Default Tornado

We were sitting at work today and we weren't busy at all... all of a sudden the lights start flickering (remember, I work L&D at the hospital) and then it went pitch black for about 15 seconds. We got up and walked around and noticed out the window that there were tree limbs blowing in the wind and the trees were standing over! The emergency generators came on and the wind outside continued... it was the craziest thing ever. Fast forward about 15 minutes and it's over minus the rain. All kinds of roofs were were blown off (Hobby Lobby, Fazolis, KMart, Office Depot) and Hobby Lobby caught on fire... Several windows were busted on the top floor of the hospital. They declared that a tornado passed over.... it was nuts!

That really is crazy! I'm so glad you guys were spared. What do you even do in that situation? Can they get the patients in to a safer location or at least the halls? It isn't like a hurricane where you get a lot of warning. Yikes!

We had a tornado like that hit when I was a kid and it took out an entire towns worth of stores and shops and sadly killed a few people as well. We've had tornado's since then but that one just really stuck with people and everyone still talks about it.

I hope that the destruction is minimal and no lives were lost.

I just reread that Hobby Lobby caught fire! Wow. That really is just awful sounding.

There was NO warning what-so-ever! We were just sitting minding our own business and bam it was hitting.... it wasn't even raining before! Worst case scenerio we move the patients to the hallways. We didn't have time to move them so we moved them away from the windows in the rooms, luckily we only had 3 patients at the time... it was nuts... it just sucked the back of Hobby Lobby off!
