Twisters? Please Report in if You are in Affected States

Hi,

If you or your family or friends live in areas affected by yesterday's and today's tornadoes, please let us know whether or not you are OK and safe.

Thanks.

Yep I was just thinking about that last night. Those were so scary... and they are predicting more today? Yikes! I'm glad I'm in PA, no scary stuff like that, but we did have an earthquake not too long ago and that was so strange!

An earthquake in PA? I don't think of them happening there. Thought they were more in our part of the country, along the west coast, which is not comforting in the least to me!

I rather "enjoy" living in the earthquake state ... at least we don't KNOW about them before they hit... LOL I'd be a WRECK if I KNEW a tornado was heading our way...

There was a very widespread 5.0 earthquake, centered in Virginia, last year. They had to repair the Washington Monument, and the quake was felt for at least 1,000 miles north-south.

Yep see below... that was what we felt.

That must have been the one we felt. My husband and I were both home, kids were sleeping I think, the windows rattled for a while kind of like when a plane flies too low. I said earthquake right off and we turned on the tv and got confirmation.

It was so nice here today after the washout yesterday! Timmy made two loops around the circle on his walk with his lady dog friends today, and touched noses with a labradoodle on our walk this morning, he's making great progress.

Even though Harrisburg is in my state (IL) it is about 3.5 hours south of me. However, my husband was only about 25 miles away from there travelling for his job when it hit. They had bad storms where he was but nothing even close to the tornado. I was certainly relieved to hear from him after I saw all the destruction on the news.

You know, now that I think about it more, I do recall hearing about an earthquake in the eastern part of the country last year.

Those tornadoes would be scary, and especially to be out driving and one happen. Not having lived in tornado country, what are you supposed to do when you find yourself in the vicinity of one when you are out on the road? Or do you usually have enough warning that people stay off the roads when they are predicted? I am thinking about ignorant travelers, I guess, that are traveling from areas that don't have them. Is this the season now when tornadoes typically occur?
