According to the weather dork on channel 6 Columbus, get to a basement, bathroom or closet, stay away from the windows and if you live in a trailer, and being that you're a Cane fan I'm sure it's a distinct possibility, get the hell out of there!!
Hopefully all is well.
Our house got wasted in the '85 twister. It picked up the whole garage and "drove" it into the 3rd story of the house 2 doors down. Funny thing about that tornado was the weather man came on and said we were having a tornado watch. My brother told me I should not go out (Fri. night) because of it. My exact quote was " fuck that tornado, this isnt Kansas"
Needless to say, I take watches and warnings a little more serious, now.
I have been fortunate never to see one in action. There was a week during my undergrad days at Kent that the siren went off every night. One touched down just outside of town a block away from my girlfriend's parent's house. She was at home at the time and said it sounded like a train just outside their door.
My wife grew up in Huntington, WV (No jokes, guys) and when she first moved to MI she was going through tornado training at the local hospital where she worked as an RN. She had no idea what anyone was talking about when they said stay away from the windows. The hills where she grew up blocked the tornados. Of course, they just had flooding that would cut the town in sections.
Yeah, you can't underestimate those fuckers. When I was growing up ( in MI), we had one come through our city and really tear things up pretty bad. We saw it coming and hauled ass to the basement. Luckily, it didn't trash our house, but much of the neighborhood was hammered.
