Mother nature has been on a tear lately. On Christmas day, more than 34 tornadoes were reported in Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, and Alabama. 

At least 100 homes and businesses were completely wrecked in Mobile, Alabama. There’s a viral Youtube video of the Tornado tearing through a Walgreens in Alabama, which is pretty crazy.

Josh Holman, the pharmacy’s assistant manager, told local reporters that he was grateful that nobody was seriously hurt.

“I’ve never been in a war zone, but I’m sure that’s what it looks like,” he said.

The tornado struck Mobile, Alabama at about 5pm local time on Christmas Day, according to the US National Weather Service.

Salute to everyone who weathered the storm through these tornadoes.
