On Wednesday, April 27, 2011, the home and office of your Hurricane Creekkeeper, John Wathen, took a direct hit from a category F4/F5 tornado. John is physically okay, but his residence and workplace were heavily damaged. Some of his nearby relatives lost their home entirely. The tornado was generated by the same storm system that devastated many areas of the South yesterday and, as of this morning, has killed 173 people—at least 120 of those victims were in John's home state of Alabama.
In this time of great need, we ask you humbly to help us help John rebuild.
