Default OT - Tornado went 2 miles from our house

The recent tornados in MS went through Clinton. The national news
showed one 'to the West of Jackson'. It was a couple of miles from
our house. We spent some time in the bath tub with cushions over our
heads...but the wind never went above 40 mph here.

We wondered what a tornado would do to our pond. We have heard of
ponds being emptied. Happily, we did not get to see. Has anyone had
a tornado visit a pond they knew of?

OMGosh, glad to hear it didn't come close, some really scary pictures
coming out of those areas that were hit. ~ jan

Default Tornados picking up fish

I take your point!

Here is a site that disacusses tornados and fish...and frogs.
