Yesterday morning @ 4:55 or so AM...Took out Harrisburgh Illinois. Lots of damage and several deaths, hundreds injured. The track of this storm was just south of my local area. I have resigned myself to the fact that it's only a matter of time. No not wishing for it, hoping for it, or wanting to see it...................It's just a feeling based on years of weather experience. Something is different, and these past to years prove that very well.

15 Tornadoes in the immediate tri-state area yesterday morning.........all did some sort of damage. Crazy nuts.

I feel for those most affected..

And the beat goes on: Ever since NBC purchased the Weather Channel they have embraced the sensationalism associated with gathering eyeballs for ratings and ad revs........I just love the guy who came up with the torcon thing... :crazy: 🙄

It's my opinion that under the guise of safety these folks have producers who simply live for such events. It's disgusting...............and the public so dumbed down, now beyond hope, UNWITTINGLY FEEDS THEM FREE INFORMATION via social media.........more fuel for embellishment.

May I ask you: Why not take some of their ill gotten gains and build people in Tornado alley some storm shelters, or update the warning system ( warning sirens ) maybe update the radar collection systems..........do some good as opposed to profit off of complete grief...and insane stress...

Argue all you want about the good they do..............then explain their reality series on everything from soup to nuts doom and gloom weather related crap!!! I'm all ears.

INSANE!!!!!!!!!

Your world as you know it, isn't what it seems..........If I was so inclined and had the time, means, energy.............I'd write a book about it and give it away for free.

FEMA denied the residence of Harrisburg Illinois ans surrounding areas low interest Government loans. Said that the level of destruction didn't rise to FEMA guidelines for relief, or something of that nature.

BUT YES.............PLEASE send your money to Haiti, or Japan, or anywhere else by simply TEXTING......YADA YADA YADA..........

As a people.........will we ever really get it? EVER!!!

Simply amazing how easily the masses are so easily mislead.

It's one thing to volunteer your time and energy, quite another to truly give of your self. THIS COUNTRY sometime loses sight of that and I find that to be a massive embarrassment.

We are too full of ourselves to ever understand such things, UNTIL THEY TOUCH US PERSONALLY............Then for some strange reason we find religion..
JMHO..

PS. It hailed yesterday.............covered the ground, took many many Oak flowers and leaves off of the trees, destroyed anything already growing in the garden...No big deal.....just more money down the drain..Local idiots stopping in the street thinking that would save their cars from damage..one dumbass tried to pull under one of my large pines in the front yard.. I feel for people..........really really feel for em. A very small rogue storm killed a man in SO Illinois yesterday. Out of the blue, just reached down and punched his ticket.

What are the FEMA guidelines for the threshold of recieving FEMA aid? They sent checks out for $3400 immediatly to anyone with a Northridge zip code with an apartment number, which really urked me. I worked with idiots who laughed about and kept the money, saying they were not even affected, while those who need it, like me, couldn't get FEMA for months to come out and look at our damage. The same idiots flocked down to the free givaway programs for food and water they also did not need, while many people slept in thier yards.

We never see hail where I live in California, it just hardly ever happens in our kind of weather. Feeling uncomfortable about pushing on, I would probably do the same thing, pull over and wait it out, thinking less damage would occur to my vehicle standing still or under a tree, than driving thru falling hail. I would also not want my windshield broken out while driving down the street just to get another mile or two, it doesn't make sence not to stop JMHO.

The hail was pea to marble size, probably not enough to damage anything other than young plants, shoots, flowers ETC. Large hail knocks out windows, damages roofs, destroys siding on homes, flattens crops, and oh yes...knocks windshields, said and back glass out of vehicles. Last Month it did thousands of dollars worth of damage to some relatives, cars, trucks and homes North of where I live. I posted a pic. 3-K -5-K worth to each vehicle caught in the line of fire. Makes no difference if driving or sitting still in a car park.

The IDIOT who blocked traffic, causing people to attempt to pass on a very very busy road, just needed to drive another mile and he would have been home free. No hail just up the road a bit. These storms are isolated in nature, small yet violent. It's the super cells that can be super killers.

Anyway FEMA are hand picked, rules are for who they say they are. If you have money based on location, good homeowners insurance, THEY KNOW ALL THESE THINGS---------Then you're shit out of luck unless you've near dead....

JMHO........Yet there are far too many events that prove this to be more fact than fiction.

Harrisburg was ( a large portion was ) completely destroyed.....what level that rises to is obviously beyond my grasp.

That's amazing. Yeah, I remember staying there with my crew during UFO Hunters (and of course when I lectured). We walked down towards the right of the picture (Bob White was a trooper - not so warm out there) to try and do the interview outside. It didn't work too well outside, so we moved inside.

I am glad you are okay, Larry.... I'm thinking about you and send my best.

We have the earthquakes to contend with, and the midwest has these tornados which are unherd of in California. We see a very rarly, a very small occurance or what they call a water spout offshore, but I do not think they are even close to catagory 1. I think they may really be what we call dust devils, but a bit larger. Most times either do no damage or a few shingles.

My only thought is this one:

Earthquakes are sinister, Tornadoes are pure evil. Give me sinister any day of the week and twice on Sunday..my druthers are neither, and NEVER.

Wind is an amazing force, once harnessed something no one can ever defend..I'm very curious about all of that sort of stuff.

Anyway........big squall line setting up tomorrow afternoon...you can watch it LIVE on NOAA..........I know I will but I'll have the safety of my family in mind as I do!!!

And just so anyone interested wants to learn something. Wind does little to remove roofs unless it hurricane force and above...............the updraft or LIFT of a near passing Twister will lift an entire structure, let alone a roof. 😉

Coroner now releasing names of those killed in Harrisburg....So sad..
