First I would like to extend my heartfelt sympathies to everyone who has lost a loved one and has had property damage done to them in the areas where the tornadoes hit last night. News is reporting that store owners are out boarding up windows and doors to prevent looting. Police are asking residents to remain home. Water supplies may have been contaminated so everyone is being told to boil their water. See, having some food supplies and other essentials is always a good idea. Proven time and time again whenever a natural disater strikes. Good luck to all our members who may have been affected.

I've never had to use my SHTF supplies, but cycle through them to make sure they're reasonably fresh. Here in Earthquake Country we face possible widespread interruptions in service. They happen less frequently than in Tornado Alley, but when it happens it's big. Best wishes to all residents of the affected areas. I was born in KC, Kansas and have many relatives in the area. They all made it through this one uscathed.

Don't think I've ever been so scared. Multiple tornados touched down in the KC area. Lots of houses blown apart, lots of damage. I was out looking at houses with my fiance. Heard the tornado sirens and started heading towards home. It looked like there was a break in the clouds out west where I was going. It looked like the clouds were clearing up. Dead wrong, it was the fucking tornado. The lightness I thought was a break in the clouds was just sheets of rain and hail. Huge chunks dented the shit out of my car, and I thought it was going to break my windshield. I saw a few chunks that were as big as my fist blowing sideways across the road. We managed to get off the road and to a gas station. Parked the car underneath the pump roof area and went inside. They lost power and we went to the back. I looked out the window with my girl, and we saw the tornado pass by in the south. Don't fuck with nature. Nature wins. Shawn

My friend at work emailed this to me:
I was in such awe of what was going on that I almost didn't get any photos. We had the kids playing dodge ball in the basement because of the warnings but I was cleaning out my garage and wasn't too worried. I saw a car stop in the street and the people started yelling so I went out to see what was going on. I watch from the middle of the street as it traveled east at the bottom of our hill and then ran to our basement and covered my kids and a neighbors kid with a mattress and then ran back to my van parked in my drive way and started taking pictures as I walked to the front porch to take cover from the hail. I really wasn't scared until it was over I realized how lucky we were. The first house I bought after college was damaged (maybe destroyed) by the same tornado. Have you heard of any Cerner associates who may have had damage? I uploaded the full images to a website for our neighbors [url]http://quicktornado.freewebsites.com[/url]

It was pretty exciting here last night... Tornados to the north and just south of Springfield. We got in the bathroom with all our pets (6 cats, 3 dogs) and waited it out. The worst we got was heavy rain, pea-sized hail, and falling debris. When we went outside we found mangled aluminum siding (about 2'x6'), a sheet of corrugated tin (3'x6'), and a large (4'x8') piece of outbuilding aluminum siding with a 2x4 still screwed into it weighing a good 20 lbs. Heard on the radio that someone in town found a Monett newspaper (over 40 mi. from Springfield).

Thankfully I think ahead and figured his free site would crash after too many people got on it... Here's the pic he got: [img]http://www.gunsnet.net/album/data/500/5270tornado1-med.jpg[/img] Shawn
