Simon’s Village

Our faithful guard, Simon, got a call a few days ago about his village being destroyed.  He asked me if he could borrow my moto so he could go and see what happened.  What he described sounded like a tornado.  I have never heard of a tornado here.  I asked him if this was normal and he said no.

We can have some extremely high wind, but I haven’t heard of a tornado.  It seems that one passed the other day at Simon’s village.  It killed many people.  From what I understand, it didn’t kill anybody in his family but his grandmother’s house was totally destroyed.  Her food was all lost.  Simon asked me for an advance of his salary to help but I know that this will be real hard on him.  I am seeing what I can do to help.  Here are a few pictures.  His grandmother is the one in the picture.
