Yup....We got hit with a tornado. Just about 4-5 blocks from my house. You could here it and feel it from here badly. The tornado went down a street and ripped right over a Whataburger. It was cause by one of Dolly's arms of storms. It was pretty weird watching the local news as I saw almost 10 other funnels start to form around the area but did not touch down or even get half way. It was still pretty wild though.

Taco is great to read that you are ok
Earthquakes?????I dont know guys.I have been in Tornados and Hurricanes here in North Alabama.Atleast with them I can predict somewhat when they will "hit".But an earthquake,I have always wondered what it would be like,no warning just all of a sudden everything starts to shake.I guess it is all from the prespective of where you have lived.

I've never been in a tornado but when I was in the 8th grade, a small one was forming over a golf course across the street from my school. It never touched down but it was pretty scary. Glad everything is safe...well almost everything.
