netringer: Obscene_CNN: Look at the size of that tornado!!!http://www.liveleak.com/view?i=1c4_1369088124The amazing thing to me is those helicopters are flying maybe 10 miles away under the storm shelf.I won't fly within 20nm of a thunderstorm!
mikaloyd: Get your ass somewhere safe and stay there young lady. I dont trust these damned tornadoes and dont want you playing fast and loose cuz you think you are tornado proof.
Anderson's Pooper: I need a break.
Random Name Generator: What is it about Tulsa that tornadoes avoid?
Flying Lasagna Monster: Seriously, every woman they interview from Oklahoma is obese.
Enormous-Schwanstucker: My daughter graduates 4th grade in less than 3 weeks and you better believe my wife and I will be there to celebrate.
ontariolightning: Be thankful that tor wasnt near the nuclear plant otherwise this would be like Fukushima
Cytokine Storm: ArkAngel: If tornadoes in Kansas bring you to Oz, where do tornadoes in Oklahoma bring you?Arkansas/sometimes Missouri
ecmoRandomNumbers: Shadow Blasko: ecmoRandomNumbers: Some guy on CNN is thanking the Lord for saving them from the tornado. The one He sent. And flattened an elementary school with.Christ.I flamed Danica Patrick on her twitter when she was talking about praying for the safety of the people in Moore."the disaster already happened. stop praying and open your purse and call the red cross. praying didn't work, time for actual action"Her fans are going to flip out on you.
Torgo_of_Manos: Anthracite: Torgo_of_Manos: Donate to the Redcross if you canDO NOT DONATE TO THE RED CROSS....Havent you heard enough of the crap they DONT DO???Thanks O'Reilly...Just donate some cash to whomever you prefer.
ArkAngel: If tornadoes in Kansas bring you to Oz, where do tornadoes in Oklahoma bring you?
fjnorton: Wow took me a while to put together the bowling alley.
Great Porn Dragon: Shadow Blasko: Great Porn Dragon: Fark It: Uchiha_Cycliste: bkosh84: Shadow Blasko: sethstorm: Tornadoes: None in my neck of the woods, since they all seem to go to the east or south.Please tell me where in SW Ohio you are where you have not had a tornado within 10 miles?Wasn't there a tornado in Xenia or whatever back in the 1920's or 1930's that was the deadliest in history,?I thought it was called the tri-state tornado or something.That was almost certainly not one tornado, but rather a big supercell that spawned multiple tornadoes along one path....actually, as scary as it may seem, there IS a consensus building among meteorologists that this was in fact genuinely an incredibly long-tracked tornado and not a tornado family (for some time, it WAS thought the "Tri-State Tornado" was in fact a tornado family from a cycling supercell, but in the past few years folks have gone back over the data and determined that it really was pretty much the Tornado That Would Not Die after all).So... This really isn't the conversation I wanted to be having .. again.. tonight .. How bout you?Well, hoping by the time the weather gets to the Ohio Valley that the storm gods have tired of whirlydoom, other than that...dealing with frickin' allergies (have not gotten good sleep thanks to, well, the trees essentially having a Tree Orgy and me being rather allergic to tree pollen of just about everything that grows here...remind me WHY I live in the Ohio Valley again? :D)And yeah, was rather hoping we'd not be having a thread on the Midwest getting rodgered by the sky yet again...:P
Man On Pink Corner: Uchiha_Cycliste: I can imagine a day when the sky is filled with little solar powered weather drones at various altitudes all over the world and that data is fed into massive computers worldwide resulting in one solid earth weather map. The earth is a closed system. In theory if one were able to measure and correlate all of the forces at work below the edge of space and above the earth, they would have some wicked predicting power. Right?Chaos theory. How does it work?
