> SOUTHERN INDIANA —
“I think some people were severely affected. Of course, when you have personal injuries, death, it really takes a toll and makes you question a lot of things in your own life,” King said. “There are a lot of fears when storms come through. That is a very fearful time for people.”
While the community heals from the hurt and devastation, King said it has been an unexpected bonding opportunity for the community.
“It has also been a very encouraging time for people because they have gotten to know neighbors. They have shared stories with people they never met before,” she said. “I think in some ways it can help improve a community emotionally by going through a trauma together.”
