Even in the midst of destruction and in the wake of devastating storms, there is light and hope that show through in various ways, whether it’s the numerous volunteers lending assistance or a four-legged friend helping out in the nick of time.
After the tornado ravaged the home of Jimmy and Tracy Brown on January 12, they began attempting to salvage any personal possessions.
Last Tuesday, January 17, Tracy was gathering belongings from her house when her dog, Black Dog, started whining and barking.
She went outside and looked around. Not seeing anything unusual, she went back to her work.
Black Dog again started whining and barking. Tracy went out and looked around. Again, nothing unusual.
Then she heard a noise and turned back to her house just in time to see what was left of the roof crash down where she had been standing just a few moments earlier.
However, thanks to Black Dog, Tracy was not injured. Black Dog joins the ranks of others classified as heroes while helping the storm victims during their recovery efforts.
