What once was an attached garage at the residence located at 1855 Ridge Rd. in Jackson is now a large pile of splintered wood after Tuesday's, May 6, 2003, tornado.

Tornados ignored the 30 mile per hour speed limit along Shawnee Road in Jackson at around 9:30pm. The city of Jackson had lost power due to the storm and there was uncountable damage throughout the area.

The Sonic drive-thru in Jackson, directly across the street from the police and fire station, saw a lot of damage, including downed wires and fractured structure.

Assistant Manager Dawn King surveyed the damage done to Sonic in Jackson. King lives just blocks away, and rushed to work after the tornado to make sure everyone was safe.
