in their back yard. From over a mile away.
