Default Tornados in the South

I know the title sounds like a joke, but really it isn't. I was watching the news, and the southern United States are being hit hard by tornados. Any members in that area, please take shelter, and after the tornado warnings have been lifted let us know that you are okay.

Here in Oklahoma, when the storm sirens go off, thats the signal to run outside and look for the tornado

Been watching it on and off today at www.spc.noaa.gov Its just warm, windy and REALLY humid here today.

Here'* one story on it. Checking radar, it looks like the storms are moving north out of Nebraska into North and South Dakota, western Iowa and Minnesota.

quite right. and if you cant see one from where you are, get the family in the truck and chase after one.

Been watching the local news all evening, they have had continious coverage since about 7pm, wiped completely thru a small town in western OK, Kansas under the gun even worse now. Watched live on TV as a large tornado crossed interstate 40 in the TX panhandle literally feet from the news truck, with cars still driving right alongside it!

So far, just tornados sweeping along past here. nothing to report. Used to chase these things. Once you've had that rush, there'* just nothing like it...
