The tornado that struck West Liberty, Kentucky not only packed a punch, but also carried debris to 120 miles away to Kanawha County.
Jim Bess who just happens to live in "Tornado" West Virginia, found pieces of mail from West Liberty in his yard Saturday morning. "I saw it and thought surely it wouldn't come that far away. They say it's around 120 miles from Charleston to West Liberty."
Jim's wife, Reba says she's concerned for the woman who sent the letter. "All afternoon she was on my mind. I could just imagine seeing that letter in a house being blown apart. Maybe she was hurt, maybe she wasn't, those things are going through my mind. I just prayed for her, I knew she needed prayers."
Jim and Reba Bess plan to put the check and bill in the mail and hope to hear soon if the sender is alright.
