Hope everybody's ok... Lawrence popped...

...with a microburst or a small tornado. Seemed to form by Clinton lake, popped my neighborhood with small to medium damage, then tore up a few neighborhoods east and north of here. Power lines down, trees uprooted and knocked over. Pretty nasty in places. No reports of injuries.

Scary part is that the thing moved through here, and then the sirens sounded.

Hope everyone is good. We live out in Shawnee, and our sirens did go off.

Don't we all feel comfortable with the govt. handling our safety?

The Tornado Sirens are now under control of the Department of Homeland Security. Maybe they think it would be better if Lawrence got wiped off the map?

Read about it , hope all is OK.

I know at 2:00 am today, I was sleeping well when the sirens went off here for the watch. I had kids and young adults all running to my room wondering if we needed to take cover.

Nope, go back to bed kids, just a watch...... but somehow, that wasn't a good enough answer for them until 4:00am. The watch expired at 8:00 am today. It was a long night.

Or maybe, like most other govt operations, they were asleep at the wheel.

as long as we are in white neighborhoods, I think we'll be OK. they sure responded pretty quickly in May of 2000 when the biggest tornados ever hit my hometown of Moore, OK.

Expires 12:00 PM CST on March 12, 2006

urgent - immediate broadcast requested
Severe Thunderstorm Watch number 69
NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK
505 am CST sun Mar 12 2006

The NWS Storm Prediction Center has issued a
Severe Thunderstorm Watch for portions of

central and eastern Kansas

Effective this Sunday morning from 505 am until noon CST.

Hail to 2 inches in diameter... thunderstorm wind gusts to 70
mph... and dangerous lightning are possible in these areas.

The Severe Thunderstorm Watch area is approximately along and 90
statute miles north and south of a line from 40 miles south of
Russell Kansas to 45 miles north northeast of Chanute Kansas. For
a complete depiction of the watch see the associated watch outline
update (wous64 kwns wou9).

Remember... a Severe Thunderstorm Watch means conditions are
favorable for severe thunderstorms in and close to the watch area.
Persons in these areas should be on the lookout for threatening
weather conditions and listen for later statements and possible
warnings. Severe thunderstorms can and occasionally do produce
tornadoes.

Other watch information... continue... ww 68...

Discussion... elevated tstms are beginning to develop over S-cntrl KS
within increasingly strong low-level moist and thermal advection
regime. This activity is expected to increase in areal coverage and
intensity this morning nwd through cntrl and ern KS. Given MUCAPES
of 1000-1500 j/kg and 50-60 kts of effective bulk shear... organized
severe storms capable of large hail appear likely.

Aviation... a few severe thunderstorms with hail surface and aloft
to 2 inches. Extreme turbulence and surface wind gusts to 60
knots. A few cumulonimbi with maximum tops to 400. Mean storm
motion vector 24035.


I hope you guys are okay.

Got some pretty good hail here in Parkville. Somewhere between quarter and golf ball sized. I got some minor hail damage on my car. At one point I was worried that it would break the windows out.

I'd check to make sure the Douglas County DHS guy isn't named "Quantrill."

We had sirens going off in my neighborhood yesterday evening. They must've been testing them, because the weather never got that severe.
