April Showers Bring 4am Severe Weather Sirens

We took the kids downstairs at 4am this morning when the severe thunderstorm warning for our county turned into a tornado warning and the civil defense sirens went off twice in fifteen minutes. We survived, our power flickered but never failed, and the only harm was our three-year old's desire to stay up and watch a "movie". Apparently, Gene Norman and Stormtracker46 are compelling viewing for a three-year old. The morning news reports that a possible small tornado hit a just few miles south of here with some damage and no injuries. I don't like 4am storms. I hope it did not get The Rib Ranch...


Update: The strom that hit south of us has been confirmed by the NWS as either a F-0 or F-1 tornado.
