I have been near places where they have had tornaro warnings, etc, but have never actually been through one myself. There have been super bad storms where it seemed like a tornado, but never was one. Well, now there is one predicted for around where I live. That is a photo I took a few minutes ago. And a notice from our Bureau of Meteorology. :-(
