    Hope these came out. This is the thunderstorm that rolled through Siouxland at approx. 7 p.m. and is still going on. The first shots are looking West towards Sioux City at the sunset. The others are Northwest of Moville and on Main Street of Moville. All of which were taken on by me on my camera phone.

    Man, I have not been in Moville in forever. My dad grew up there and my grandma lived there before she passed. Still have an aunt and uncle there.

    It has not changed judging by your picture.

    yeah, Mapleton had a tornado rip through town, but no serious injuries, thankfully...we were waiting at Mercy for the worst, but there were no trauma calls...we dodged a big bullet..otherwise, I'd still be working...
