My First Tornado Scare!

I'm from NV originally, we don't have real weather in NV, it's hot or it's hot but really there aren't too many other natural "disasters" that happen around there. Now I live in WY which it never occurred to me there would be anything but snow and wind to worry about, nope. Little baby funnel clouds like to pop up

 What kinds of natural disasters do you have to worry about in your neck of the woods?

  • Tornadoes, flash flooding, straight line winds, and hail. We also get the 'side effects' (if you will) from hurricanes...we live in central Alabama. I've lived in Alabama my whole life, but I've never been near a tornado. We've had more damage to our property due to straight line winds. I've had my fair share of 'ducking' for cover, though.

  • tornadoes are the big one, but we also get flash floods, droughts, hail, high winds, blizzards, ice storms, scorching heat, wildfires and thanks to fraking, earthquakes. Oklahoma is one of the worst places to live in terms of weather/natural disasters haha.

  • I live in Oklahoma like okmanders and she hit the nail on the head! Lol it's like everyone else's bad weather collides right over us! We even had a little hurricane type thing back in 2007, instead of dissipating it intensified over Oklahoma. We have really messed up weather.

  • Pretty much the same as Wyoming here in Colorado, tornadoes and wildfires in the summer and occasional winter blizzards.
