View Full Version : Weather Tornado's

I have seen a tornado or two in my life. (only 23) But I have always been fascinated by these storms. The damage they do is awful, but the storms themselves are fascinating. I also admit that I am frankly a pussy when it comes to storms of this magnitude. I hate driving at night if there is a tornado watch or even if we are in a slight risk area for storms.

So what's everyone's consensus on Tornado's? Anyone else follow the SPC quite often and share my fascination of these freakish storms?

What I have for tornado's is not a fascination. It is a fear and a loathing.

They blow.

When I was in radio several years ago, three of us took off from the station with a bottle of jack and a case of beer and chased after one. We did several "live reports." After a few of hours, our live reports ended, because we were having WAY to much fun.

I've always wanted to chase one- But I'm no idiot. I'll leave that to the "professorial" storm chasers :shake:

Little sensitive seeing as that was less than a year ago, then less than a week ago Pitt was hit by the wind strength of an f1 or f2. It wasn't deemed a tornado, but it was too close for me.

I can't think of a positive thing that comes from those fuckers and refuse to sit in awe of them.

I saw one when I was about 8. We were jumping in the car to head to the emergency shelter, and it was scary as heck. It didn't damage our house, but there was a church across the street from us that had a sign on two metal poles that were like flagpoles, and it twisted the sign around. That's a hard thing to do, I would think.

It's very ****ing simple, people. Really.

#1: If it indicates belonging, put in an apostrophe. The dog's collar. The car's muffler.

#2: If it's plural, put it on the outside. The players' helmets. The testicles' pubes.

#3: It can be used to shorten and connect words, substituting in places for "not", "did", "am", "is", "had", and can also be used to shorten the start of some words. You don't know shit. That's right. He's a moron. Where's my hooker. I'm going to pound her in the butt. You'd better back up 'cause I don't know how big this gets. Where'd you put the shovel, we need to bury her.

THAT'S ****ING IT!! THOSE ARE WHERE YOU USE IT!! YOU DON'T JUST PUT ONE IN EVERY TIME YOU ****ING PLURALIZE SOMETHING!! FOR ****'S SAKE!!

(Note: I'm not really sure where that expression comes from, so that apostrophe may go on the outside, or may not even be needed.)

We went through an F5 ripping up my hometown in '91. Before it hit the town, we were watching it move in and it was horrifying. My parents loaded us, (along w/ our dog), in the car and we drove North away from the storm. When we returned, our town was destroyed and they almost didn't let us back in. Luckily, my dad knew the cops and they let us pass.

Our house wasn't hit, but the strip mall my dad's business was in had some damage. We couldn't drive to our house, due to the debris on the roads, so we slept in my dad's shop. One of my brothers joined up w/ a search group to look for survivors and he found his ex-gf deceased. He was in pretty bad shape mentally after witnessing that.

Tornadoes are fascinating, but after having one hit my town, I never want to see another one.

I remember living in Lindsborg KS one summer and the tornado sirens went off. Like a fool I went outside (I felt safer outside than the dirt bag house I was staying in). I remember seeing 7 different tails (actual rotation and a defined tail) drop from the sky, then jump right back up in about 5 minutes. They said all 7 touched down less than 2 miles from where I was. That was a very surreal moment for me.

And yes I am fascinated by them, and I have seen or been close (even driven through two) to over a dozen in my lifetime.

I am fascinated by them but I know what they can do. When I lived in Wichita I saw two of them, the Andover tornado in 1991, it was coming straight at our neighborhood when it was at F5 strenght and veered to the east of us, so we got lucky there. Either later that year or the next year I saw another smaller one between Andover and Augusta. Then I saw the 2009 Murfreesboro tornado when it was in devlopment stage. I was watching it when it was a wall cloud, it dissapeared behind some hills and trees. Then I heard this high pitch squeling like sound, then the rumble and roar of a tornado on the ground. I had to head to a well house for shelter and the tornado ripped the roof of the thing and broke a pipe while I was in there. It came withing 50-100 yards of where I was.

Are you ****ing doubting me you conniving little bitch? I was born and raised in Jacksonville, FL on january 14, 1988.

Graduated in 2006, went to the University of Florida for 2 1/2 years, didn't do shit, got kicked out, came back to Jacksonville, did nothing for another 2 years. Started going to Florida State College at Jacksonville from 2010 up to now, and now finishing my AA in order to transfer to KSU for Architectural Engineering. Now bitch, tell me I've never been to Florida again. We had earthquake drills in elem and middle school. Either you are 10 years old or were too old to notice the world pass you by or some shit.

I've seen 4 tornadoes (one was later defined as a microburst, but I will debate that for as long as I'm alive)

1) First real vivid memory. 3 years old, living in Enid OK. Watched one in a field across from my parents house. Yes, all of the neighbors, including my folks, stood outside on our driveways watching the thing. It was pretty far off though.

2) Down in Wichita for some family thing. Must've been 9 or 10. Saw one drop out of a wall cloud while we were getting on I-35 to head back to KC. Nothing impressive really.

