Lauderdale County was rocked by an EF1 tornado with 100 mph winds Wednesday night. The tornado was 400 yards wide and on the ground for 3.75 miles. Trees are down and homes are damaged, but the good news is there’s only one report of a minor injury. County EMA Director George Grabryan said one fire fighter was injured using a chainsaw, but the Greenhill Volunteer Fire Department said the firefighter was doing well. Now in the aftermath, her house is surrounded by uprooted trees, an antenna pole snapped like a twig, and a garage that’s collapsed into her backyard. From the outside, the damage to the shed is obvious. When you look inside, you see it’s being held up, in part, by a fridge. She says she’s still processing what happened and is grateful nobody was hurt. Her family is now without running water and waiting on the insurance.
