But... This isnt Kansas... This area doesnt have flat plains stretching for miles...
Never has this destruction happened before...
Tornado alley cuts off well before this area...
We are mountainious... Steep... Treacherous...

Western kentucky gets hit often by tornados... Its mostly flat...

Eastern ky the area if west liberty... Does not get hit by the standards that we have lived by...
In our history this has never happened until the 29th... Then again on the 2nd

Trust me this isnt normal... As per what we are used to... In the last 200 years...

Hope it was a freak storm...
And not the new norm...

Don't worry, all this bad weather and f-5 tornadoes, is all NORMAL. A cloud that covered half the united states with tornadic activities in 17 states, is NORMAL. Don't worry. Just ignore the strange noises you hear in the air and ignore the large tornadoe outside your house. If the ground shakes at night, it was only a nightmare. It is NORMAL for all the volcanic activities, even tho they are intensifying and more of them occur. Just ignore that and when U have technical difficulties, don't worry. Just sit back and enjoy the show.
That rumbling noise outside of your house that sounds like a frieght train ready to plow thru your house is completely NORMAL.
Don't worry, trust me.

At times I can't help thinking I've gone over the deep edge into tin foil hat paranoia.


No kidding, seeing the haarp website with a peak in the midwest a day before the tornado outbreak is a little freaky. And makes me angry, actually. I knew they were doing stuff, but this is getting personal now.

The other day I found postings on other sites from last year regarding the white dragon society basically predicting stuff that's happening now re: the banker resignations...

Allll Righty Then ... what if way more of this stuff is true than I originally thought?

(I predict someone says welcome to the club, come on in the water's fine)


You are definitely right - there was major HAARP activity in that region, and more specifically, Kentucky - This is getting serious - All the HAARP watchers are 'spot on' so much of the time - And one of my 'watchers' is missing!! And all his vids have been deleted -
Who is accountable when people die? Why are 'they' doing it, and who is ultimately responsible? The weather here in the Southern Hemisphere has been crazy and always there it is; HAARP activity - and more of them are being built - We need to demand answers

A whole town flattened, many people have died! This is not acceptable if nature alone was not the cause

I hope I'm wrong, but I feel this is just the beginning of some devastating weather will be experiencing in the near future.

I kind of figured that as soon as March hit that the tornado season would hit with full fury. I have to admit the winter has been unusually mild this year were I live, and by and large across the Midwest. I can recall about maybe two or three snow falls, and maybe one or two days of below freezing weather. I cannot recall a winter being so mild.

When the storms hit, there were winter conditions in the northern Midwest and spring like conditions in the southern plains and below. I am no meteorologist, but I recall when there are two weather fronts one cold and one warm converging on each other it is a recipe for disaster. A natural disaster can hit anywhere and anytime, and people who think they cannot are sadly mistaken. Tornadoes do form in mountainous regions like Western Kentucky. Maybe not as frequent as in the plains, but they do happen. Here is a massive tornado from some years back wreaking havoc in Colorado.



My thoughts are with the families who have to endure this tragedy. Batten down the hatches because it is going to be a long spring and summer.

So ironic that in the united states in the political mess it is, and with the ever growing removal of ppl's freedoms, that a place called "WEST LIBERTY" just got leveled.

Well... I think liberty in the west got leveled quite some time ago... but still, fate has these little treats now and then. Could it really be more blunt?

Here is why this occured. I found this here. The plumes heated the atmosphere and caused these bad weather conditions to occur a day later. MUST SEE youtu.be... i will be watching for conditions like this to occur again in the future. I think you should too. You be the judge.

Your guess is as good as mine?
They are probably trying to outrun it? If I were there and I saw that monster barreling toward me in the distance? I would be heading for the nearest ditch or another form of cover that is preferably below ground level. From what I have heard, people should never try to outrun them, because they can change speeds and directions at any time. I recall another incident from years ago about this news crew taking cover under an over pass. Check this video out.



Doing what this news crew did is another big mistake. They were lucky, because the host said it was a baby twister. Best thing to do is seek cover, and preferably the lowest elevation available. Thanks for the comment!

It is still "Tornado Alley" isnt it?

I have already posted about similar tornado swarms from decades ago and i am assuming there were even worse just no one recorded them.

Here is an account from 1925 and an interesting story:

smokeys-trail.com...

I dont see why these or recent ones are any worse than in the past.

Yes, it looks to be a little off according to this map:

The last time tornadoes actually took out any damage was April 3rd 1973. Montgomery Co. KY took a hard hit, they were pulling barn debris out of threes for months, infact on US 60 from Owingsville there still may be a piece of barn tin in the limbs.
This is bringing communities together to help out neighbors. I will be volunteering today to cook hot meals to take to the shelters. Donate goods, find groups who are organizing or organize an effort. Contact Red Cross they will get you to the areas of greatest need and through the proper channels. Just specify Indiana, or West Liberty or Sawyersville KY. Like OP I am closest to West Liberty, next county north, just skirted by.
We had trees on houses on our street and a couple in the road. You start to wrap you brain around surviving in phases. First are you ok? How did my shelter do? Did my neighbor get out?Then we started scoping our street for elderly in need. Neighbors with chainsaws cleared the road enough to get out. Check on family, count my blessings. The start finding ways to help. I don't have money, but I cook for a living, so will be going this afternoon and delivering a hot meal. No bologna and cold cheese for my neighbors tonight.
Even if you don't belong to a church, you can still volunteer with them, or find a friend who wants to help too,

I can get by with a little help from my friends.

Here's a video of it approaching in West Liberty. A woman is praying and it seems to work!

using the map you posted I highlighted and placed a red dot for West Liberty, Kentucky... Salyersville, Kentucky is in that/this area as well.

This is the modified map below.




We are not Tornado Alley... and this does not typically happen here...
Im not saying its HAARP or the end of the world... cos trust me i know we can get all kinds of wild weather...
but not in our 200 plus years have we seen this sort of wide spread tornado activity here in the mountains of eastern kentucky...

Kentucky is a big place...

So now maybe people will finally understand that the location in question is not Tornado Alley...
I've said it 10 times in this thread... now there is a map showing that in fact this is not Tornado Alley...

Malcher I am gonna give you a star for providing that map so I could show people and prove we are not insane for building here... cos this is NOT Tornado alley!!!




We were hurt bad... this is not typical for us...
(We as in my fellow Kentuckians... I was blessed and spared)




This is for copyright compliant purposes mostly... Original map is here

Absolutely dude. I have heard about a few tornadoes in Morehead and occasionally in like Louisa, but this time I heard about one a mile from Ashland. I have never heard of a tornado in Ashland in my 26 years of life. I have always been told send I was a kid that tornadoes didn't happen here because the all the hills (us being right on the edge of the Appalachians) prevented the air from gathering how it needed for a tornado. The other night it seemed like any place that was flat, no matter how small the area was fair game.

Now it has started snowing here and the wind is bitterly cold...
I was outside and it was miserable...
we are not expected to get a lot of snow...
1-3 inches... but that is the last thing victims of this tragedy needs...
