A few days ago I wrote about narrowly escaping a tornado in Coweta County Georgia. We were fortunate to come away unscathed.
Unfortunately, some communities in neighboring Spalding County did not fare so well. Reports of the damage there was not highlighted on many newscasts because the devastation in larger towns seized the headlines.
Vaughn Georgia was hit hard and fast, and now lies in ruin. The cleanup has commenced, but the destruction is so widespread and pervasive that it may be years before the area recovers.
I took some photographs because there is a story that needs to be told. But it was distressing to see so many good people hurting so much as their lives changed literally overnight.
Sadly, two lives were lost. I offer my heartfelt condolences to the families.
But it could have been worse. So much worse.
