    Waskom Texas Tornado

    This happened yesterday at our place in Waskom Texas; we were in our soft top jeep and had just made a run to get out of the tornado's path to the south. We thought the tornado had lifted, but it had actually become rain wraped and passed just to our north; some good footage of the wall cloud though.

    Here, we drove down the road 2 miles and saw where it had been on the ground.

    I took these damage pic's this morning; luckily nobody was killed and there was only minor injuries.

    Wow! That's crazy. Glad no one was hurt.

    Yeah, glad everyone's okay. Not too far from here, as the tornado travels. I guess tornado season started a few weeks early. My 11 year old doesn't love when they talk about "the T-word" on the TV or radio.

    Glad nobody was hurt. Tornadoes do strange things - in one picture, the mobile home is totally destroyed, yet the cattle trailer is upright.

    I'm glad you escaped unscathed. I'm in NW Louisiana, and at about the same time, we apparently had one nearby, though it wasn't on the ground. It passed just south of my neighbors house, stripped a lot of shingles off of his house and rolled a grain trailer and his camper trailer around. I'm just a few hundred yards away and got nothing but rain and wind. I'm thankful for that luck.

    I've been through Waskom many times, especially in the pre I-20 days (hwy 80). Wasn't there a Stuckey's on 80 at Waskom, or at least something like a Stuckey's?
