Default Tornado hits Van, TX

Anyone talked to Ken Parker about the hit in his town of Van, TX, just east of Dallas? Hope all are ok.

I thought of Ken Parker when I heard this on the radio this morning. Would be interested in his well being.

My wife is from Tyler, just 10 miles east of Van.

just to reiterate. Ken Parker, his wife Lillian, dog Quincy ,the house and shop and all Model A's are all just fine. We did not get hit - missed by about 600 yards. Thanks for the FB concern. ken
