J.D. Trimble was interviewed this morning on ch. 27 and said that the 4 deaths was not correct. At this time there is only one confirmed death with some still missing.

The death toll is confusing right now. While there is only one "confirmed" death, I understand there are 4 deaths. Three of which are not being reported at this time. Getting ready to go up that way and take some food and water, I may know more later.

I have family there does anyone know t

he names
I have family there as well. just spoke with a family member after trying for 24 hours. The tornado hit the Pomroyton area, Dry ridge, and tar ridge and possum hollow. The only 2 casualties I know of for certain are Beverly Bowman, whose house was lifted off the foundation and moved 300 yards and a Davies woman. that's all the info I have as of now. I do also know that Wendell Back was not killed, he is a relative. His home sustained damage, though. the national Guard is there and they are not allowing anyone in. I hope this helps and my prayers are with all my friends and relatives in Menifee County.

Just got back from Menifee County and very remarkably from all the damage the death toll was just two (which sadly is two too many). Thoughts and prayers to the families and all those affected. Everyone else has been accounted for and no more missing. The community has really come together with everyone trying to help out. At this time they have plenty of food and water donated but may need more in a few days. Nobody is wanting to take time from cleaning up the debris to eat. It looks like it first touched down on Fletcher Ridge and leveled everything in its path to Dan Ridge. I did not go any father than Broke Leg Falls which you would not recognize with all the trees gone. For those asking, Frenchburg was not effected. Electricity is back on in most places except for the hardest hit areas. Telephone service is spotty at best and it maybe sometime next week before internet service is restored . Some areas you can call into but not out of, some areas you can call out but not into and some areas there is no service at all. Again, a great bunch of people that have really pulled together in a time of need.

Prayers for all of you in Menifee County. My great grandparents moved from Frenchburg to Middletown OH in 1906, and I still have distant relatives there. My ancestors used to own the land that Broke Leg Falls is on, and we visited the falls for the first time in June 2011. I'm glad we got to see the land before the vicious tornadoes hit. God bless all of you.

I am a relative of Ronnie and Beverly. My Dad grew up in Morgan County on a farm on 460 located between Ezel and Maytown. My Grandparents were Arnold and Resa Bowman. Our prayers go out to all of my family in that area. Can anyone tell me how Kenny Bowman and family are doing? My Dad's name is Earl Bowman, my name is Dwain Bowman. I live in Ohio in the Middletown area. We will pray for Ronnie and his family.
