    A tornado ripped through the area at 2:00 am. My prayers are offered.

    Indiana Star reports 9 Dead. Absolute tragedy. I hope no one on this board lost anybody.

    Ah, there's nothing more exciting than science. You get all the fun of sitting still, being quiet, writing down numbers, paying attention... Science has it all.

      Comcast says 15 dead. Prayers from here as well. A tragedy.

      Side note: Has anyone noticed lately that nowadays, autumn seems just as deadly for tornadoes in Indiana as is spring?

        ...yup, I noticed that when I was hit by the September tornado in 2002.

          a terrible tragedy, probably made worse due to the timing.

              Here is another link

              Doesn't look good. Not normal to see this much, this time of year.
              Even here in North Texas where we get so many.

                I thought of the people on this board the second I heard of this.

                My thoughts are with you all. At least with hurricanes we get some warning. That's got to be scary.
                It's a brand new day.

                  They are VERY scarey. You don't really know it's comming a lot of times until it just HITS. I been through some.

                  F2 Twister hit my work in Mesquite Texas about 10 years ago. We were watching the rain.. Real hard, and pitch black in the afternoon. Power went out.. Rain started going at an angle, them more of an angle, then sideways. So we backed off the window as a LOT of lightning opened up, and thunder got louder, and louder.

                  Then the rain started going UP! Windows went out, and the big AC unit for the whole building on the roof flew off. Landed 200 yards away, at the end of the strip mall we are in.

                  No MAJOR damage other than the AC unit and windows, and no injuries. Was REAL scarey..

                  btw, constant loud tunder getting louder and louder over about 10 minutes, is a twister, not tunder. (seemed like 10 minutes anyway)

                  Prayers as always with the people who go through any of these terrable things. Even if they are not hurt, it will take them a day or so to really grasp what they went through.

                        It is always bad when they hit trailer parks square on. They don't have to be too strong to do major damage.

                        On edit: Here is something of interest, if you're ever watching your local weather coverage:

                        Governor Ernie Fletcher is touring homes and businessses damaged by a tornado in Munfordville in south-central Kentucky. The governor's tour comes amid the sound of chain saws buzzing.

                        The Hart County town was hit by one of at least two tornadoes that touched down early Sunday.
                        I was watching 2 Louisville stations cover this storm. Both were using (different) radar pictures to tell people where the storm was & whether or not to take shelter. One station was reporting that the tornado was moving over Munfordville proper, while the other was reporting that it was at least 8 miles to the North of town.

                        My point is not to assume that tornadoes are as "accurate" as the weather guys make them sound sometimes. If there is a warning for your area, take shelter, even if the guy on TV thinks it is not threatening your immediate location.
                        One driver's "fuel strategy" is another driver's "speed up or we will park you!"
