Prayers needed for Sugarland Fans

Last night tragedy struck the Indiana State Fair and the country duo, Sugarland as a huge gust of wind collapsed the stage onto fans awaiting the appearance of Sugarland. 46 injured and 5 killed are the latest statistics that I have heard. It is a sad day for many families and they need our prayers.

Luckily, Sugarland was not on stage as it would have been a much sadder day for country music if they had been. Sara Bareilles had just left the stage and Sugarland had not taken the stage yet, when this happened.

Meterologists are saying that the National Weather Service had issued a severe thunderstorm warning just a few minutes before and announcements had been made to tell concert goers where to go if there was an evacuation put into place. In just a matter of minutes, the stage collapsed on to the group of fans in an area closest to the stage known as "the sugar pit". Many fans were taken to local area hospitals to be treated for a variety of injuries.

Please pray for the families who have lost loved ones as well as the injured and all who witnessed the entire tragedy!
