Wow! This is a Mother's Day that I will not soon forget. Georgia's coast was hit by a tornado on Sunday morning. One of the local marinas was hit and many boats were sunk. Blackbeard Sailing School had its sailboats moved from their moorings to the other side of the river. Our local EMS station was completely destroyed along with 3 ambulances and 1 fire truck. My house was only pelted by nickel size hail. The community of Darien was heavily damaged. Check out www.wtoc.com and check out the damage. We are all safe.

A tornado has got to be the scariest thing, right up there with an earthquake.
I think Iíll pass on both.

Coastman, we got some tornados from the same storm up here in NC. Many places had hail; one place (I think it was Bertie County) had 4 1/4 inch hail! That's as big as a grapefruit! I'm glad I didn't get caught in that. Most of the hail around my area was golf ball size, some up to tennis ball size. Fortunately, only minor injuries, even from the one that was an EF 3.

coastman,I am so glad everyone is ok. Glad your ok too..TheCarolinaScotsman.I agree with JC I will pass on both plus the huge hail.

I watched a few nasty dirt devils right in front of my car traveling this weekend. A biker was in front of me and the girl on the back was in a tank top and all I can say is OUCH...the dirt was whirling pretty bad. They kept their bike up ok and it moved on took off a big sign on a building. But it dropped right after it took it off. Scary stuff was bad enough in a car...

I remember one in the 60's that happened on Palam Sunday here in Michigan. My Dad worked for the country and my mom at the hospital both got called out before the storm hit. I couldn't find my brother and was at home by myself. Some guys that I knew stopped by to make sure we were alright ,but there I was . They took it upon themselfs to become my babysitters and off we went,we followed it. I seen things that I don't ever want to see again. It went out where my mother was born and family still lived,barns blowing up, cows flying, tractors rolling over, a water spout over Coldwater Lake,seen three houses in a row and it took the one out of the middle. They had National Gruad in for about a week no one in or out for that time orders to shot to kill. My aunts and uncles fram got hit but not real bad but my grandmothers house was a loss all family members came out with their lives,so thank god for that.

Now back home when I got there well lets just my dad wasn't very happy and my friend Tom was told if he ever did anything like that again he would become his father and we all knew what that meant. My brother was two houses down from ours and Mom didn't come home for two days and the stories she had of people that they had at the hospital.

like I said I don't want to see anything like that again.

Would that have been the "Palm Sunday Tornado's?"

I was managing a restaurant during the above and we delivered food and drink to the rescue workers around the area. The first day I saw sights that were horrible. Livestock dead and hanging in trees. (people too in trees and fields.) There were no warning systems then and part of the area hit was an Amish community. The Amish had no communication. I was in North Eastern Indiana at the time. I remember coming back from a meeting and watching the sky to the West ahead of me. It was an ugly green color and I thought at the time there was likely to be severe storms. I would have been about 45 miles south of Coldwater lake at the time. My town was not hit.

Oh yes Patch it was on that day,Kinderhook got hit the worst thats where the Guard was. I'm not sure where it stared but it went down Southern Rd just outside Bronson(thats where I grewup at) ,then went all the way to old 27 just on the Ind. line. I'm sorry you seen some of the things I seen.I was about 13 and still I can remember it like it was yesterday,it will always be with me and still til this day I don't like it when they give out the warnings it always comes back to what might happen.

If you have a "weather radio" and a place to take shelter you are ok. I remember when I was in school they sent a paper home that told what channel to tune your TV to and if a tornado was close the TV would emit a high pitched scream. I don't think that band width is even on todays televisions. Those sights were really bad but the military was able top them.
