For those of you who haven't seen, here is the best footage of the tornado that just destroyed our city. The driver is in the parking lot of our mall, and what he's looking at is Midtown Village, both of our major shopping centers.


And a really eye-opening before and after satellite scroller.

That tornado almost hit us where I live. How bad was the damage?

If dreams came true, life would be crazy!!!

It was very bad.

If you click on the link I posted, there are before-and-after sliders from Google Earth that really show how intense it was. (There is a bar in the middle of the image, you slide those to change from before/after.)

That's scary.

I'm sorry for possible victims of that tornado.

Se pääsky toi kesän eteiseen, se antoi rauhan sydämeen,
ja lehahti sitten siivilleen, ja päästi pois kahleet.
Ja se loistaa, minne ikinä meen, se mukana kulkee

I swear I thought I was about to die today.

A man came up to me with a back pack, he looked like a thug, and He reached in the backpack slowly, and I thought he was about to pull a gun on me. I haven't been that scared in awhile. Turns out he was trying to sale cd's

Kate-That was funny! I thought I was going to die on Saturday. My friend and I were driving along the street and there was this skateboarder group. We accidentally waved at them thinking it was our friend and they started chasing us. We peddled like crazy and turns out they were just having a race :P

Sunny-THATS HORRIBLE! I feel sorry for everyone caught in it.

They say home is where the heart is. That must mean my home is ontop of an Angel getting ready to fly.

Although I couldn't find a video of the actual tornado of Smithville Like sunny did of Tuscaloosa. But here is the Aftermath in Smithville after an F5. I would like to volunteer to help clean up for it is only 15 miles away from me, but I'm to nervous about coming across a fatality. I don't know if I'm fit to handle that yet.
