Last night wasn't pretty and we got lucky or blessed, which ever way you call it. We had a several state wide
storm cell that was producing damage and tornadoes across many states. The same is predicted today.
There are many sources to read on the net. The news I am getting so far is one killed, many injured in Clinton, Arkansas. Super cells are never funny, they can drop a tornado in a second and retrieve it as quickly or it can stay on the ground for miles(as it did in our area two years ago). Several places in Arkansas and Missouri had tornadoes and it was not limited to those states. These super cells affected five states last night and maybe more.
This was the big weekend for Pioneer Day. Last night was a rodeo. Hubby, our county's emergency management coordinator, cancelled the rodeo, opened shelters in the courthouse and the school for the people to use. I hope they were grateful.
We did not get the tornadoes, Thank God, but we had a constant lightening show and a loud rumble that was continuous. It was quite impressive. I went to bed.
Since this covered many states and the news is still breaking, I do not know if you all are safe. I would love to know how every one fared during this super cell storm.
