On the 19th an F-1 tornado ripped through my area with a path of 16 miles long. This barn and many others, along with several trannsmission towers were taken out. No reported deaths bu a good many were injured. This is just a little tiny bit of what it did.

Sorry for the damage. Mother Nature has a weird sense of humor. Glad no deaths with this.

We've had our share of them around here too. If anyone has never experienced a tornado, consider yourself very lucky.

The last one that came thru these parts and caused serious damage was an F2 several years ago. I dont think anyone was was killed locally, but one fella was killed the next day, cutting up a tree that had been twisted and knocked down. There is a tremendous amount of stored energy in a twisted tree... Kinda like a clock spring... He was working by himself too.
