    Midwest Tornadoes

    I have been watching the news about the tornadoes that ripped through the midwest. I hope the members who live in these areas are all well. Really unusual for this time of year to have such severe storms in the upper midwest. It looks like it really did some damage.

    Yes, it sure did! It just got too warm, too fast. I don't think people where I live realize the severity of a storm like this...or think that it can happen here either. Sirens are going off and they continue to shop and not 10 minutes after the worst tornado hit...people were out gawking at the damage..the storm wasn't even over yet. Crazyy

    Don't really hear of tornadoes in Wis. Very often. Guess they need to come and stay on the Oklahoma/Kansas border in the spring to see what you are suppose to do during a warning. I remember being in a store when the sirens were going off and the managment made everyone move to the center of the store and stop shopping. I take tornado warnings pretty serious. Glad you are ok :)

    OH GARSH!!! I hate tornadoes even if its a tiny warning like it wont be that severe I freak lol. I think I have a phobia of tornadoes. Don't laugh but seriously I cried a couple times just because we had a tornadoe warning. We had to go to the basement and I freak because I don't know what to bring with me. I always end up in the basement going I forgot to get this..or that lol. And I curl up in a ball and breath funny I just hate tornadoes.

    Its a good thing to be afraid of. We don't have a basement just a storm shelter with no electricity and we have to go outside to get in it. I do drills in the spring trying to get all the dogs to go down there. I hate going down there so its hard to get them to go.

    We don't really have tornadoes in California, Just earthquakes lol. So what do you do for the horses during a warning?? I'd have a heart attack not being able to protect my horse in a storm like that. I'd rather sit with my horse or take it inside with me lol.

    There is really nothing you can do. A tornado went through a town not far from me a few years ago and went through by a horse boarding facility killed several horses and distroyed the whole place. Barns, owners home everything. In a situation like that its just pray. I always worry, do I put them in the barn and worry about the barn being taken or leave them out and worry about the hail and them getting sucked up? Like I said just pray and hope it misses you.

    KsT, No I'm in Cowley county southeast of Sedgwick/Wichita. Unfortunatly we don't live within earshot of any tornado sirens. I have a weather radio that puts off a warning sound when there is something in my area. I saw on TV about Greensberg planning to rebuild green with energy efficiant and "green" material. I thought that was such a great plan, to take something so horrible and rebuild it better than before. I know there are a couple of ecological groups really watching how it goes there.
