    It was rough for a while..We have a very good station close by that essentially gives live updates..Did end up in some hail though while distancing tornadoes.

    There were several..many didn't touch down though..not sure how many touchdowns there were..had some three miles away when I decided to pull the trigger and leave.. I went East as the storm was headed NNE..and west of me was getting hammered.
    I was good...had to relocate ..A few miles a couple of times.had the radio going with live updates...and had the radar going on my phone.
    The cell wasn't very wide at all just 3 or 4 miles..but very very long..we been getting rain storms which developed in Texas last few days.unusual pattern for us as we usually get what ever passes over the Rocky Mountains from the West.
    The Rocky Mountain weather front built enough steam to push the other storm cell East just like that...was pretty much instant on my radar.
    It pushed it east and North of me.
    Meanwhile south and east of me is a hot zone...it's raining to hard to drive..no visibility..it breaks..I use the radar to see the size of the hole..race to the nearest town with about three minutes to spare..then more tornadoes over by the house on the radio..so I stay put ... keep an eye on the radar..I see a window to make it home as going west now is my best bet..it was one hell of an evening.
    I flip on the TV and there is a young guy in there giving very detailed instructions to different areas.. no blanket area stuff ..very precise with precise locations.. how long you had to find a place to hunker down.
    He was calling tornadoes before they happened...he had his giant screen so zoomed in that it was blocky..then he would pan to another place...dude was tracking the stuff like a cat on mice.. they usually have hot chicks for the weather..but the tits sat and watched while this dude threw his heart and soul into his job.
    Guy on the radio...same thing...it was pro only today
    I an winding down now have the radio down low...if it gets serious I will hear weird sounding organ type music for a few seconds..I will turn it up then and see what's going on..
    My phone finally stopped going off..weather alerts we're popping constantly ..would cover whatever you had on your screen..wouldn't stop until you hit "confirm"...then would do it again and you had to hit confirm again.
    One hell of an evening... my stylo four LG phone come through with it's super long screen on time..will go 10 plus hours screen on time fully charged I left the house in the 30s percent wise..my massive screen with dual window support..and back button and a better data radio than the prior Samsung has earned it's keep

    Jefferson City got hit with an e5.. 200 plus mph winds.
    That is a force of 82,000 pounds on a fifty by eight foot wall... It's not going to be pretty in Jefferson City.. Damage will be extensive for any stick homes as well as some block homes.. debri goes every where .. even if your home hold up.. the giant dumpster down the street can come crashing through.. automobiles.. parts of other homes.
    Let's hope people found appropriate shelter

    There are some states worse than others...and some areas in those states that it happens more frequently..I am not in one of the worst lines though
