This past weekend, two EF2 tornadoes tore through the town of Lindale, Texas, the hometown of country singer, Miranda Lambert. The wild weather came as a shock to residents who certainly weren’t expecting the tornadoes in the middle of winter.
In an interview with NBC 5 News, Volunteer Fire Department Chief Jerry Garner said of the storm, “I would say totally unexpected. It was just a pop up situation, we weren’t expecting that. You normally don’t expect tornadoes in December.”
Miranda Lambert grew up in her East Texas hometown with her parents who ran a private detective agency. The town showed their love for Miranda just weeks ago by helping her celebrate her birthday with a giant pink billboard.
Luckily, no one was injured in the tornado, but it did leave widespread damage to homes in the wake of its 120-mile per hour wind gusts.
