I am the one who shot the video from I-75 just above the exit. Reflecting on it now, I'll﻿ be honest that I did not know what I was even looking like when it hit. Based on other witness account, I found that the wall of gray was not a sheet of rain, but and F4 tornado that was already fully developed before it crossed the interstate. The Tornado was at the edge of the interstate when my son and I drove past it. So I can see why it took so many by surprise. Being on the interstate, there was no where to go.

We live in rossville ga just outside of rinngold and the poor town of rossvile was destroyed as well. We were not hit as hard as ringgold but the devestation is unthinkable. My heart and prayers go out to all of those who lost everything and loved ones. Luckily the trees missed my house barely, and no one was hurt. I will never look at a storm the same way again.

Thanks for the video. I'm interested in seeing Eastcoastprepper share his generosity. His site is www.stormrelief2011.org . He's heading out in the morning with some supplies and urging anyone who can help to donate to this cause.
My prayers are with all of you.

Out of appreciation I referenced eastcoastprepper.
How stupid of me.
I tried to register to his site to contribute a prepper recipe. I was declined. No explanation.
So I take it all back. How interesting. He continually asks for money and is so tight assed he won't accept an innocent well intentioned supporter to join his site.
Here's MY donation. NOT
