A beautiful Sunday morning with clear sky and sun shining at its peak. People are enjoying their weekends with their families and so is the case with Jones.

The cars, houses, fields and everything in the way of storm could be seen flying and colliding in the skies like the day of judgment has arrived. The fear of the storm brought Jones and his sister back to hide behind the couches and weeping sounds could have been heard from all the corners of the stores. Horror caught the brains of the people in the store. It took five to six hours for the storm to get away from the boundaries of 60 kilometres and the authorities signalled green for the population near and in the premises of the city of Denver. ...read more.
