Tornado's and destruction

Postby rabbit » Jun 1st, '11, 21:56

So I lived thru something pretty crazy today. Here are the pictures and a video.

This is just one street over from where I live, I saw the tornado form from where I work, sadly not everybody made it :( I saw a big tree on top of a car with someone inside.

Glad to hear you are OK, Rabbit!

It has been a crazy year for tornados, even in MA.

Glad you made it through OK. I have family up in that area. When I saw the CNN headlines for Springfield last night I was shocked! Luckily no one in my family was directly impacted.

Glad you're ok Rabbit.

Growing up in North Texas I saw more than my fair share of these events. they can be shockingly destructive, and shockingly random. :(
