Had 9 tornados in my area, 5 that circled around me hitting different places, took out EVERYTHING around me, houses oblitarated, all the trees, houses, buildings, completely removed. My father ran the strip clubs here all my life, they are all destroyed and removed. (they was being shut down anyway) but a lot of sad memories.

6 houses down the tornado stopped its havoc, my house and stuff unscathed, everything on-1 block away. ... lets just say its sad. not just roofs, etc. the entire houses ripped in half, gone.

Just got water back, 2 days later, power etc.. gonna take a good year to recover all the houses rebuilt etc. I have been out last 2 days helping people chop trees up and moving debris off roads and yards. its awful.

My gf told me that her phone said tornado alert, etc it was nice out, crazy lightning but the air was silent, no birds, no nothing. was really eerie, I ran outside shoved the bikes to the wall like inch from it, and shoved 2 cars in. just minutes later, golfball sized hail pelting everything. I have a brand new roof, only broke a couple shingles. I got really lucky

Glad you're okay! We've had tornados in Oklahoma almost every day for what seems like the last two weeks. Canton, Tx got hit tonight as well. Crazy weather!

Lucky - that's an understatement FP.
Shown around the World for sure, terrible damage and it happens every year too. That Mississippi basin is a groove in a vinyl record just for tornado's to follow.
There could be more to come ? I saw the weather map last night (my Country) for the Caribbean, nothing but lightning and storms pointing to the Gulf States next.
Glad you are OK. FP, your Insurer would not be happy with a claim on that new Blue Pony Car so soon.

Been out last few days cutting up trees and helping debris from roads. They estimate it will take a year for the area to look good again, (rebuilding homes etc) I didn't realize it takes that long. Just got the water back on just now. Still not drinkable.

Just saw this post. Last night they confirmed 8 hit the North Texas area. We took cover when the alarms went off at work but it was a complete non event thankfully. We had one go through our parking lot last year on a weekend and ripped the trees and signs out where they were.

The final count was 17 tornados in the area. I hope you guys are doing ok! It’s been awful, a lot of thievery and bad stuff going on as much as people helping eachother it’s awful. Looting people’s destroyed homes. People suck
