Yeah, have you heard of the Henryville, IN tornado? I was out on that day as well. It was mighty scary, hail and everything. I was heading home from college classes when we got the warning on the radio.
No new thing, but still scary. I hate tornados. :/

My Mom and two of my sisters are there(all nurses) but I can't help...
Washington is 8 miles from me and I can do nothing...
My sisters said help is needed, but we're not allowed in... WTF over?
ikonoklastJudging from the path this tornado was sighted along, it must have narrowly missed the nuclear power plant at Braidwood. If it was really an F4, I wonder what would have happened if there was a direct hit of the power plant.

Yes I we all have, it was horrific and I think that one of the MODS here did a whole thread on it as he and his family were affected. You can never be prepared enough when nature turns in your direction. It is like Russian roulette.
