32 minutes

Download MP3 audio

They’re one of the most terrifying weather phenomena there is, able to strike with little warning practically anywhere, and they bring destruction and mayhem in their wake. This week we talk about some of the most terrible tornados in Texas history.

Before we begin… What’s your favorite Texas based charitable organization?

  • Sean: I like the Texas Baptist Men, which is an organization associated with the Southern Baptists of Texas. They go in after a disaster and help start demolition on ruined houses and do the work of cleaning up, reframing, and putting up sheetrock in homes. They also go to provide immediate food and water to disaster areas right when they happen.

  • Mike: The Children’s Advocacy Center of Smith County (1 in 4 girls and 1 in 6 boys)

  • Scott: Hope Supply Co. Meeting the critical needs for Homeless Children
