Anyone here get affected by this? Sounds pretty bad. Need to contact my sister to see if she's ok.

I hate to even post this without knocking on wood the entire time...but this year's tornado season is open for businesses and not messing around.

I'm between Dallas and Ft. Worth, and usually we get a few watches, warnings, and tornado or two somewhere around here in April... We have had multiple of each category so far, and the kicker is that as bad as it's been here, it is NOTHING like the incredible destruction found in other states.

I feel like the old guy at the barber shop telling tornado stories, but it just seems to be getting worse lately. Maybe it's just the news coverage is better, maybe the amount of information gathered and relayed is greater, maybe I just forgot how bad other years were...but it seems like the tornados that used to hit here in North Texas/Oklahoma/Kansas are moving West and are increasing in frequency.

Hope everyone fares well, be careful out there.

I think it's a combo of better, faster news, and increased weather activity. Over the past few years it's just been getting more and more extreme. But at the same time, we are now getting instant news from everywhere, so it may just seem like there is more going on, when in reality, we are just now hearing of almost all of it.

None of us in the Bristol/Kingsport area were affected (that the ones I have talked to so far). The folks in this area do not see severe weather like this very often. I grew up around KCMO and it doesn't scare me like it dopes a lot of the people that have lived here their entire life.

I moved from Huntsville, AL a couple years ago. I haven't been able to reach anyone down there yet.
Sounds bad there and it didn't get the worst of it.
