You should call places like Big Lots and the Dollar store because they do donations sometimes... I know our assistant manager usually gives u guys a call when we have food that is going out or something.
If you don't like my opinion, you don't have to read it.

We use Milk-bone ( or off brands), those little meat sticks ( I use pupperoni) we use anything we get..

As for adult food, they use a mixture of Beneful and Dog Chow.. But at this point we will take anything! They will be taking donations at the shelter till 7pm today..

the tornado did alot of damage in 74 , on Catrons Creek .Like Den said, there were big trees uprooted. at the Church that sits on the hill , it blew the roof off which was a tin roof at the time. Tin strown everywhere on the mountain above the church it blew down several trees, blew windows out. As far as I know , no one was hurt . The people in this area it hit were just blessed.

If you say so Den I believe you but I have never seen or heard of a funnel cloud hitting the ground in our area. I know we have had some hellacious winds though and wind can so a lot of damage. :) :)

Thank you Guest this information was very interesting to me. I find it strange that all of these were 14 miles plus from the center of the county. I tried to do a quick search and could not find where the center is located. I also noticed there were no category above I and only two of the five listed as I. Also there were no fatalities and damage done was by far small in comparison to most. Maybe that is why I had never heard of this before, it was not highly publicized for these reason.

The information gave me a feeling of security because as I said before the mountains protect us from the kind of weather currents necessary for tornados to stay formed.

Where was it in the county Jaw? I guess I have been lucky, I have never been in one, high winds but no funnel. I have lived at the bottom of but close to mountains almost all of my life here in Harlan. Mostly on highway 72 and here in fairview holler. :D :D
