Tornados hit my area




We are save and sound but at lest 200 people were injured today when a tornado touched down in Suffolk Va. One small town was all but destroyed near there, and reports are still coming in. I was at work this afternoon when the storm came in, and got a frantic phone call from my daughter letting me know we were under a tornado warning. A warning as you know means a tornado has been spotted. She was frightened and I tried to comfort her. Thankfully her boyfriend stayed home from work to be with her and my grandson. I still had about two hours of work before my shift was over, so I snuck into the employee lounge a couple of times to watch the TV.
Thankfully the storms stayed south of us hitting Suffolk, but I really felt sorry for the people there. This is the first time that I can remember that a tornado has come this close to home.
Photos are still coming in.

I am very glad that you are okay! When I lived in Indiana we had lots of tornado watches and I don't think I ever got use to them!

Oh, my gosh,

I am so glad you are safe and sound. That was too close. I have lived in ND all my life and have never seen a tornado - and may I never see one.
