  • This picture was taken a couple of days after the storm but shows the tree that landed on our bedroom. Thank God my wife and I saw the heavy weather coming on Channel 3's radar and moved our schedule up that morning or she would likely have been standing just inside where the tree hit. My aunt who was 79 at the time was looking out a window (the house is an "L" shape) in an undamaged part of the house and watched the tree fall on the house. The damage amounted to about $50,000. I've always said that when you can come out of something like this and only have the loss of a favorite bedspread to pout about, the only thing to do is get on your knees and say "Thank You".

July 22, 2013 marks 10 years since Hurricane Elvis did a tremendous amount of damage in the Memphis area.

Straight-line winds in excess of 100 miles per hour hit several counties but did the most damage in Memphis.

More than 300,000 customers were without power, some for more than 10 days.

Two deaths were attributed directly to the unexpected storm.
