I saw my first tornado today
I may have seen it a bit closer, as our area was the first one warned, and the rotation was supposedly coming our way & 7 miles away...so we were in the basement. I figured with the noise of constant thunder & heavy rain, we were best off in the basement. My...it was so humid outside. It's better now.
It touched down south of here & was at one point a twin. No news yet of damaged property or deaths (unlike the bad larger one a few days ago). This one seemed smaller.
My pictures have trees in the way, but it was cool for all of us to see it, even from that distance.
There were some beautiful pictures that chasers took closer to it.
I thought our tornado season was kind of done, but it looks to only have possibly begun.
