• Kentucky Tornado

    From HusTler@VERT/PHARCYDE to All on Sun Dec 12 07:11:46 2021
    Anyone see the news clips on the tornado in Kentucky? I can't imagine what that must be like. A couple of Synchronet Sysops are in Kentucky. Hope all is well.

    My area was mostly spared. Some wind damage and trees down. Thank you for asking.

    Southwest of here is another story. ;( I don't think we've seen damage
    like this since 1974.

    What devastation and destruction. People were in the homes and the tornada just swept away their homes while still in them. I can't get my head around that. And right before Christmas too. Let's you know just how small we all really are.

    Yes, it really caught a lot of folks off guard. I was watching an
    interview last night. I think it was filmed around Dawson Springs. A guy
    was talking about how he and a friend (or brother) only had a few seconds
    to take cover. He managed to get halfway under something heavy before it
    hit, while the other guy only had time to drop flat to the floor. The
    building they were in was mostly leveled, but they both somehow made it.

    The guy was interviewed late the next day. You could tell he was still
    shocked by what had happened around him.

    Sirens were going off here, and I heard that they were going off in
    Mayfield. I am not sure about some of the towns in between. It hit
    Mayfield late in the evening, but some of the other towns along the path
    were hit overnight. The Bowling Green tornado was also overnight. It did catch a lot of folks asleep. If you were not near a siren, and with the
    cell coverage going down in many areas, some folks in the towns it hit
    later probably didn't have much warning.

    We have tornados, usually each year, and some even at this time of year.
    But the two biggest ones we had this time were on the ground for a while,
    and have left more death in their wake than we've seen before in our state.

    I am not sure if it was on FIDO or another network, but there used to be a
    BBS that ran out of Mayfield on one of the networks.

    there was also that amazon in illinois that had a tornado https://abcnews.go.com/Business/dead-amazon-facility-tornado-pummels-illinois/story?id=81721932

    amazon doesnt have tornado shelters. they just have big warehouses.
    they tell employees to gather in the middle. that's the most stupid thing to do.

    they would be better off running outside and avoiding the tornado.

    It is. They tell you if you are in a building specifically not to gather
    in any wide open spaces inside. Middle is usually good, but not if you are
    in a building that is mostly one wide-open room. Better to find a restroom
    or a smaller office, but those are probably all on outside walls.

    they would be better off running outside and avoiding the tornado.

    Quite possibly so.

    We've been hearing that there is a likelihood of severe weather for
    Minnesota and maybe Wisconsin tonight. Stay safe.

    amazon has wide open warehouses and small bathrooms. you cant fit 150 people in the bathrooms. osha is up their ass now. hopefully they will have them build tornado shelters.

    like 10 years ago at my old job there was a twister and I refused to stay in the building past my shift. I'd rather risk it than stay late.

    it was as strange twister that zips up the same path every 20 or so years.

    We've been hearing that there is a likelihood of severe weather for Minnesota and maybe Wisconsin tonight. Stay safe.

    just high winds. nothing new. it's so hot we have all the windows open with fans in them. not even helping.
