Tuscaloosa Tornado

Hey Guys,

If you've been paying attention to the news over the past week, you know about the major tornado that tore through Tuscaloosa. You never understand how devastating these things can be until you experience one, but hell, these videos give you a pretty damn good idea.

I for one had the chills:






Honestly, having experienced two earthquakes in the past year, I still have no idea how I would react to something of this magnitude.

Our prayers to those affected.

Mike.

  1. Im one of those people that had a tornado go right over my house as a small child (or so the parents told me, I was in the tub). I know how I reacted. I collapsed in terror-induced exhaustion.

  23. I've always lived in tornado alley. I remember when I was camping in a tent when I was 10 and a tornado was within eyesight. Understandably, I wont go camping much any more.
