this is happening right now...

In Jackson County, Kansas City Fire Department ordered all personnel not responding to an emergency call to return to their stations and take cover. Kansas City has opened its Emergency Operation Center in the Northeast area.

Kansas City police ordered officers to their stations to take cover unless on emergency calls.

Several government agencies and business in downtown Kansas City were ordering employees, staff and others to take cover in the basements of their buildings.

UpDate



“There was a pickup truck that was overturned on (Kansas) 68 in front of the cemetery, and the flags are wrapped around the poles, so you know there was rotation,” he said.

Just around noon, a trained spotter reported a funnel cloud near Longview Lake, just two miles southeast of Lee’s Summit. Moments earlier, a storm was located near Lee’s Summit, moving north at 25 mph. Impact locations included Raytown, Independence, Sugar Creek, Claycomo and Pleasant Valley. A funnel cloud was sighted about four miles west of Raytown.

Funnel clouds were seen near the Truman Sports Complex.

Kansas City firefighters were dispatched about 12:25 p.m. to East 31st and Main Street to investigate debris as the result of a possible touchdown.

I live in Johnson County, and we heard the sirens around 11, so we went to the basement and played some ping pong for an hour until the storm passed. Now it's sunny outside and is shaping up to be a good day.

This story isn't about the KC area, its about the tornados in OK yesterday.

I am currently in GA, but my whole family lives in Noble, Ok. I mean my whole family, not just parents, brothers and sisters.

Anyway, I'm watching the weather channel and all of a sudden they cut to Noble and showed a tornado ripping through it. I watch as that tornado ripped my brothers house from the foundation. Literally, the camera was zoomed in as it tore through his house with him and his family in it.

I have been to war several times, but I have never known fear until then. Thankfully they survived, but wow, what a thing to see on live television.

I'm glad you had a basement to go to..think we ALL need some place that is safer..none may be safe
but some are better than others far as safety is concerned.
You could teach a thing or two about being "cool" during a possible crisis situation.
Want you to be there for me or somebody like me and if the bomb is gonna drop just say.."Hey ol lady,
it's gonna be fine..just wait and see..here have a hot cup of gormet coffee with cream" even if you know
things won't be okay..got it?
going nuts won't save you..knowing what to do and where to go and having a plan for afterwards just might.
