A tornado was issues a while back. I was keeping up with the radar by Facebook since you lose satellite TV when its cloudy!
It was both worrisome and exciting to look up and see the tight spinning circle overhead and the clouds dip and go up and dip again as it passed over. it was an obvious tornado, but never did make it all the way to the ground.
The warning in now 10 miles N.E. of here.
Video on phone didn't work! I was trying to get it to video this event.
I thought you were supposed to hide when you see one of those.
You are! It was in the sky, guess the excitement took over. It was captured in the moment. Not the wisest choice I know, but...when the rain did start, I went back inside. The funnel has passed over by then though.
Glad to hear it passed you by, but I'm sure it was an amazing sight.
It was! I wish I had gotten it on video. Would have YouTubed it for sure. I have seen videos on TV and DVD's, but not this vivid!
I mean, it was just right there above me as I was looking up at it. The tight circle spiraling with the clouds around it; some going up and some shooting down while spinning.
Made me think of an "eye-of-a-storm" image.
Really incredible!! I'm glad you got to see it... glad you are okay!
I definitely could have used a video phone or camera today. This type of video could have gone viral on Youtube and the local news. And of course I would have written a hub if I had the images and/or video.
Waterspouts are really cool to watch as they shimmer with water rather than dust and debris. I've witnessed 3 at one time during a thunderstorm off Florida's east coast. They last a long time too. I've only witnessed 1 tornado which actually touched down. That was enough!
How scary and exciting at the same time! I'm glad it passed over you and you and yours are all in one piece still. Now you have something to tell your grandchildren. :-)
Just found this local TV report that a tornado did cause minor damage near where I live. No reports of any injuries.
I knew what I saw was a tornado forming above me.

Was headed into Texarkana from the south with huge thunderstorms coming in yesterday. As I was listening to reports on the radio of rotation in the clouds, I snapped a pic of it with my phone. My daughter was under this same storm. Tons of hail golfball sized showered her truck. My little 4 yr old...

What is your family's plan for what to do in the event of a tornado?Living near Joplin, MO has taught me to prepare better and I am curious as to what others have for a plan for the event of a tornado hitting their home.
