Disaster hits dickinson,nd July 8, 2009.

This is a florist shop that got destroyed from the tornado. All the windows and greenhouse windows were blown out.

This is one home that got the roof torn off it,siding riped off and windows blown off of it. In this area we saw alot of cars that were completely destroyed.
This is an auto body shop.

Here is a tree that fell on these people's garage and truck camper.


When you drive down these streets all you see is hundreds of tress that got up rooted. On wed nigtht at about 7:30 the sirens here in dickinson (our home town )went off for quite sometime. It got so dark out, I have never seen anything like it. We experienced about 150 mph winds with some heavy rain and hail. About three miles from us got hit with a f3 tornado. It did so much damage. I went driving threw it and it was just horrible. You can't go threw hardly any of the streets. They have national guards securing almost every street while they are doing clean up. I was only able to get pictures from a distance. This storm wiped alot of our town out. We have lost businesses,houses,a couple of churches. I went driving threw this mess I couldn't stop crying. This stuff doesn't seem real until you see it in real life. I felt like I was in a movie. We are so thankful that no one got hurt too serious. The town has really came together to help everyone out. We ask that you could keep these families in your prayers as they try to get threw this disaster.
