The names of the people killed in the Garland, Texas area on Saturday night have been released after their next of kin were notified. There were: Petra Porras, Kimberly Tippett, Kamryn Crain, Cecil Lowrie, LaShondra "Shon" Whitaker, Sharva Sanders, Timothy Harris, Jose Ovieodo Juarez, Jerry Brazeal, Jerry Glenn Funderberk Jr and Aleya Santillano.
It is so unusual for such strong tornadoes to cause that much devastation and loss of life at the end of December. And the fact they occurred over one of the most populated areas in the United States (Dallas/Fort Worth) is even more strange.
Please pray for the friends and families of those who lost their lives in this terrible natural disaster. In addition to the fatalities, many other Texans were injured and they need your thoughts and prayers too.
Clean up continues today in the communities of Garland and Rowlett. Dozens of homes were completely destroyed when multiple tornadoes touched down across the DFW Metroplex. Included in this number were homes owned by local members of law enforcement.
