Tornados, Thunderstorms and floods oh my

Over the last few days, there has been some tremendous rainstorms throughout the Midwest and Southern states. Here in St Louis area we were hit pretty bad

This was the story over a wide area, Arkansas, Missouri, Illinois, Tennessee, Virginia, Kentucky and many other areas around the country. I know few of my friends got hit, some had flooding and loss of power and phone lines.

The flooding is still going on in Tennessee and other areas:

I think this can be a time where we can come together and pray for those affected by these storms. I will leave others to argue over the political ramifications of this, but I think that we should do everything we can to help those in need, with or without the government.

You can donate to the Red Cross

Consider this an open thread. If you have any thoughts or stories to share, or any good places to donate to to help, leave them in the comments
