Bad Storm early this morning

When I went to bed I had gotten an email that we were on tornado watch. That was at 2am. Just after 4am the storm wakes both Ben and I and I hurry to my emails and we were under Tornado warning so I get the kids up and in the bathroom untill Ben can get more info off the news about what areas are by any rotation. After about 15 minutes we realize its all just north of us and we should be ok. so the kids and i went back to bed and ben stayed up until 5am. He took the kids to school at 9 because we were still under warning. Well the buses were running late too. Just dropping kids off. Codys school was open but thomas' school was closed due to no power. So he is home today.
I went online to read about the storm and read a 15 y/o girl had died..
Teenager Killed In Storms A 15-year-old girl was killed early this morning when severe weather moved through western Benton County. Police said the girl was asleep in her bedroom on Lake Francis Drive in Siloam Springs when a tree fell on the house. A 10-year-old boy was also in the room, but he was not severely hurt. Authorities have not released the names of the children

Siloam Springs is just north of us, so sad.
