The cleanup continues in Pensacola after a tornado touched down from the sky and ripped apart an area near downtown. Dozens of homes were leveled, and residents spent Friday morning picking through the rubble that remains.

A daycare next to a church also was hit.  About 20 children and the instructors went inside the Greater Little Rock Baptist Church to hunker down, but the twister ripped off its roof.  No one was seriously injured says Pastor Lonnie Wesley  “From the outside it looks like a bomb went off inside the sanctuary.  But for the grace of God, no one was seriously injured.  It’s because of his grace that we are here today, no other reason.  And for that, we are thankful.”

Residents are prepared for hurricanes this time of year, but they say tornadoes aren’t very common.
