    Hope your family and animals are all ok. Are the fruit trees there bloomed out yet?​

    This morning we had one come through here. It didn't touch down and the alarm didn't go off until it was out of town. Good thing it didn't touch down. There where no warnings that it was here either.

    I've been at work since 9 am and the wind blew the door open. when I went to close it I saw the funnel cloud. while I was trying to see if it touched the ground the hail started. Scared me to death. After it passed by the alarms went off. It was really nasty here. I'm in Union City Tennessee.

    I just spoke with my husband who drives a truck and he said that the cell moving out I-20 toward GA from AL is extreemly dangerous and that we should all be prepared for it! Serious hail, winds and tornados!
