  • Ohio Tornados Tonight

    I know there are a lot of fellow Ohioans who are members here, so I thought I'd check in and see how we all are after that rash of Tornados tonight.

    As for me (Holmes Co.), I spent about 2 hours huddled with my fellow workers in the center of the building waiting for things to calm down after the town warning siren went off. The rain sounded like it was going to break through our skylights and the thunder made me jump a few times.

    A few of us ventured outside the building a couple of times to try and see how things looked. Someone said they saw a funnel cloud in the distance, and one touched down in a nearby town, but they bypassed where I was.

    The drive home from work was a bit nerve wracking as there was standing water in a lot of spots that caused a little hydroplaning. No downed trees or power lines though, so I felt fortunate.

    Mostly it was just icky and a little scary, but not really dangerous. I'm hoping the rest of you in Ohio fared as well...

    Glad you're ok Jak. It must have been quite scary. I too hope the rest had an easier go of it. Weather patterns have been wild all over. But its always good to hear good news.

      Yikes!! I second Debbies sentiments Jak. Glad you missed the main event. That must have been horrifying. I guess we all deal with Mother Natures wrath no matter where we live. We lucked out here in South Florida and had a quiet storm season this year.

        Jak, I didn't hear the news this morning, so didn't realize how bad the tornadoes were. The news this afternoon sounded horrific. Sure glad you're OK!!

          I've been reading about the tornadoes on CNN and it sounds horrible! glad to hear you're OK. that can't have been fun just having to sit there and wait for it to go past not really knowing whats gonna happen.

            Glad you are ok Jak...sounds like you were very lucky. I have been through a few tornadoes and it's certainly not fun sitting around, barricaded inside not knowing what is happening.

              Wild fires
              by jeaniesa
              While I'm not in any danger with existing fires, having been near enough to one two years ago to pack my car with irreplacables (i.e., photos and computer), the wild fires raging in CO right now have me on edge.

              The latest news on the fire near Denver is that it's 10 miles from the SW...

              Torrential rains and wind expected in Phoenix
              by bpurvis
              Man, we hardly ever get rain, but when we do... The 2nd massive storm system heading east from the coast should hit us tonight and drop 4 or more inches in 2 days. That's as much rain as we often get in a year. Wind advisory warns of serious gusts.

              People I have to tell you that I'm...

              Too much media coverage since 9-11?
              by DJ Dubovsky
              Just curious, but since the disaster of September 11, has all the media coverage helped you be more informed or is it giving you too much news and scaring the heck out of you? I know I am still eager to know what's going on but sometimes there is so much news going on that it gets a bit over whelming....
