    1. I am black and was living in a card board box at the time and I was smoke and swallowing if you know what I mean and a tree feel on top of me

    2. We got hit! Hit in the face and real hard! Lmao. We did indeed but, we made it!
      Shit I didn't have a home to come to with two. Little ones. Lets pray nothing this horrible will happen again.

    3. 10 years ago tonight, Hurricane Ivan Changed my Life forever, I am so happy I dont Live in Pensacola anymore! I made new friends & Found a better way of life, Its funny how the worst things that happen to you turn in to the best thing for you .I will never forget the terror & fear i lived that night , Me & my Cat Max Hiding against the wall with a couch overturned Sheltering us from the ceiling falling in.

    4. We left Mobile and went to Anniston.  After the storm we drove back home and the closer south we came, the worse the damage. Once we got about 50 miles south of B'ham, the power was out.
