The good news is everybody was warned and had a plan in their minds to be somewhere ~safe. We won’t see fatalities and injuries like we did with Granbury. Mass destruction but everything will be rebuilt, shiny and new.

Unfortunately, no. Fatality already reported and numerous vehicles were overturned at the I-40 and 177 intersection.

Busting out all over the the plains. I hope all Freepers in the affected states are keeping an eye out for warnings and taking them seriously if they do happen.

We had a tornado warning here in Calhoun County earlier. The sirens even went off. Which was bad, because we had about 75 people gathered for my son’s graduation reception. But, thankfully, all we got out of it was some high winds and heavy rain. Sure ended the party in a hurry though!
