    used to live in Pennsylvania...I never seen a one, but plenty of warnings.

    a town I lived for while was hit by an f4 in 84. you would walk down the sidewalk and see empty land plots where houses used to be.



    im currently living in florida. rain,alots of rain, wind and thunder.

    only thunderstorms, really really small tornadoes very rarely. Loads of rain and sometimes proper snowstorms. Nothing bad really.

    We get them frequently, not quite in tornado alley but close.

    Sirens basically mean it's time to go outside, and stare at the sky like a true midwestern redneck. I really need to make a storm shelter sometime. When a good storm comes through the sky practically boils, and looks extremely disturbing. I've looked up at the sky and seen the storm clouds moving in from every direction, which really isn't supposed to happen. I normally don't get under the house, but it was enough to overcome my fear of the spiders that time.

    Mostly bad thunder storms if not a hurricane with floods.Our Northern range chain of mountains shield us most of the time.Hurricane season is about to start and i was hoping it would be a quiet one but there are at least 4 depressions out there right now with hurricane forming potential already.

    My prayers are with the families of those affected by those twisters, looks like a nuke dropped, damn.

    Nope, but we do get warm summers(and when i say warm, i mean it)

    The only tornados I've seen are the ones on Destroyed in Seconds..

    Same, luckily they rarely hit populated areas, Tornado Alley can be a rough area.

    I'm on the edge of the Midwest and Appalachia, so Tornadoes are possible and do happen, but big ones are very unlikely here. Still, I've seen a steel grain silo weighing many tons be literally ripped in half and the upper part thrown 200 ft (60m) away like it was nothing. I was in N.C. many years ago when a tornado moved across the T.N. border and hit the mountains - bounced up, broke into several smaller tornadoes that proceeded to literally bounce around the mountains until they wore out (locals called it a spider tornado). One of those little tornadoes came down off the road to our right and started throwing full sized ash and oak trees all over the place. You're supposed to lie in a ditch if a tornado catches you on the open road - well the wind was so strong I could not open the door more than 1-2". I should probably have been smushed by a tree or taken off to see Ozz with Dorothy and Toto, but that was 15+ years ago and I'm still here. :nerd:
