The destruction of a tornado

Someone shared pictures of the devastation from yesterday...Looking at these, I wonder that more people did not die...This makes me wonder if it will be classified as an EF5. Video of it looks like a 4, but the devastation...wow...

2. I know...it picked the whole house up, moved it and exploded...

I hope nobody was in it at the time.

3. No other weather

scares me as much! Hurricanes can be planned for, tornadoes are practically instant.

5. Have a family member that was living and working in Joplin MO when the tornado hit in 2011

Apartment was 3 blocks out of the major destruction area and had some damage from debris and and part of the roof taken off.

Went to assist with relocating them a few days after and the level of devastation there was had to comprehend.
The power of a large tornado is truly frightening.

7. It's terrible. Been in a few myself, but only once this close.

Back in the late 90's early 2000's, my husband, Pop and myself were coming back from a funeral in Moulton, AL. There was a storm, a pretty bad one too, and we left to go home. Moulton to Hartselle is a pretty flat area with lots of open space. I was driving. Raining so hard you could barely see. Hail, lightening, green sky....We knew there was a tornado, just couldn't find the direction. No place to pull off unless we got out of the car into a ditch. All the sudden, it got quiet...my pop yelled at me to pull over, pull over now! Up ahead of us, about a quarter of a mile, I saw a pulsating green wall. It moved across the road..had debris in it. Black as night and green. It was like it was in slow motion...Until the day my boy had his first seizure and I thought he had died, that was the most scared I had ever been.

8. I came close once

I lived near Akron, OH for a period of time while my ex went to school. We had bad storms one night and a warning was issued for the county. It stormed like crazy that night. It wasn't until daylight came that we realized the apartment complex next door had been destroyed. Gave me the shivers.

9. WOW..

Isn't it odd how tornadoes are like that? Ultimate destruction on one side of the street and nothing a few feet away.

10. This happened a few miles from me

No close enough we were in danger, but still near. I remember we were having my 17th birthday party. Once the news hit everyone left.
