  • We had one in Vancouver, WA back in 4/5/72, it was an F3. Killed 6 people took out a bowling alley, grocery store, and grade school. i was just in grade school myself at the time, but it was a really big deal around here, because we usually don't get that kind of weather around here. very scary. my heart goes out to everyone that is being/been affected by all the tornados right now. seems like alot more than normal are going on.

  • We had one go over our house a few years back. Thankfully it did not touch down in our neighborhood, but the winds sure made a mess of things.

  • Yes. It was frightening. It mangled our almost brand new swing-set our grandparents had recently given to us. But we all survived huddled together at the bottom of a stairwell. There were 8 of us, parents, 5 siblings, and me.

  • Yeah we were in one in huntsville in the 90s. Totally scary. We were also traveling one time through bama and watched a tornado touch down behind us on the highway. I hate tornados
