Not the first time we've had horrible storms. The local Skywarn guys talk about a 1985 outbreak that killed 88 people.
The F5 that started around Newton Falls - if it had landed a few miles west, it would have hit Ravenna. If it had traveled a few miles north, it would have hit Warren. A few miles south, Youngstown. All three are larger population centers that would have likely resulted in a lot more deaths.
I think the death toll is over 200 now ...O bama is to come down to Bama today and see the wreck we have ....Sucks many of us are very blessed pray for the suffering ones who werent so lucky . There are many Org's popping up to help out we shall see its all over the place crazy now a days ... wonder if all this is via the earthquake a month or so ago. It moved the earths axis like what 8 feet (not talking about Japans shore line ) . either way its crazy right now .. Sooo Hide your kids hide your wife cause Mother Natures raping everybody out there ... sry sometimes you got to make a joke
A Recession is when you don't have a job, a Depression is when I don't have a job!
It's seven PM, hot, humid and pitch dark outside. Winds are picking up and I hear sirens in the background. And once again, once we get past this little disturbance, it's looking like another crappy weekend
