    This is ripped right from weatherchannel.com about the storm that just hit:

    THIS IS A DANGEROUS STORM. IF YOU ARE IN ITS PATH...PREPARE IMMEDIATELY FOR DAMAGING WINDS...AND DEADLY CLOUD TO GROUND LIGHTNING. GO INDOORS NOW... PREFERABLY INSIDE A STRONG BUILDING AND AWAY FROM WINDOWS.

    THIS STORM HAS A HISTORY OF PRODUCING DAMAGING WINDS. GO INDOORS NOW... PREFERABLY INSIDE A STRONG BUILDIN AND AWAY FROM WINDOWS.​

    That's not good. I'm at my friend's house and I'm afraid to leave because my mother would have to come and pick me up. It's pretty intense.

    EDIT: Yes, WeatherChannel.com has that all in CAPS LOCK.

    My guess is you live in the East Coast.
    Funny thing is... I sent that, I was actually trying to conjure another spell using the rain dance.

    Seriously. A huge branch from a Tree almost hits my parked car last week on one of those, terrible. Be extra careful as if this one is like last week, it definetely looks like a Tornado.

    Central US has been ravaged by a huge storm for the past week.

    Holy shit, at least you get forewarned about tornadoes. With earthquakes here in Cali, there's no telling when the next one will strike.

    Yep...I too live in the upstate...had some crazy winds. Lots of rain and lightning at some point but didn't see the "golf ball sized" hail we were supposed to get. Did hear a small tornado touched down in quasi-nearby saranac lake region.

    You know when a professional site like that uses all caps that's some serious shit that's going to happen. I personally wouldn't leave your friends house, you're much safer there then outside [​IMG]

    Yeah, also, it's useful advice because most computers are located outside of buildings.

    Pshh we saw no hail up here on Sodus Bay.
    Amazing thunderstorm though, fantastic, shook the house on it's foundation, and fork lighting dancing across the bay.
    It was awesome [​IMG]

    I love thunderstorms. Just recently there was one here in Ohio. They're exciting to watch.
