I live in eastern oklahoma and we have had tornadoes in winter!!!!! If you live in oklahoma anything can happen weather related. Anything.
Having just lived through the Jefferson City, Missouri EF3 tornado, I can say that it was a strange calm for just a few minutes immediately following a big thunderstorm, and then immediately followed with hail, which is unusual to have AFTER a thunderstorm here. The tornado hit close to midnight so we wouldn’t have seen anything had we tried to look outside. What forced us into our basement shelter room was hearing huge sustained winds – NOT common at all after a thunderstorm here. I didn’t find out until the next day when power was restored that the tornado’s path was only a few hundred feet from our street. I’ve previously been on the fringes of a tornado when traveling on a state highway and had to pull over due to golf ball sized hail. So it was hearing hail AFTER what sounded like a calm pause after the thunderstorm that completely unnerved me. Hearing the sustained winds definitely made me run for our shelter room.
When Tornado’s come get to the Storm Cellar

Hey I am Faith and I live on the Eastwrn edge of Tornado Ally. We have had tornados hot all around us but they have always been at night sowecoulsnwverswe them coming. Right now though it is 3:40 In the afternoon and we just had a thunderstorm and were issued a tornado watch. The sky has become increasingly dark but there is no wind… Do you think there is a tornado?
We appreciate you checking out articles that “fit” you and reaching out for suggestions. These types of natural disasters happens and is unavoidable in such areas. Some of the best advice we could give you is to simply to make sure you have plenty of food storage to sustain you in any type of natural disaster, and make sure to keep it stored in a safe space, such as a lower level storage area or basement.
Hey y’all! So I just moved to Mississippi for school from Louisiana, so obviously tornados atent the first thing I think about. However, I have PTSD from losing my house in Hurricane Gustav in whatcha we suspect had to be a small tornado. As the frequency of tornadoes in Hattiesburg, Mississippi is increasing, you can see how this makes me a little uneasy. For instance, today it should rain all day according to forecasts, but i can’t shake this uneasy feeling! People from or living on the tornado zone of America, I might just be overreacting, but is there any more advice you can give me? Just thinks like: on a day like this where more than 10 hours of rain is expected, should I prepare for a possible tornado? If it helps, there are no systems in the gulf right now. I figured that would be important info since Hattiesburg is just an hour away from the coast. I’m also from Baton Rouge. Thanks!

I barely survived a tornado that hit my house in Acworth, Ga. I had no warning until it went black in the house. I made it to the basement front wall but the brick came in on top of me and I was knocked out. They also sound like a large jet engine. Watch out for quick changes in temperatures in the Spring and Fall in the South!
I think a tornado is coming right now in Texas so I’m really scared
tornadoes are scary but if you know what to do you will be safe, you may lose everything but you will be alive.
Well I say when a tornado is coming it will sound like a crashing sound I know this because I heard a tornado a week ago
Yes, it is: “ice could be a precursor to a tornado.”

Im really parinoid about the weather, but is a 5% chance of a tornado high, in weather standerts, not like torcons where 5 means 50%.
When you think a tornado is coming look outside and grab a raidio look at the news or ask a friend
I think this is awesome I am really scared of tornadoes, this really helped me know how to prepare for them
Fright train… good one
Thank you. I like this. I have a fear of tornadoes so this will do good.
I live in tornado country they are really prepared for this the last one i saw was an EF5
That’s not a answer to her question.
Well umm.. I dislike yalls thinking . I think when a tornado I’d coming it sounds like a roaring train so get right .
Well tornados can be some very dangerous frightful things to be true.. A tornado is pretty similar to a funnel cloud. A tornados way of forming is when a lot of cold and warm air chase each other. As I have to say so myself tornados are a scary thing.
you rock you help me and my freinds about tornados
A tornado is about to hit right know it is
