Those fools should have been taking shelter not shooting video. Could easily have been Darwin contenders.

True if there was a second tornado but if they were to the southwest of the twister they would be fine.



Saint Cloud, Minnesota, where the weather is wonderful even when it isn't.

Yes, I got very lucky ... my area, incredibly, saw barely anything ... just a bit of wind and some very light rain (!) ...

Other areas, such as Arabi, Chalmette, St. Bernard, not so lucky. I don't remember where flareslow lives, but I think he and/or his kids might have been in the path of these.

Edit: at least one death so far, no firm count on injuries, many homes flattened, power out for thousands. It was scary last night, emergency alerts continuously going off.

Thanks for the concern Peter - we're all ok. The tornado that hit the Northshore was different than the one that hit Arabi. It passed within about 2 miles of our house, but we didn't see or hear it. It's path was mostly over pine forests and damage that I saw this morning was limited to trees down across highways. We didn't lose power or cell service (our internet). Nasty storms though!

Yes, I didn't remember where you all were ... I think we're the only two MRF'ers in New Orleans, but not 100% sure.

Pretty terrible, the images and videos that are surfacing of the damage.

I've lived in on the Northshore for a total of about 25 years over the last 41years and this is the first tornado I can recall that has hit a NOLA populated area and inflicted major damage, excluding any that were associated with hurricanes.

Glad to hear all our friends in the area safe. Did the tornado suck Freya's icon off the user map?

Actually we got them back in 2008 I believe ... they hit areas of Uptown not too far from me, including one that went straight down Carrollton and St. Charles Aves, which are mostly high-value homes and old multimillion dollar mansions... the tornadoes seemed to use the major thoroughfares as an alley down which to travel. I heard of a couple people whose homes were flattened by those. But I think you're right that they were associated with a hurricane, it might have been Gustav?
