Good call. Im here in Pittsburg, KS and there was a tornado warning here last night at about 11:05 pm. From what I hear, there was some damage in the southern and eastern parts of town, but nobody injured or hurt.. as for me? I'm crazy, so I was outside looking at the sky screaming "it really sounds like a freight train!" and "the sky is GREEN! the sky is GREEN!"

Tornados are not formed from straight line winds. A tornado is formed during violent thunderstorms when there are warm and humid conditions at the surface and cooler air aloft. The updraft where these fronts meet is the birthplace of the tornado. That of course is over simplified but basically thats the action needed for tornados to form. Straight line winds can be damaging and gusts during a thunderstorm can be very strong.

this is not going to be a fun spring. i want to buy one of those big storage containers (like a train car) to put in my back yard to hide in when storms come LOL!!! you can't put anything underground here so that seems like a good option. too bad money doesn't grow on the tree in my yard.
