“My heart really goes out to the families,” he said Wednesday. “When something like that happens and someone tells you what it really is, you just sit there and think.
“Our thoughts and prayers are with all the families that lost houses, loved ones … that kind of stuff is real life. That’s hard. Being 2-3 is not hard when we really think about it. Doing that kind of stuff, that’s what is really hard. Our prayers are with them that they can have peace and encouragement.”
As of Wednesday afternoon, the death toll is 21 and hundreds are reportedly missing.
