The tragedy continues to unfold this week in the American south and midwest as tornadoes sweep through rural areas and towns, destroying homes and lives. As this article is published, the storms continue their march. Since the storms began, rescue workers have been working hard to save lives in the area.
Social media has taken on importance as families and friends check on each other, trying to make sure their loved ones are safe.
The pets of Tornado Alley have been hit hard by these storms too. Many have been killed; others are missing, either swept away by the storm, or having fled in fear when their homes were destroyed.
Elisa Black-Taylor, a writer and photographer in upstate South Carolina who also writes for Examiner, has been working tirelessly throughout the day and into the night posting articles about pets who are lost, found, and even those who have been reported dead.
