    Rough evening and night yesterday and now tornadoes warnings are rapidly popping up again all over southern Arkansas.
    Temp reached upper 80's here today and it is extremely sticky outside. Weathermen are saying the atmosphere is more conducive for tornadoes this evening than yesterday.

    I've only seen one tornado in my life, and that was when I was 10 years old (in TX!)

      I have seen a few, but not suffered the damage like so many. I hope Donotfear is watching tonight also because these storms are also popping up in her area.

      When you live in Tornado Alley long enough you begin to recognize the air symptoms for Tornadic activity.

    OK...lightning has begun and storm...time to go until then. Also...Satellite is gone due to storm so I can't see the weather for now. Time to turn radio on.

      I am back online. You are right. It has been a bad weekend for us Arkansans. Have been through 3 Tornado warnings already tonight. Rough storms.
      Now there is another one coming up from Prescott.
      Going to be a long night tonight.

      The worst part is...when storms get close...I lose TV reception! Satellite is Useless in bad weather. Analog TV being done away with was the Worst Idea there was. At least with Analog I could use the TV Antennae to watch for severe weather when the Satellite was blocked due to weather.
      Killing analog TV puts people in danger when weather gets severe!!!

    How do you handle these things? I think I would be scared living in a surge zone for tornadoes!

    Do you guys have shelters?

    1. Michael Willis profile image77
      Michael Willisposted 8 years agoin reply to this

      There are a lot of people who do or at least have basements in homes.
      There are a lot of places that one can go to for shelter or neighbors that will call others to come over (those in mobile homes especially) for shelter.

      I do have a plan if I see a Tornado will be right over me. My area has always been "Lucky", but...I know that is not a given. I have my flashlight handy, mattress ready to use for cover and when Satellite TV goes out...I make phone calls to find out info on weather from friends or family members.

      Other than that...hope for the best result.

      This is kind of late in the year for this type of severe weather like we are having now for 2 days straight. This is more like a March pattern or late December though January.

        Dang.....The weatherman is now saying a New Warning in the county just southwest of me headed here again!!!
        The pattern now tonight is the storms that follow interstate 30 from southwest to northeast.  Those are the ones which normally cause the most damage. Those concern me. And those are what I am seeing.

        are you serious?  Maybe it depends on where you are....in Wisconsin we get tornadoes between April and October with most in the summer months.

          We actually get less activity in the summer months. And you being north, I would suppose the cold front you get increase your chances for tornadoes. We get extremely hot and humid here during the summer months with no cold fronts coming down.

    Geeez, stay safe Michael!
    I grew up in Tennessee and recall the eerie days of Tornadoes. sad Take care and check back in when you can!

    OUCH! Bad news! I hope it gets tired and goes home! smile

      lol, guess it did. It has passed again!  I guess one kind of gets use to the tornado season when you grow up with it.  Normally in May we can relax, but it may be June this year. June through first of December seems to be the safest time here.
      Thanks Money Glitch...I am sure you know about tornadoes being from Tennessee.
      Hey Earnest....do you guys not have tornadoes there?

        Good news Michael, my heart was in my throat there for a bit! Geez, we get to care about each others safety here too don't we? smile
        We do get small ones in the centre, but who cares?
        No substantive buildings and nobody there but the native people who choose to be there and who know all about the tornadoes and exploit them for their own means!
        We get nasty cyclones up north, but again, thinly inhabited, and yes hairy as hell in the cyclone season with a natural tide rise of 28ft with dead flat land! Not a good look in a cyclone! smile

        Thank you for the update.
        I emailed her yesterday morning and still no reply.

        Her computer is probably just shut down. Thank goodness.

    Well, looks like the round of storms is over for me. They all went over and headed up to Michael's!! We just had the last one. We are used to this here. We don't have basements. The land is too unstable, humid temps. So when we get a warning, we head to the interior room and close the doors. I know there has not been much success with basements in this area. Lot's of storm shelters though. WE don't have one. Guess my horse gotta good drenching....unless he made it into his stall before the calves did. Knowing him, he ran them out....

    Rain over!

      It is finally calming down here now. Whew...I do feel lucky at times. Most tornadoes where I live...usually go a few miles south or north.

    I used to live in Oklahoma and saw quite a few.  We had one pass over our house once and that was pretty scary.  My mom made us go into the basement, but the woman was so scared by a huge spider she refused to stay down there and took her chances.  He he he.  Anyway, hope everyone's safe and stays that way.

      LOL  I would take a spider over a tornado any day!!! There was a death yesterday and over 20 injured. No info on tonight's events yet. And Oklahoma normally gets more tornadoes than we do here in Arkansas.
