I hope nobody lost their lives in the storms Byron. As bad as it sounds though, I'd take my chances with storms coming through here to get the rain. Seems nothing comes in anything but extremes anymore. It's still rough up there and heading Casey's way. Keep safe those in the path, and hope all those affected get the needed help.

Man, as wild as those storms look on radar, I'd have bet on good rains. Another case of extremes! Hope injuries are all there is, and that is too much.

Wow, didn't get anything like that here yet. A little thunder bumper last nite and small hail in it, but nothing like those winds.

All you guys please stay safe in it's path.
