Garland Tornado Year Anniversary

December 26, 2015 is a day that was etched into many people’s memories. That night a devastating F4 tornado hit Garland, Rowlett, and Wylie Texas. It destroyed homes, businesses, and 9 people lost their lives as the tornado passed over interstate 30 and President George Bush Turnpike during a busy travel time. The cities of Garland and Rowlett were drained of their resources in hours, and first responders talk about the amount of devastation. Emergency vehicles could not move through the debris left in the wake. In the days following cleanup crews were sent to take care of the debris on the roads and in the public areas, SERVPRO storm teams from all over the region came to help out. SERVPRO of South Garland banded with the community to help get everyone’s belongings safe and their homes dried out and safe to rebuild. Now almost a year later families are still rebuilding and the damage and devastation that they have experienced will remind them of how their community came together after the storm damage and were #GarlandStrong, #RowlettStrong, and stayed #TexasStrong. Our community has had fun runs, and charity drives, and benefits designed to get money where it was needed. Now we want to remember and have a time of coming together on December 26, 2016 we want to honor those who died, the people that stepped up and organized recourses after the disaster, to recognize those who put so much effort into restoring our community, and the families that have rebuilt. There is going to be a Candle Light Vigil at 1044 E Interstate 30, Garland, TX 75043-4202  we are going to be there and invite you all to come and remember those who were affected by this devastating disaster.