3) One rolled through Lawrence in May 2003. Watched it tear up a few apartment complexes in SW Lawrence from my work. I was a good 2-3 miles away from it (in NW Larry) and a bunch of debris (insulation, papers, glass, etc) came flying down in the parking lot where I was watching it.

4) Final one (microburst according to NWS) was in March 2006. I remember it was a Sunday morning, probably around 7am or so. I woke up to what sounded like a train outside my bedroom window. Started off real distant, then just got louder and louder. I peeked through my blinds to see a tree completely bent over (top was touching the ground) and then noticed the twister about 5 houses down. Closed the blinds, house started shaking, then it moved on. Roommates at the time, both deep sleepers, woke up yelling 'WTF was that'. Not much structural damage in my neighborhood other than some shingles and siding getting ripped off. A house a little ways down the street had it's garage door ripped out. The damage got worse as it moved east through town, but nothing crazy. As mentioned, the NWS eventually classified it as a microburst, but that's bs.

I lived in a trailer before the big one hit and had one scary incident. The sirens sounded and there was no shelter to go to. You would think that there would be trailer park requirements for tornado shelters, but there was none. No shelter for miles.

So I would think that it would be a lack of options.

Sometimes there is nowhere to go, the choices might be trailer, car, or open field in a ditch or something. All pretty dangerous.

Just curious but wtf would you have earthquake drills in Florida?

Exactly my point. I don't know but we did. Duval county school board wasn't very smart in those days. They have marginally wised up since then.

I met Gonzo 3 years after the tornado and there were plenty of "losers" before him.

Yeah, I should have revised that to read, "a few" but trust me, they were all losers until Gonzo. And no, I didn't sleep w/ any of them. Which is what I assume you were thinking?

Regardless, we're not talking about titty twisters in this thread, so keep on topic, ass-munch! :p

Here’s a tornado crossing Grand Lake in north east Oklahoma last year. About an hour later the same storm dropped an F5 on Joplin.

Hmmmm, none of those options are good, but I'd probably go with the car. Drive as fast as you can away from the tornado.

If I had no other option to living in a mobile home, I'd be digging and rigging a shelter of my own. It may be dirty, cramped, and water-logged, but we would survive.

Are you ****ing doubting me you conniving little bitch? I was born and raised in Jacksonville, FL on january 14, 1988. I grew up in a neighborhood called Tiffany Pines on McCormick road for over 20 years. I went to Sabal Palm Elem, then R.L. Brown Elem., then to Darnell Cookman middle school, then Paxon School for Advanced Studies for high school. Graduated in 2006, went to the University of Florida for 2 1/2 years, didn't do shit, got kicked out, came back to Jacksonville, did nothing for another 2 years. Started going to Florida State College at Jacksonville from 2010 up to now, and now finishing my AA in order to transfer to KSU for Architectural Engineering. Now bitch, tell me I've never been to Florida again. We had earthquake drills in elem and middle school. Either you are 10 years old or were too old to notice the world pass you by or some shit. Don't ever tell me I know nothing about Florida. Just don't. /rant

Oh yeah, I'm sure Florida schools in Duval County were always having "earthquake drills" since not only do they never have them, but there is no way to predict the things. ROFL And you still haven't explained how you don't know what a tornado is.

Most tornadoes by state:

Top 5 states with highest incidence of tornadoes (average per year, 1950–2007): Texas (139), Oklahoma (57), Kansas (55), Florida (55), Nebraska (45)

Hmm...4th most tornadoes in the nation for Florida, yet your school was having "earthquake drills", huh?...

I didn't say we had the drills because we had an actual earthquake dipshit. I said regardless of how carzy that sounds, we had them. And when the **** did I say I didn't know what a goddam tornado was? I said I haven't had experience with them and want to know what to do since I'm going to college in manhattan, ks in the fall.

It looks like it will be an active couple of days...

The SPC (storm prediction center) already has a moderate risk in their day-3 outlook for east-central Kansas (wichita is basically at the heart) and central Oklahoma.

To put this into perspective (source--a bored meteorology grad student I have connections to who researched and blogged about this), this is only the 11th day-3 moderate risk outlook the spc has issued in the past decade. Every single time there have been multiple storms producing tornadoes in the risk area. And, if I remember right, 4 of the 10 have seen outbreaks, including last year's late-april GA, MS, AL super-outbreak.

They are not forecasting anything that bad for KS/OK on Saturday, but they do think there is a good probability of large long-track tornadoes.

Just something to keep an eye on if you're in that area.

I saw the one that hit downtown Moberly in 94?? I think. There was baseball sized hail before it came through. I knew a guy that lived in a trailer and it was picked up by a tornado at night while he was sleeping and dropped in a lake! Could you imagine dying like that? Think about it... you're deep in sleep then you dream you;re drowning only to wake up in the pitch black freezing cold and realize you really are drowning. This incident happened a few years ago, It was a separate incident from the Moberly tornado, but it's such a crazy story I had to tell it.
