Winds woke me up at some point last night and we weren't even in the main path
Feels like northern Illinois gets fucked at least once a year.
That is not good
Northwestern may have to unpause their facility upgrades after today
God must be really mad at Pat
Is this the flood thread too? The photos from Vermont are terrible
Since the start of our new fiscal year July 1, the Red Cross has already initiated 15 new Disaster Relief Operations including the massive flooding in Vermont.
Overnight, nearly 240 people were in 21 congregate shelters in Vermont, including more than 60 people in three Red Cross and partner shelters in Barre, Rutland, and Hartford.
Additional shelters are available throughout the Northeast, including New York and Pennsylvania.
In addition to sheltering, more than 170 Red Cross disaster responders are helping assess the damage and working with officials to determine what other support is needed. Teams are also providing emergency relief supplies and nourishing meals – up to 5,000 meals per day are planned – for the community.
Teams of Red Cross responders are hard at work, supporting more than 20 active disaster relief operations nationwide as many regions experience torrential rains, unrelenting heat, widespread wildfires, and other disasters. The climate crisis is driving extreme weather conditions across the country, and as these extreme weather disasters increase, more people need help from the Red Cross.
In addition, there is an increased typhoon risk in the Pacific, where 137 Red Crossers continue to respond to Typhoon Mawar on Guam, including caring and doing shelter resident transition casework for some 265 survivors and disbursing nearly $1M in financial assistance to over 1,000 devasted households.
And, we are still in Mississippi and Arkansas providing non-congregate shelter, feeding, and shelter resident transition casework for more than 400 tornado survivors.

Hope my house is there when we go home
I’m rooting for some runaway barges instead of tornados.
Looks like the city is safe. Western & NW burbs look rough
This isn’t good
Funnel cloud over Oak Park. I’m actually considering going to the basement.
shit just went over my my moms childhood neighborhood
HIT THE BALL OR WE'RE PLAYING THROUGH. JEEZUS.
Not going to do shit here
Real nice rain though
Been without power for 4 plus hours now. Tons of downed trees in the neighborhood. Over 165K in the city without power. The wind in that sucker was crazy, news said 80 mph. Look at all the damn dirt blown in before the rain shows up. When it hit you could hear tree after tree getting blown over, a lot of new skylights were installed this afternoon.
Looks like it could be a fun few hours in Nashville.
Those trees are floppers
No place in this sport
Just had a cool system roll through
Sutton, NE is literally a magnet for tornadoes.
Ayyyyye. The only place I've almost died in a tornado.
Popped my tornado cherry with a F4 at the age of 5
Can still picture it. Dad was a hired hand on farm and came flying home. The German Shepard was already waiting at the top of the celler door. Remember going into town that night, power lines down everywhere. Just scared as shit. The next day was just a nonstop sound of chainsaws.
lomcevak with the super soaker going down
It's like May up here
Push some of that up to SE ND when you're done. We need rain
Holy cow! That’s hard to read. The feeling of helplessness is something you never forget. In the June 1988 outbreak in Western Nebraska we were driving back to Lincoln when we were chased for a bit by one. West of Bridgeport on a 2 lane highway I noticed 4 or 5 swirls of soil spiraling upward in a plowed field adjacent to us. It formed right there as I watched and it was suddenly right behind us. There was nowhere to go for shelter. So I chose to gun it and try to stay ahead of it. You’re not supposed to do that, but there was no other option. In my mirrors all I could see was yellow-brown dirt and transformers exploding. The highway eventually made a curve to the southeast and the tornado continued to the East. I have no idea how strong it was. No rain. No hail. I doubt it was very big, but it could still have been strong. On the way to Ogallala I saw another one to the South heading NE, but it didn’t impact us. At North Platte I said “We’re getting a room and staying here”. While there we ran into friends who saw one near Sidney. Lots of hail and rain. As I type this I can clearly see it all and wonder at my stupidity and our luck.
At least the 3rd state I've seen with a tornado warning today
