#7 Nice pics at #1 link.

I'm going to guess that basements are a rarity in that area. Also, lots of brick buildings.

I sheltered in a brick building once. Had an epiphany; decided I would take the risk to get anywhere else than do that again. Cracked a beer and tried not to hum, "something, something, down like a ton of bricks."

#8 February is springtime severe weather preparedness month. It may seem a bit early, but in tornado land if you are having springtime weather, be ready for springtime weather.

Test out your emergency kit. Stuff goes bad, and lifestyle changes may be subtle until you grab your boogy bag. Had a lifestyle change myself I didn't even consider: kids are growing up, able to stay home without supervision. As a result, in the event of an emergency I may not be home to grab the bag. Because I didn't want to herd children and grab multiple bags, everything is in one bag. That bag is too heavy for the kids to comfortably lift - time to repack for a everyone gets their own. Also, one is old enough to be a hand, so medical gloves and such.

And to re-emphasize, take a look at those photos. It is difficult to describe the utter mess you don't see. There is so much broken glass, nails in wood, sharp metal edges that getting around is nearly impossible without good gloves and boots. I don't mean those neat-o goat skin gloves, I mean fencing gloves or sheet metal gloves.

#10 It was pretty intense here between 4:00 AM and 5:00 AM. Lots of wind, hard rain, and lightning. Not nearly as bad as Nashville.
