thrusday night Ownesboro got hit hard, luckly my neighborhood area was missed, but i live not far from where the video was taken (link at bottom) going to my moms house from my dads i had to go about to 2 1/2 miles out of my way to get the 1/2 down the road, several roads are blocked off including a 7 block long by probably 7 block wide (dont really know how wide) area that got detroyed downtown, along with several random isolated areas of severe damage around town the drove by the scrap metal yard in town and there are 12 foot I-beems in the walls of houses and metal all over the place, it was a crazy sight less than a mile down the road from my dads house (outside of the city) another tornado hit several houses and cut a nice path through some woods

i thought about taking picutres, but that seemed very rude and inconsiderit after i thought about it, but CNN took a video of just a little bit of it, theres also a couple of pictures, im not sure if the video on the website will expire anytime soon or not Storms' death toll up to 6 - CNN.com

actual video of the tornado hitting town, go to link, and scroll towards bottom of page AccuWeather.com - Weather Blogs - Weather News

Commander Dox;3990344 While all this was going on I was at a teakwondo class...

i got locked inside of Macy's lol, me and my mom were going to leave before they locked the doors, we walked out, i stopped and looked around. i noticed it looked exactly the same as when we had the tornado in 2000, so i was "yeah....maybe we should just go back inside"

it was odd cause usually the strong parts of the storm go south or stay north of the river and go through Evansville

Yeah weather can be strange sometimes... Me, my mom, and my brother got stuck in Eastland Mall for about 2 hours last year wich stunk. Sometimes being on the edge of the Tornado district sucks.
