Steve and Cindy Boileau lost much of their property to an April 14 tornado. Their mobile home is in the background.

It’s several days after a tornado plowed through the countryside south of Kanopolis and Cindy and Steve Boileau are counting their blessings.
“We could have been hurt, maimed or killed,” Steve told a neighbor who pulled into the couple’s driveway. “We’re thanking our lucky stars.”
Lucky may be an understatement. The tornado that struck the Boileaus’ rural home April 14 was at least the second to roll through Ellsworth County.

Pick up a copy of the April 26, 2012, edition of the Ellsworth County I-R for much more on this story.
