    Fox saying 15 confirmed dead and 120 being treated at hospital. Isn't a tornado unusual for this time of year?

    It doesn't happen in this area on a frequent basis but so far this fall it has been unusually warm - yesterday we were close to 80 - this might not sound all that warm but it is sufficient to create lift in the atmosphere. I can recall a tornado on Christmas day about 10 years ago. Not common but not exactly unusual either.

    I grew up in Evansville. My parents and siblings still live in the Evansville area. Thankfully they are all present and accounted for this morning. The death toll is now up to 17.

    Thanks for the links. I grew up in Owensboro - use to go to Henderson and E town all the time. Glad your relatives are okay. Sounds like this must have been an F3 or F4 tornado, very bad news.

    The injured are at 200 and the death toll is expected to rise. This is the 2nd deadliest tornado in Indiana history, second only to the Super Outbreak in 1974, which was the largest outbreak of twisters in American history! This time all from ONE tornado!

    Here in the northern part of the state we had severe thunderstorms warnings and tornado watches. I was awake doing my storm spotter thing (from the safety of my house, lol, but at the windows) and there was quite a roar and for a few moments I thought a tornado was coming through, but it turned out not to be. Others reported the same roar, but nothing has been reported twister-wise. The winds have been extremely strong, as well, all day. We dropped from 64 degrees at midnight to currently 46!

    We'd been without power for about 5 hours here in Michigan (not good when you have an internet addiction). The wind sure is wicked today. Still trying to figure out if our wind is somehow connected to what spawned the tornado. Not at all warm here, so it's surprising to hear of Tornado's in November.

    Yes, it's all connected to a strong cold front that moved through last night. The storms moved FAST, too, at around 60mph! Any time you get a clash between warm-ish air and much colder air, the instability can cause tornadoes. (As I said, we dropped 20 degrees quickly.) There was an F4 tornado about an hour away from me in November just a few years ago, I remember.

    They think the tornado was at least an F3 and possibly and F4. From what damage I saw, I am thinking an F4 isn't out of the question.

    An overnight tornado ripped a 20-mile-long path through southwestern Indiana, killing at least 22 people and injuring some 230 others, officials said Sunday.

    Adam Groupey, deputy director of emergency management for Evansville and Vanderburgh County, said the tornado touched down about 2 a.m. in Henderson County, Kentucky, then crossed the Ohio River and hit an Evansville mobile home park before moving into Warrick County.

    State and county officials say the death toll in the wake of a tornado that struck southwestern Indiana has risen to 20.

    Officials expect it to grow even higher as rescuers comb through debris in a devastated mobile home park near Evansville -- but they had good news early Sunday afternoon.

    Rescuers found a young girl alive in a ditch at an Evansville trailer park devastated by the overnight tornado.

    A line of severe storms rolled through the Tri-state overnight.

    The severe weather traveled east and headed to the Tri-state area bringing strong winds and rain.

    One Pendleton County viewer watching 9News meteorologist Cindy O'Quinn's Sunday morning forecast calling for severe weather in some areas of Kentucky, called into the station.

    Just when I think that I have seen the most depraved things a human can do to another human, somebody posts a new story...........

    Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?

    Hi raisincharlie and deespoohbear ~ didn't know you were or are from this part of Indiana!!


    I grew up about thirty miles from Evansville and currently still live only fifty miles away. I actually lived in Evansville for a period of time many years ago. Still go shopping, etc., there and in Newburgh, which is an absolutely beautiful place, with its locks and dams, and quaint little shops. I am just sick at seeing the damage and loss of life, which keeps climbing. God bless the rescue and emergency crews who were on the scene very quickly and have been working tirelessly to find survivors. We have some friends that we don't know if they are okay, and we have one friend who has a friend whose son was killed. They have not found his wife and two kids yet. So very sad.


    DK ~ I was up last night keeping an eye on the weather, too, and saw this monster show up on radar and race through the area. Very scary, especially when you knew that most people were asleep and completely unaware of what was coming at them. We were so lucky here in my town to only get some very strong winds and lots of lightning.


    Blessings to all affected ~
