Arlington- Heavy winds wiped out several homes and killed a well known husband and wife in Arlington.

The violent storm shattered the home of John and Dorris White, leaving only pieces of the double wide trailer's foundation and the rest of the home scattered about fifty feet away. The Whites were killed when the storm struck their home, but there were three survivors. An adult child and the couple's two grandchildren were transported to a nearby hospital with only minor injuries.

Neighbor Jimmy Magahee remembers the Whites as "Great neighbors, well known people in the community." I feel for the family," said Magahee.

Magahee suffered a substantial amount of damage to his double wide trailer, but after seeing the damage left outside his home he just feels lucky he and his family are alive.

Emergency workers, GEMA, and workers from Governor Purdue's office are all working to clean and assess the damage left by the deadly storm.
