Tina: This is just so freaky and I started crying and chills ran thru me. A real life horror story. I send you all my prayers. Especially the child crying, I thought of my little girl and how scared she would be. What a truly terrifying experience for all of you.

Uploaded by izelsg on May 22, 2011-The video i took while at Fastrip on east 20th street. We huddled in the back of the store until the glass got sucked out , then ran into the walk in storage fridge. Sorry for the lack of visuals but the audio is pretty telling of how intense the storm was. The tornado hits at around 1:20 seconds.

Tina: Here is an Amazing Rainbow - I was so sad and full of despair watching and listening to these videos, it really feels like the end of the world some days, with all these terrible storms, earthquakes, Tsunami's, but then I just have to keep faith and believe there is hope, and this sign, a rainbow is my little bit of hope that somehow we can turn this world around. We can work together on Climate Change and turn things back. 

Tina: My prayers and thoughts go out to the people of Joplin, and I so very sorry that this has happened to you. I send this angel so you may find a moment of peace.

Sending Love and Prayers to the People of the Joplin, I am so truly sorry that this has happened to you. Tina & Angel  Photo by Tina Winterlik © 2011
