Tornadoes


So last night the St. Louis area was hit by 3 tornadoes, almost 4. Why almost 4 you ask? Well cause that damn wall cloud hanging off my tailgate damn near touched the ground. I ain't never pushed my old ford ranger as hard as I did last night, as Charlie Daniels said "Mario Andretti would've sure been proud
Of the way I was movin' when I passed that crowd". I hope all of our St. Louis members here are okay. Was anyone here in the path of one of the tornadoes?

I'm in the Metro East (Fairview Heights/Swansea) and we got winds, hail, and very heavy rain but no tornadoes. My mom is in the Maryland Heights area and they were a lot closer to the action but were not hit. I know a few people that had car damage from tree branches but it doesn't sound like there were any serious injuries in the St Louis area (Thankfully!!).

Wow a total of 9 tornadoes hit the area that night. We were really lucky no one was killed.