Random Name Generator: Shadow Blasko: bkosh84: Shadow Blasko: sethstorm: Tornadoes: None in my neck of the woods, since they all seem to go to the east or south.Please tell me where in SW Ohio you are where you have not had a tornado within 10 miles?Wasn't there a tornado in Xenia or whatever back in the 1920's or 1930's that was the deadliest in history,?April 3rd, 1974. And another since, but not as bad as the 74 F5.It was part of the deadliest outbreak in history coontil two years ago)Yeah, old enough to remember the 2000 Xenia F4 tornado. Same path too.
Theory Of Null: Kotecks
The Incredible Sexual Egg: SuperNinjaToad: One Bad Apple: zvoidx: [i.imgur.com image 320x240]MOVE TO WHERE THE FOOD IS THERE'S NO TORNADOES!/just sayin'//stay safe[www.physicalgeography.net image 580x400]It is just a question of which natural disaster do you want to endueCan some farker overlay maps of tornadoes, hurricanes, earthquake, volcano etc and tell me where the safest city to live in to avoid natural disasters already?I don't have the map you requested, but Hawaii is actually the safest state when it comes to natural disasters
Taylor Mental: I see the Fark Modmins waited 3 hours to greenlight a breaking news thread about sh*t that could kill you.
Lt. Cheese Weasel: Alot of Farkers are shameful.
Flying Lasagna Monster: [i.dailymail.co.uk image 850x645]It's like one of those zombie apocalypse movies.
Tom_Slick: exvaxman: One of the reasons I bought my house was due to it being built with a fallout shelter. Built in 1958. The house inspector who went through was amazed with the steel beams holding up the concrete that was the base for the garage. I figured that anyone building a house like that, there would be less issues over the years with construction quality.The tornado room was a deciding factor in my home purchase, sure it has vinyl floors and Formica counters but it is has a tornado room./Please tell me you have a Fallout Shelter sign.
skozlaw: Iowan73: Just saw a guy being interviewed live on CNN who was wearing a tank top with "She Wants the D" written on it. If you wear something like that, you are almost certain to end up on world-wide live television.After a tornado.
LessO2: Wheeling out the big screen TV, really?
DON.MAC: Uchiha_Cycliste: Okay. So if I understand correctly, debris can get sucked way up if the drafts are right but primarily its just fierce spinning winds. In other words cartoons and media have taken some creative liberties with what the middle of a tornado does. Thanks!Tornados do suck. The wall clouds where they form are a huge low pressure system and that cases an updraft that tends to go from about 3,000 feet up to about 30,000. Hail bounces around in that from the updraft so the vertical winds happen to be high enough to counter gravity for things like grape fruit sized chunks of ice. As those wall clouds get close to the ground, you can get the characteristic funnel and once that forms, the forces in it help reinforce the vertical air flow as cyclone helps drive air away from the low pressure point at the center. The NWS skywarn web site has lots of useful on how they work.
Tom_Slick: I live on Lake Lanier now in a town whose name I hate to mention aloud.
TommyDeuce: Al Roeker on the scene in Moore
Ravage: Is it to early to talk about tornado control?
The Downfall: ontariolightning: Be thankful that tor wasnt near the nuclear plant otherwise this would be like Fukushima[i17.photobucket.com image 249x388]TBS did it.
Torgo_of_Manos: derpy: Anthracite: Torgo_of_Manos: Donate to the Redcross if you canDO NOT DONATE TO THE RED CROSS....Havent you heard enough of the crap they DONT DO???Your money would be better spent by renting an airplane and dropping dollar bills in the general area.What an appropriate user name
Di Atribe: mikaloyd: Di Atribe: Random Name Generator: [i.imgur.com image 474x320]As I was SAYING in the other thread, MODERATOR, that one is headed towards Granbury, which was devastated during last week's storms. There's also a tornado warning for Montague County, which also had a tornado touch down last week (EF2). Are we working on some tornado ruts out here or what?So its your fault?Hm, it may be. I think I've had my lifetime limit of tornadic experiences so I've developed a weather bubble that deflects all the worst stuff.In other news, not sure if I should stick with national coverage to keep up with Moore or stay local in case we get a warning. Hm..... I know the answer sounds obvious, but....
