    Dayton Tornados

    This sounds really bad. Hearts out hoping everyone is safe and unharmed.

    Looks like the biggest tornado missed my mom's house in Riverside by 50 yards. Yards. A couple of my cousins had trees down and minor damage. Thankfully none of my family were injured or worse.

    I was driving during the middle of this last night. Thankfully, I was headed further down south. I don't think it went any further south than Riverside/Beavercreek (a new Aldis on N. Fairfield Rd. in Beavercreek was pretty much destroyed). A coworker of mine had substantial damage to their home, but most people I've talked to are OK. It's the suburbs up north that took a big hit.

    Arise and walk, come through. A world beyond that door is calling out for you. Arise and walk, come through. It's calling out for you.

    Re: Dayton Tornados

    The Brookville-Trotwood-Dayton-Beavercreek tornado was upgraded to an EF4.

    In my entire life I've never seen an outbreak like this hit this close to home. I used to live in Huber Heights on a slab foundation.


    The fact that only 1 confirmed casualty has been reported from this outbreak is incredible, especially considering this happened at night. Was it dumb luck or are the warning systems getting that much better?

    Also, I know Jamie Simpson has been getting made fun of about his rant on the air during the storm and while he may have got a little too animated, he was exactly right.

    The idea of going on Facebook and social media to complain about missing a show as stupid and pointless as The Bachelorette while meteorologists are doing their job to warn people of impending life threatening danger is just mind boggling. The Bachelorette? That's more important than getting people to safety?

    Hearing about that stuff makes me lose a little faith in humanity sometimes.

    I think it's a combination of warning systems getting better, people being more educated, construction standards, and other things making survivability of these things easier.

    Amazing isn't it? Maybe instead of a weather guy breaking in, they'd rather have a tornado "interrupt" their TV viewing. It's not like it's going to be like this ...

    I think if it had happened during the daytime, especially during rush hour, it would’ve been much worse. As bad as it is to be inside a house during a tornado, being outside is worse. I think it was a blessing that it happened when most people were home.
