I know, this is not our first storm thread my friend and in fact we have been together in several very horrible situations. I really am happy that you are safe, hope all your loved ones and friends are as well. so many people are being forced into a totally new paradigm through weather disasters these past few years and I fear the worst has yet to come. I recall a bunch of heartless people making fun of those who 'chose' to live in the path of these types of events when in fact what was once rare and isolated has become so wide spread that really no where is safe anymore in that regard.


that true it not just tornado alley anymore
god bless

Here's the real complication to this terrible challenge:

www.weather.com...:1:US

The reason the Midwest saw this deluge of deadly weather patterns had to do with warm and cool air meeting with high winds, it was the set up for the perfect storm.

More importantly is that they find survivors and complete recovery efforts before the temperatures dip back down to the norm. From the 10 day forecast you can see that below freezing temps are projected for evenings and daytime not warming up all that much either for those either injured or homeless.

The financial burden is going to be astronomical. How to help so many people? Donations and the logistics of disaster assistance is going to be complicated.

the F-4 was in New Minden

Among today's most significant tornado reports: At least 50 mobile homes were destroyed by a tornado in Brookport, Ill., on the Ohio River. Washington, Ill. (near Peoria) sustained major tornado damage as well, and one person died there. An EF-4 tornado has been confirmed in New Minden, Ill., where two people died.

and this F-2

EF-2 tornado damage found by one of our survey teams in and near Coal City Illinois. More to follow. #ilwx

I'm in Michigan and I was filling up my truck with gas before .ing back to my university after a nice weekend at home...

I drove about a mile down the road to the nearest gas station to fill up and I could barely see anything with the severe rain which was making me a little nervous about getting on the highway for a 3 hour trip but my ego told me I could do it. Well, as soon as I got to the gas station, I stepped out of my truck, grabbed the gas pump and all of the sudden lightning lit up the night sky and struck the power line not more than 20 yards away from me and blew it up. It sounded like a bomb going off and sparks were flying everywhere. I jumped, set the gas pump down, got back in my truck and .ed straight home.

While driving home (which is only 1 mile from the gas station) another bolt of lightning struck a second power line and blew it up. Sparks were flying everywhere and it looked like something right out of a movie. It was chaotic with people slamming on their brakes and freaking out.

Now we're getting 70mph winds.

I think it's safe to say i'm just going to stay home for the night and leave for school first thing in the morning haha

Oh God, my heart goes out to this special member... it was hard to be discussing the incoming storms and then not hear back from certain members. I was trying to touch base with everyone who was on this thread and in the path of the storms, but anyone else is welcome to help contact them either here or by u2u to find out if they are ok and to let them know we do care and are here in support.

I'm just south of Chicago right in the "danger" zone for the storm, I'll make sure to let you all know how it goes once it intensifies (I believe around 12:30-1pm CST).... Hopefully, there are no tornado touchdowns... Be safe everyone!


Let us hear from you, hope all is well tonight.

Thank you for thinking of us!

Other than property damage, we are fine.

Wish I could help others, but the police wont let us.

Wind is still whipping but the full moon is giving us light. That helps!
