Tornado in my backyard!!



I was sitting with Luca and Tina eating dinner when all of the sudden the lights started flickering and I look up through my kitchen window to find shingles and garden stuff flying in circles. I quickly bring the family to the basement to wait out the tornado. I later go for a walk and find that a couple of houses near me had their roofs blown off and fences were throw 1 block away. I'll post pics soon. Hope everyone here is ok

That is crazy!!! Good to know you guys are alright. I had a massive lighting bolt strike literally 30ft in front of me and take out one of those street lamps, sending sparks up in the air. That was a hell of a storm.
