The folks who live in Mansfield received a real shock Friday as an unexpected smack from Mother Nature rolled through a portion of their small town. For more details, you can go to to see pictures and a video of the storm.

This tornado caught everyone off-guard, and based on the damage it caused, it is no less than a miracle that only one person, who sustained leg injuries, was hurt.

Debris could be seen strewn everywhere in the tornado’s path.

We were impressed that the county fire department and sheriff’s deputies were on the scene quickly.

We owe them thanks for their quick actions.

We also owe thanks to God, who through his good grace spared the families whose homes were destroyed by this terrible act of nature.
