I heard a storm was coming in on Facebook and everyone was complaining about it because we were having such a nice morning.
When it started raining out I really needed some cool rain so I stood out there for a while. Around 30 minutes later I went to make dinner and all the sudden the sirens go off, the sky turns black, and the clouds were whirling around. We ran downstairs and turned on the TV in the basement and the news reporters was saying winds up to 80mph, and swirling clouds. I was terrified.
Thank the Lord we made it safe. Everyone I know is safe. A lot of downed trees though, and plenty of storms will be here all through the night.

@SweetRose2011: There was a tornado nearby today. Unfortunately, it hit in one of the poorest parts of our city. I feel so bad for everyone effected. 🙁
Glad you are safe!

I’m glad you’re ok. Tornadoes are one of my biggest fears. It seems like there have been WAY too many this spring so far. :/
We have some storms heading our way tonight. I’ll probably be up all night checking the weather reports. I hope everyone else on here is ok after these storms passed through.

There was a tornado? I was at a movie this evening and had no idea! Where in Illinois are you?

@SweetRose2011:You must live pretty close to my hometown area in IL (I’m in WI now) – it was on my fb too that tornadoes were in the area. Scary stuff!

@kingytobe: I’m around two hours outside of Chicago to the SW I believe. They said the storms came from Iowa.

Not much has passed through the city (yet) but my BFF up in Rockford posted on FB that she pulled everyone down to the basement for only the second time ever. Sounds like it was pretty bad when the storms were coming through.

I can’t even imagine going through a tornado warning, so scary. But I have lived through my share of earthquakes!!

Please keep my family and friends in your thoughts and prayers. Joplin, about 30 minutes from my hometown, has been dealt almost total devastation. So many of my friends and family have been affected by this.

I hope everyone is alright. I’m still anxious after our tornados last month and we didn’t even have one right in our area.

Oh okay, I’m about 30 min SW of the city so that makes sense, it was no where near me! I’m glad you’re safe!
