Tornado Warning

The worst of the storms missed us last night, but a tornado apparently destroyed a house in a nearby county. Unlike a hurricane, the "super cell" was relatively concentrated and moved very fast (60 mph). The local TV station was giving us warnings with various town scheduled right to the minute. In less than an hour, the intense part of the storm had passed by. We just got a lot of rain, something like 5 inches over night.
