Storm Chaser Rescues Family, Vows To Rebuild Home

Donation protected
There’s a good chance that we’ve raised enough funds, across all sources, for this family. If we end up short on funds we will start the donation requests again. Thank you everyone for your help! 
100% of these funds go to the family. Johnny Jones, the son of the woman who was hit by the tornado is connected to this gofundme page and he and his family are the beneficiary. Storm Chaser Jonny Gabel and his chase partner Carlos Ocampo, created this gofundme page. Jonny and Carlos are the ones who rescued the Rolling Fork, Mississippi family hit by the ef4 tornado. This fundraiser is for their new home. Jonny and his crew raise funds and rebuild homes for families. It’s necessary because some families would otherwise be homeless because they don’t have home insurance nor do they have enough funding to rebuild an entire home. This specific family’s home is completely destroyed and like many other owners in Mississippi, they didn’t have home insurance. STORY:  Storm chasers rescued a family in Rolling Fork, MS. Their home was hit by the EF4 tornado that hit their little town on March 24th.  Right after the tornado hit, they drove into town and started helping with rescues. They helped get the grandmother out of the house. She wasn’t able to get out of the home on her own power.  And the little girl, which they refer to as a beacon of hope was holding her arms out and wanted Jonny to pick her up. So he asked her relative/Mom if he could and she said yes. It was a touching moment because the entire family survived without injury and after seeing people who were killed by the tornado, this family was a beacon of hope.  Story about the uncle: Chris Boyer, the uncle of the little girl Jonny rescued said he couldn’t get a hold of his family and he was worried that they might not have survived. But he said he checked TikTok and searched for Rolling Fork videos and he said the first video that came up was of Jonny picking up and holding his niece and he knew at that point that they were safe. Then this whole story got out shortly after. Jonny has vowed to help them rebuild. Thank you, Jonny, Carlos, Johnny Jones and his family.
