    After being wiped out 10 years ago last Feb. in one – I can tell you the strange things it does – I was in the closet scared to death – it was one year after my husband had passed away so I was alone – I was out of the house until October when I moved back in BUT YOU NEVER FORGET THE SOUND AND SMELL – it has a strange smell. and yesterday I was on the front porch watching and then went into my trusty closet – these people have their lives and are soooo lucky BUT the damage to them and the fear of a “tornado warning” will always be there.

    WHY are there no sirens in Molino???????????????
