Ed Jones and his wife of 63 years, June, have lived in Center Point, Ala. since 1958. Early Monday morning their home was destroyed by a tornado that ravaged through Jefferson County. Family members including granddaughter Ashley Farmer and great grandson Rhylan Kendrick, 10 months, came by their home to help on Jan. 25, but the Jones’s are not sure if any part of the structure can be saved.
Rhylan was allowed to play in boxes in the living room to avoid hurting himself on the pieces of sheet-rock, wood and insulation that littered the floor.
The National Weather Service said at least six different tornadoes skipped across central Alabama, Jan. 23, causing damage across a wide area. The strongest hit Jefferson County with winds up to 150 mph.
