    Here's the one that touched down a half mile from my childhood home (still my mom's house) that was headed toward the hospital in Excelsior Springs last night. Luckily touched down through a lot of farm land.

    It’s calmed down for now

    We recently bought a new house but haven’t closed yet. It had some hail damage and the sellers just finished replacing the roof yesterday. Hopefully it got some more bc I don’t like the guy we are buying it from

    Just watching videos it seems the really severe winds extend pretty significantly out beyond the visible wedge where all the debris is accumulating... I.e., all the stuff accumulates in the the middle, but relatively clear air is moving at a high rate for an extensive area around to force it in there —

    Is there a rule of thumb for how far out the tornado-speed winds extend from the debris cone? Like an EF4 can have 100 MPH winds out 5x (???) the width of the cone? Just curious how close these crazy storm chasers feel they can get before they’re in grave danger

    The location of that levee breach is in farmland and about 500 people had to be evacuated. In terms of a breach it couldn’t have happened in a better spot.

    The one person warning is still more impressive to me. I've seen warnings with zero people before in the Everglades.

    Dardanelle, home of The Sand Lizards, is across the river from Russellville, home of the Cyclones. 85 miles southeast of Fort Smith.
    Russelville is also the home of Arkansas Tech University's Wonder boys

    Had a nice supercell on Sunday ride along the eastern slopes of the Black Hills. Dropped some tennis balls and busted out windshields at Custer State Park

    From a buddy of mine about 30 minutes from Pine Bluff and in farming country. We moved most of the stuff out of his dad's place 2 weeks ago at one point it looked like the river was going to go over the roof. I suppose it still could but not likely.

    Viewing from the Northwest and farther away, the NW facing wall of the storm near Limon appeared to have a well defined fish scale pattern, which was lit up by the setting sun. I was driving on an interstate so no pic. God hates Limon, storms constantly move that way.
