Earlier last week, many parts of Alabama, Tennessee, and Georgia were swept by some heavy storms, which were marked by gale-force winds and baseball-sized hail. When one small town called Cave Spring located 70 miles northeast of Atlanta heard of tornado warnings in their area, they immediately knew where to go.
150 people retreated to the town’s claim to fame — a natural limestone cave which is a fairly popular tourist destination for its stalagmite formations and “Devil’s Stool” rock. As the people took shelter inside the cave to protect themselves from the tornado, some took photos and shared them.
Many people in the south saw heavy damage from the storms, which ruined many homes and took away power for thousands of other houses. Fortunately for the people of Cave Spring, they knew precisely where to go to ensure maximum safety.
