NWS just issued a tornado watch for my county. This sucker's moving at 70 MPH and the radio just said that sirens were going off in the next county.

NWS Radar Link to watch the fun

Pics to follow

Good luck. I woke up last night at midnight to tornado sirens.

I like the fact that we have tornado sirens but,  I have one in my backyard

Before I clicked the link I was thinking to myself,  WTF is a Not Work Safe radar link,  an ass cam or something.

Keep safe and I'll keep an eye out for an earthquake in my area.

These pics were taken within 10 minutes of each other.

This thing moved so fast that the worst passed while I was outside taking pics. Now we have light rain and it looks more like the second pic now. There is another one near Terre Haute moving my way at 50 MPH though.

TAKE COVER NOW! IF YOU WAIT
TO SEE OR HEAR IT COMING...IT MAY BE TOO LATE TO GET TO A SAFE PLACE.

THE SAFEST PLACE TO BE DURING A TORNADO IS IN A BASEMENT. GET UNDER A
WORKBENCH OR OTHER PIECE OF STURDY FURNITURE. IF NO BASEMENT IS
AVAILABLE...SEEK SHELTER ON THE LOWEST FLOOR OF THE BUILDING IN AN
INTERIOR HALLWAY OR ROOM SUCH AS A CLOSET. USE BLANKETS OR PILLOWS TO
COVER YOUR BODY AND ALWAYS STAY AWAY FROM WINDOWS.

IF IN MOBILE HOMES OR VEHICLES...EVACUATE THEM AND GET INSIDE A
SUBSTANTIAL SHELTER. IF NO SHELTER IS AVAILABLE...LIE FLAT IN THE
NEAREST DITCH OR OTHER LOW SPOT AND COVER YOUR HEAD WITH YOUR HANDS.
