I like "his-a-canes" too, Tornados are a different animal even with the new weather radars their unpredicable as anything. We've been through 5 in Tuscaloosa, all have gone south of us.

Do's on tornados.

1.) Do CHASE a tornado.
2.) Do stand right where the window is holding your new Samsung JV-13362C4A $999 dollar video camera then go running for cover... Run outside and yell at the tornado.
3.) If running to a shelter, make your girl go outside first (hey, if she get's sucked up, no more temper tantrums eh? You're a free bird now )
And last but not least...
4.) Stand near power lines, more safety under them.

LaPlata, MD is hurting bad. Damn thing plowed right into the small town and quick. All the doppler equipment and no one warned quickly enough.? We arent use to this stuff. This is the first F-5 here that I know of..? Strange weather patterns this year for sure. Mybe some of you tornado belt folks could add a couple of tips. Dont worry, you can twist things out of context if you want
Wasn't that crazy Conan? We really lucked out not getting any major damage our way, it is so hugely rare to have an F5 around here too! Glad I have a basement, feel sorry for those in the highrises, I could see dark black clouds looming all around one that I can see from my window here on Sunday, what are they supposed to do, and how many actually would do it in time?

Has a tornado ever hit a highrise before anywhere? I can't recall ever hearing of that happening. Anyone? Just curious.

That would not be uncommon actions for someone living in a underground structure...wouldn't know what to do mybe.. Mixing humor with real life situations helps me deal with it a little better..thanks.

Lady Z, The only thing I could think of is blowing debris into the windows. Not many people around here are ready to screw plywood to their windows like in Florida. The structures are all re-inforced concrete so it is unlikely that any swaying would happen and the winds would flow around them..?(sounds good anyway)

John, I hope we have some refreshments down there.. [img]smile.gif[/img]

Hey You're not alone dude! I LOVE hurricaines! It's really cool when the EYE passes over you, you can just sit and everything is so calm while all around you the clouds are swirling like mad!

I was raised to open them to allow air flow through the house, to keep a vacuum from being created inside which will cause the windows to implode!
(Of course you stay away from windows to keep from getting hit by debris that could fly in)

The last tornado that went through here proved that right when KHaN's aunt and uncle were trapped in the city when the tornado was blowing through and they got home to a house full of glass that had no windows left!

Just so you know I am no tornado dummy...I grew up in southwest Ohio and we experienced them every year (anyone remember Xenia?)

Since I've been in Texas, I see Tornado Don't's that say to keep the windows shut and I want to know when the rules changed and most of all WHY?!

Mybe it's an icecream bar or something called tornado..?

Moni, Opening windows allows damaging winds to enter the structure. Leave the windows alone; go to a safe place. Violent winds over 150 mph and debris slamming into buildings cause most structural damage. Wind pressure is what damages a house-not air pressure. The reasons why walls and roofs go but the coffee maker on the kitchen table remains is that large objects have more force placed on them than small objects. If roofs and walls are not properly secured, they can easily become airborne. Hope this helps.
