I just looked out back and things are blown over and around. I will have some 'straightening up' to do this evening. Things I wouldn't have thought of blowing over, are laying down.
P.S. Went out and picked up things. No damage anywhere apparent. Put my 8' windmill back up, 10" spikes didn't hold it upright. Everyone have a good day.

The squall line is an hour or less away & wicked. Hoping on hope we don't get any damage. Owensboro, Ky has transformers exploding from lines hitting, plus a confirmed funnel cloud about to touch down there.

First batch of storms went thru LOTS of lightning and shifting big winds, trees & etc, but no twisters.

Looks like the one that went past you guys is swinging our way. Stay safe everyone!

Hope the rains cool it for a few days so things can dry up some everywhere. Still haven't heard from a few folks, but they may have been here when I was at work. I know a lot of you folks that farm are having a real tough time getting crops in. I would just like to walk across the yard without it going 'squish, squish'.

Hopefully everyone made it through the night with minimal damage. I'm home from work, there's a drooped power line within inches of my car and I'm Not going near it. The saw will get to work today though, big limbs down and at least 1 tree destroyed. I've got to go back out now that it's light enough to see.

Sorry to hear of your damage. I'd keep everyone away from that line/car, also.
