          Its kind of crazy. so many ef4s already. 17 reported tornados today along a 100mile stretch.

          Kind of scares me when i see another incoming storm from the artic that looks similar to this one.

          It looks like its not gunna stop hitting over and over.

          This could be one another record breaking season.

          I just hope we dont see any more EF5s like in Joplin. That will hurt an area it passes thru for decades with recovery

            20 minutes from here. Wife grew up in those woods.

            Pretty crazy. We lucked out this time. Not everyone did. Fortunately, the death tolls seem pretty low for the size and number of tornados.
