Severe Storms in Wichita. Large Tornado moving into Southwest part of city. Haysville, Derby, Wichita especially in the crosshairs. We're hunkered down here and prepared. It looks like it might miss us, but there are more storms expected tonight. Looks like a long evening. Stay Safe!

The grapefruit/softball size variety hit here some years ago. Totaled all four vehicles on our place. Destroyed every roof and north-facing window in our town. It was sureal.

I’m 100 miles east of there. I wouldn’t ever want to be driving and see something like that.

I saw it myself in the New Palestine, Indiana Tornado, back in 19080/81(?). I was at a buddy’s house just three miles south.

Right through the roof, right through the plaster ceilings.
Destroyed my car, even though it was under a tree.

Up here in NW IA we’ve still got a few cells moving either across the top of us or just south of us.

Looks like we dodged the worst stuff for the second time in a day though.

Gonna have to hit the sack pretty soon here. Still have lots of lightning and thunder, but it looks like things are going to calm down.

I remember Rushville, Indiana suffered major damage from a tornado around 1980. I wonder if it was the same storm?

I’ve been watching tornado chasers tonight. The guys I was watching were in a tornado...I only came onto their live streaming, by coincidence, immediately after it happened. Spent the next couple of hours monitoring the towns they were driving through. It’s been real bad tonight apparently. I heard a town (Kansas or Oklahoma...don’t remember), was “wiped out”. That happened maybe a couple hours ago.

Heard tomorrow’s to be bad too.

This is just awful for all these people.

Was that a couple hours ago maybe? If so, then that might have been the place they were referring to. It was definitely within the past few hours.

Yeah. I think Woodward got hit about 12:20 Central time, if I remember right. I’ve been watching stuff pretty close tonight because these storms having been blowing up west of us and moving through.

Looks like the worst of it is past us now.

On a bright note, our whole region needed rain badly, and we got some. Thank God for that.

Our country sure has had a lot of natural disasters/weather issues the past few years. I don’t suspect it’s a coincidence.

Praying that it will all calm down though....and that good will come out of this.

Severe Weather May Continue After Twisters, Storms Pound Midwest

Injuries reported in Oklahoma town and small Iowa town reportedly nearly destroyed, though no deaths have yet been reported after over three dozen tornadoes reportedly touched down across the Midwest, as forecasters say severe weather could continue Sunday.

I’ve been in a hailstorm before, that stripped vegetation and banged cars up pretty badly. The only thing I could compare as far as the sound would be being in a metal garbage can while it was pelted with gravel continuously for over a half hour. Left two inches worth on the ground, thick ground fog formed as it melted.

That was minor compared to some of these reports.
