Bob Tomkins is a member of the list so I thought I'd forward your note. It is good to know that he and his family survived! Please let us know if there's anything he needs.

Bob was inside the house when it hit and was thrown 100 yards landing in a pile of debris. He has broken ribs, a punctured lung, a broken hand, multiple cuts, bruises, etc. but says that he will be OK and feels extremely grateful to be alive. He is being released from the hospital today. His wife Annette is coping very well. Our prayers are with him and his family and all of the people who suffered loss due to this incredible force of nature. I have some pictures that I will post soon that show the foundation where the house once stood. The tornado cleared the foundation. The lone survivor in the driveway is his '92 V8 Quattro. The GMC truck that was parked next to the Audi took the brunt of the damage and probably spared the Audi. The V8 will drive away once we have keys made. It suffered a broken window, rear windshield, and scratches- all superficial damage. I guess that we can add "tornado proof" to its list of luxuries!
