    Okay here in Adams County, IN. The tornado that devastated Van Wert, OH got started about 6 miles east of my place. One of my co-workers in radiology had her barn destroyed, and lot of other buildings. The windows on her house shattered, but the house is intact. Everyone okay. Several of the Amish families in our area took pretty violent blows to their homes and buildings, but they were already working on putting everything back together today. One mobile home was destroyed, but the occupant was okay. 2 deaths in Van Wert county, and two in Putnam county, one in Seneca county. Yesterday was probably one of the worse days I have ever seen for weather. My husband has been through both the Palm Sunday tornado of 1965, and the Super Outbreak in 74. Scary stuff. Thanks for checking in on us. :kiss

    I have family in Alabama and TEnnessee. My Daughter, also a RN, lives in TN. Her husband and two sons (ages 4 and 7) were on a Cub Scout camping trip about 5 miles from where one of the worst tornadoes hit. The camp director woke them all up and crammed everyone into his house until the storm passed. My mother lives in Alabama and is fine. Tough to be a military wife (me) and to be living in CA when disaster strikes around my family.

    High winds in south western PA with 1 death and some damage. The storm was over quickley but the wind and horizontal rain was frightening. My daughter drove right into it driviing back to college. She made it ok thank God.

    Sorry to be ignorant CEN 35 what do you mean by F3 and F4's - is this there force measurement - we dont get them here - well at least not where we live.

    Glad to hear so many are okay. Tornadoes are so scary -- you know that they are there, but never know where they will touch down! You just have to hide and hope until it's gone. I haven't heard if most of the missing (quite a few, per the news reports earlier today) have been accounted for. Hopefully, they were just hiding from the storms and lost communication.
