    I'm in KY. These places are just above me. This same system came right through where I live and work. We were just lucky.

    Hope everyone battens down the hatches and eludes the tornado monsters this year.

    E-Town?

    I live about 25 air miles east of Lexington.
    And nasty weather this way passed a while ago.

    My mom lives in Marshfield (20 miles east of Springfield), and she said the worst went just to the north and south of them.

    Best of luck to all near the storms. The weather here has been freaky for a week now; 82 one day after a a high of 62, back & forth. No tornadoes here but the season is upon us.

    Twister terror last night...
    :eek:
    Tornadoes claim 11 lives in US
    Fri, Mar 02, 2012 - RIPPED APART: Homes were smashed to bits, cars were tossed into lakes, trees were uprooted and shops were reduced to rubble in towns from Nebraska to Kentucky
    See also:

    Looks to be a severe weather spring for us after a mild winter, tornado season around here usually starts in April; Henryville and Marysville, Ind. hit hard by an F4 a couple of hours ago across the river (Ohio) from here...

    3 killed as storms roar across Midwest, South
    2 Mar.`12 – Powerful storms stretching from the Gulf Coast to the Great Lakes flattened buildings in several states, wrecked a small Indiana town and bred anxiety across a wide swath of the country in the second powerful tornado outbreak this week.
