My aunt and uncle lived there when the 1-mile-wide tornado went through many years ago. They were spared.

To my Oklahoma FR brothers and sisters:
-
Here in Georgia,
we have tornadoes from time to time.
They usually just pop up from out of nowhere in a passing thunderstorm.

We typically don’t get very much warning.

They will just pop up all of a sudden, drop down, tear up things, and go away.

I don’t know if it is because of topography or geography,
or what, but y’all seem to get a least a little bit of waring before you get hit.

I don’t know which is worse...
...knowing one is coming...
...or having one pop up out of nowhere...

...but my prayers are with you, my FR brothers and sisters.
