Local Yarn Artists Assist Kentucky Tornado Victims!


Farm Girl Creations Extends Helping Hook!


Farm Girl Creations, Pontypool - two sisters who love to crochet, knit & sew. When Jennifer and Blair heard about the online auction to benefit tornado victims in Salyersville, Kentucky, they decided to pitch in by donating some of their unique crocheted items.

'We wanted to help the victims of the horrific Tornado Disaster,'shared Jennifer, adding 'We have been fortunate enough up here in Ontario in our local area not to have experienced anything so horrific, but I know that if we did, there would be many helping hands in the Crocheting Community to help out in any way possible.'


Kentucky Tornado Cuts Huge Swath







Between February 29 and March 3, tornados and severe storms struck across the center of the United States. On March 2 four separate tornados affected parts of nine different Kentucky counties, causing extensive damage to the towns of West Liberty and Salyersville. Salyersville-area historical tornado activity is significantly below Kentucky state average, and 38% below the overall U.S. average. However, according to an analysis by the National oWeather Service the Salyersville tornado extended an 'amazing' 49 miles through Kentucky and into West Virginia. Businesses, homes and other buildings in Salyersville were turned into piles of crumpled sheet metal. Insulation remnants floated off of tree branches and mattresses were found twenty feet up in the air inside of trees following the aftermath of the killer tornados that left 22 dead and millions homeless. Videos of the destruction can be seen on the
Floyd County Times
