I’m sure you have all heard the news about the devastating tornadoes and thunderstorms that ripped through our area yesterday. We are all still reeling as reports and pictures of the destruction are starting to circulate.
Menokin was spared, and for that we should all be grateful. But it was truly divine intervention, because at nearby Naylor’s Beach eight houses were destroyed. That’s only about four miles from Menokin as the crow flies.
It also passed over the dump on Newland Road which is probably less than a mile away.
As we go about our important work of saving Menokin, we are informing people how dire the situation is, and how one large weather event could demolish the house. Last night’s tornado drives home that point. We must redouble our efforts to get Menokin stabilized and protected. We may not be so lucky next time.
