Prayer said for all up there. (We get our fair share of tornadoes down here in northern Alabama.)

I could never figure out in tornado videos taken in Kansas etc. where the traffic on highways just keep on going like nothing unusual.
Are they that used to it that they know which way the tornado is going?

I didn't think so. I lived in VT for three years and no one ever mentioned tornadoes. I recall some pretty wicked wind and thunderstorms though.

I’ll keep my eyes peeled. If I see a twister, i’ll report it to Whitehouse.gov on the double.

Yes, I was surprised at the forecast, given what the radar shows. Not sure how they issue a watch when there aren’t big t-storm cells/lines. Maybe based on computer models?

I've lived in New England all my life and the only tornado I've ever heard of is a big one that happened in central Massachusetts in the mid 1950’s.

I blame this on my husband. Whenever he’s away, bad weather arrives.

We had an F2 on the ground for 40 miles, on a S-N track in 2008.

It was amazing how it took the forest like a vacuum cleaner.
Passed 1/2 mile from my house.

That was the White City tornado in Worcester, June 9, 1953. I remember as a kid, the family driving out there to gawk at the damage. It was an F4.

CT’s gotten a few. Here’s a sampling:

July 29, 1971: An F3 (some sources say F2) moved along Main Street in downtown Waterbury, unroofing a factory and damaging some houses. Two people were injured.[56][43]
* July 10, 1989: The Northeastern United States tornado outbreak of 1989 produced at least three tornadoes in Litchfield and New Haven Counties, causing more than $100 million in damage. The first tornado, possibly a family of three tornadoes, destroyed Cathedral Pines Forest, and caused F2 damage to trees and homes in Cornwall, Milton, and Bantam, injuring four people.[60] The second tornado, also an F2, unroofed or severely damaged 50 homes and injured 70 people on a path through Watertown, Oakville, and northern Waterbury. The final tornado was one of the worst in Connecticut history, cutting a 5-mile (8 km) path through Hamden. The F4 destroyed almost 400 structures and injured 40 people. No one was killed by these devastating tornadoes, though a girl was killed when straight-line winds blew a tree onto her tent.
* June 29, 1990: An F0 briefly touched down in Danbury. Seven people were injured by flying glass.[11]

I'm in Okla. Most times we have plenty of warning, if one listens to the weather, that is. If not one can get caught out and nothing to do but keep driving, away from it that is.

I had such an experience 2 yrs. ago. Beautiful day, warm, weatherman did not have any danger for that day to tell us. WELL then, there, now,

I was driving home on I40, looked ahead at a massive black cloud. WHAT THE HEY is that, oh my gosh, turned on the radio, yep, Tornado coming.

We were going pretty fast and about to turn North off the interstate, my husband said keep going. Oh boy. Turning north left the cloud now behind us. Then it started to rain, BIG HAIL bombarded my truck. We were now fully committed, no were to stop for cover. Made it home finally with large dents in truck.

That's how it happens sometimes. We have the great Gary England of the movie "Twister" for our weatherman, best in the country, but this one stumped him as well, didn't see it coming.

She told me brain trust that runs NOAA thinks folks will pay more attention if it's ALL CAPS. I guess if they put in BOLD letters we're really screwed.
