    Tornado

    At 3:40 this afternoon a tornado went over my house. Trees bent over parallel to the ground, hail the size of a quarter, wind, rain, and yes it does sound like a train roaring. Took shingles off our roof and uprooted a HUGE tree like it was a twigg about 50 yards from my house. I was calm, but cautiously afraid while it was happening. I simply took the dogs and took cover. After it was over and I saw how easily this tree was uprooted, honestly it freaked me out. Jerked it up, root ball and all. SCAREY, Folks, a few miles from us lost their whole roof. A few shingles and a few hours with no power...we got out of this easy

    Already called the insurance to have someone check the roof.

    I'm so grateful it wasn't worse.


    Prayers to all in the path if these storms
    Keep the Faith

    How scary. Most weather doesn't bother me, but I do not like wind. Glad you are alright. Things can be replaced...you can't.

        I was in an F5 here in IL 25 years ago, and it was scarier afterward than during the storm. I swear, the adrenaline doesn't stop for days.

              Glad to hear you are alright, if a bit shaken up.

              I heard the national weather report tonight on the news, and it sounds as if the Eastern folks are in for a spell of bad weather that includes tornados all the way to New Jersey!

                Thank the Lord!

                I get scared with storms -- even severe thunderstorms! My hubby's grandfather was killed in a tornado before or shortly after my hubby was born. We don't fool around when it's time to take shelter!

                Prayers for a safe 2015 for everyone!

                    I'm sorry you had to experience that and so relieved to hear you're alright. Sound like you pretty much dodged a bullet.

                      Hey Liz
                      i thought about you when I was watching the news - as well as many of our other forum family experiencing these storms. We were also under a tornado warning, siren blasting, lots of wind, wierd rain - hubs was in the middle of the bad area on his way home with the hail; he was unaware of the warning. Hope insurance does right by you

                        It's so good to hear you weren't injured. We had a Derecho on May 9, 2009 (combined tornado and cyclone) and we lost 180 trees, severe damage all over our town and nearly every water main broke due to the earth shaking so bad. We were without water or power for more than 2 weeks. We are still cleaning up the mess 6 years later.

                        Even if you are in doubt whether a tornado is approaching or not, it's smart to take cover.
