Is that a normal occurance in Nashville? I'm not sure what you're talking about.

Tornado season for Middle TN. Last year it was a biblical flood that made Noah go 'Oh what the ****!', this year so far tornadoes.

Just keep alive guys. When you hear a train coming and you are no where near tracks, find a basement.

We were sent to the "shelter areas" (aka bathrooms) twice yesterday.
I'm embarrassed to say this, but my company bills itself as the global specialist in energy management. Yet, our network infrastructure does not have UPS backups (although we own one of the major names in UPS) and our lines in are not redundant. So we lost one phase of incoming power and that caused us to send app. 400 people home yesterday, and is keeping them from work today also.

Also, basements are a rarity here due to the entire mid-state area having rock so close to the surface...

That's unfortunate. I heard about Nashville's flood last year, but I wasn't aware that it was tornado related.

I hope everyone's safe!

It was a freak huge rain in a quick amount of time. Tornados are a very normal occurence (once a week). We generally don't get the large ones, but they are still destructive and deadly. For the most part, all the hills and such keep them brief, which is nice, but rain is always an issue this time of year..mainly 2-3 days of straight rain and no sun can cause floods.

I think I read 6 people have died (according to the Tennessean)

This is a sad story that I heard last night. Someone's house was just finished being refurbished from the floods & the house was hit by 3 trees supposedly one of the trees that hit the house was uprooted (I'm talking 5-6 feet in diameter)

That's just so ... I don't know, unfair is the only word I can think of that is fit to print, but it doesn't seem quite strong enough.

My daughter's house was damaged when a tree was uprooted in her back yard. Hit her roof and broke her bedroom window. Fortunately most of the roof damage was to the eaves and there doesn't appear to be any structural damage but there were a lot of shingles gone. It was a pretty big tree, too.

Took me an hour and 15 minutes to go 4 miles yesterday. The School for the Blind on Lebanon Pike and the condos across the street from it had a lot of tree damage--some uprooted, some just snapped in two. One had fallen over the road.

You guys aren't alone, well for the tornadoes so far yes but Milwaukee was hit with storms on Sunday. Tons of lightning, hail, heavy winds and the equivalent of 6 inches of rain in an hour for one of the storms. I had hail twice by me on Sunday, first hit at 11 AM, second at around 10 PM.

Tornado season is fast approaching here too.

Man I always hated storms and bad weather. I remember the tornado season of 1998. I was in 7th grade and it's the only time we actually ever had to execute a tornado drill and they actually sent us home early in anticipation of the tornado possibilities. Good call because this was soon to follow:

Forewarning for Friday. Today the midwest has tornado warnings, tomorrow we'll get the sloppy seconds. Weather channel says "Severe thunderstorms and a tornado outbreak likely" for our area.

"We're not even halfway through the month and we've racked up a combined 2,941 reports of damaging winds, large hail and tornadoes across the central and eastern states. This is 86% of April's entire month 10-year average (2000-2009) of 3,402 reports in the first 13 days!"

I was in my poli sci class when we got our second tornado warning of the morning (Murfreesboro. the first sirens woke my dog up). Stupidly or not, I decided to go ahead and walk to my next class. The sirens are RIDICULOUSLY loud, but I guess I knew that since I can hear them at my house three miles away. Probably should have stayed put, but I was in a bad mood so sitting in a crowded hallway having to hear all of the stupid conversations for who knows how long wasn't going to happen.

(as soon as I made it across campus to my next class I got an email on my phone telling me the class would be canceled... had to walk ALL the way back to where I started essentially haha)

Tornado sirens are howling in Murfreesboro again. Stay safe everyone. I'm going to post up in the interior hallway if I hear any unusual, loud noises.

North Alabama just got almost demolished today. I turned on the weather channel and they were following a tornado going over U of Alabama and it went straight towards Birmingham. One of the guys was in B'ham (he was up on the hill where that statue is if you know the city) and they caught the tornado on camera as it passed over, just north of downtown Birmingham. It was massive, I think they said a mile wide. It was surreal. They said catastrophic damage.


Every year they seem to get worse and more numerous.

I live in Birmingham. It was intense here today. Tornadoes were everywhere. Luckily, the big one that went through UA passed a few miles to the west of me.

Been following these pretty closely. The one in Alabama looked especially bad. Stay safe! Good luck against Vancouver!

Feeling pretty lucky right now, I live just down the street from the Taco Bell in M'Boro that had a piece of it's sign embedded into the side of the building, several large trees blocked the roads and left a section of town without power all day, some friends on the other side of Memorial had to stay in a hotel because they never did get their power back. But it could have been a lot worse like the big one that hit a couple of years ago.

Then seeing the footage out of Tuscaloosa... WOW! That is some terrible stuff and puts many things into perspective.
