Tornadoes in the South, y'allllllllllllllll

Recommended Posts

I don't know how many of y'all live in the south, but some serious storms ripped though here yesterday and have been doing so for the past week or two. Today it's nice... but the weather has been so fucked lately. luckily, where I stay at was spared and we only had a few uprooted trees from heavy winds, but those in Alabama weren't so lucky.

 

Typically you hear the tornado sirens about two or three times in the spring during a heavy storm, but lately it's been every day. The Mississippi is also flooding because of the massive amounts of rain lately. Anyone else been experiencing this shit?

PLEASANT GROVE, Ala. — The death toll in the South rose sharply Thursday morning to more than 200 after devastating storms, including as many as 100 different tornadoes, ripped through the region, leaving a trail of flattened homes and buildings in an area already battered by storms.

obviously nothing like what is happening in the deep south but even maryland had tornadoes yesterday

 

RIP victims.

 

 

...it still amuses me that people need to worship a God when we have nature. it's only too obvious what is really in charge of us and all the crap we've built.

we had one come near by here in Northern Louisiana. I was at work and they for the first time ever shut the rig down until the storm passed.

Shit is wild. So much rain has fallen. The river crested 10 days earlier than they predicted. They're shutting down all the casinos in Tunic MS (they're on a flood plain that has not flooded in over 100 years). I think I heard they were sand-bagging city hall in Memphis too.

 

I'm gonna snap some pictures of the river. It's so damn flooded

The people who have moved to Southern California from other states are smart.

 

Those who haven't aren't smart.

I don't live in the south, but we still get tornadoes here from time to time (Chicago). Shit is really not that serious, there's mad warnings before they come and you have adequate time to take cover if necessary.

 

Earthquakes on the other hand just randomly shake shit up and the only warning is "we're in for a big one one of these days". I'll take tornadoes over that any day.

Damn Brewster, that's some shit.

 

Normal level of the Mississippi is below that tree line about 15 - 20 feet.

That sucks, good luck to everyone and rip to those who died.

 

Natural disasters are fascinating and at the same time frightening. Here are a few guidelines I follow when looking for a home.

 

dont live near a river

acquire basement in tornada territories

live in single level or upper floor near active fault lines

near ocean be at least 50ft above sea level slightly inland

i've been through a couple tornadoes and you have maybe 10 minutes..maybe. if your power goes out though or you have dish you're up shits creek without a paddle, especially at night when many of them hit. we have a storm radio but it was broken some time ago..and unfortunately not everyone has a nice spot to take cover in, especially in trailers and whatnot.

 

the good thing about tornadoes is that most rarely hit towns and large cities, they usually take place out on the plains in farmland, if there was one of this magnitude to go through chicago you wouldn't be so non chalant about it to say the least haha. but i don't think any big ones have hit chicago in a long time, you guys are kind of off center in the tornado alley so im not sure how bad tornadoes get up there..
