I hope everyone who lives around there or was in the path of this storm is okay. Sad

I have parents in Georgia and other relatives, even lived in GA fo a while. Those tornados are definitely serious! Several had passed by both family and friends back then.

Here in South Carolina, we get some severe storms. My first year living down here was marked with the first tornado I ever saw. It was amazing.

But the real storms to watch out for where I live, those monsters called hurricanes. But it's easier to get out of the way of a hurricane, rather than a tornado.

There were two tornadoes, well, one was actually a waterspout. The one I saw touched down near the airport.

This here is the waterspout.

HOLY! That's one big waterspout! and are those specks on the beach people watching this monster? And I do agree with the hurricanes, my brother was caught in Katrina while he was taking flight school.


I nearly got hit by two tornados when I was still in Elementary school, once when I was sleeping in the den, and once during school in the middle of a thunderstorm that sounded like atomic bombs exploding around O.=.o That waterspout looked like an F2 or F3 size, not quite big enough for F4, but still something to watchout for.

I just saw this today, I had just taken a flight out an hour before the tornado from Atlanta (yes I go to school there yay yellow jackets) but thank you for your hopes, they mean a lot. Very lucky it wasn't worse and that no one was killed. Smile

Makes me glad I live in a place where tornadoes are the last thing you worry about, and by the time hurricanes get here they're reduced to tropical storms.
A couple of the few good things about New Jersey. ^^;

Oh really? I was actually at the Georgia Tech campus the day of the tornadoes.

My friend's friend's house was destroyed, and his dog was killed. Fortunately no people where harmed, but losing a pet like that must be awful.
