Tornado



  • In Shawnee county. Stay safe fellow bucketeers in the area. @jayballer54



  • @BShark Hey we survived it Buddy. That was some scary shit. - -Like 5 Tornado warnings all at the same time. - -One right by Silver Lake , just North west of Topeka, One out by Bellvelle, One five miles South West of Eskridge , One right outside of Auburn, One five miles outside of Meriden, - -NOT GOOD buddy, thank for thinking about me, What was really crazy Fire Dept was out fighting wild fire and Emergency Crews had to go get them and tell them to get the hell out, as there was a tornado wrapped in dust coming right at them.

    Think we are in the clear now, Umm I’ve been through my share but not so many at once - - ROCK CHALK ALL DAY LONG BABY



  • Fires all around here. Evacuations!



  • Huge storm just about over KC with the worst of it on the north side by the airport. We are expecting the southern portion to be over Olathe in the next 20-30 minutes.



  • I have to evacuate🙏 For me



  • i’m up north in KC sirens been going on and off for about an hour. Stay safe everyone!



  • @Crimsonorblue22

    Will do, stay safe. The heaviest part of the storm is a few minutes away…hopefully no hail…



  • @JayHawkFanToo

    Facebook has a warped sense of humor or really bad timing…

  • @JayHawkFanToo Same storms that came through her earlier. - -ROCK CHALK ALL DAY LONG BABY



  • @jayballer54

    Indeed. The worst part of the storm is just North of me…keeping fingers crossed.



  • Storm went by. All is safe and calm at JayHawkFanToo’s manor…

    Thoughts and prayers.

    @jayballer54

    Wow. I’m basically that close to Meriden. Well I think 9 miles officially. Winds were RAGING here, but didn’t see a tornado thankfully.



  • Half the town is being evacuated. Car is packed. Sticking it out a bit



  • @JayHawkFanToo Streaming fox4kc & show home damage at 145th in Leawood. Also Smithville area damaged as well. Squall line between Independence & Pittsburg now-approaching Joplin. be here abt 1:00-2:00am. Tornado watch till 3:00am 80 air miles from Joplin here, 110 by car. Be here abt 1:00-2:00am. Tornado watch till 3:00am. We & abt 30 relatives were at a grad party in Webb City in 2011 & left abt an hour before the tornado hit Joplin. Had driven in through Pittsburg going down but returned to JOCO via 71 HY after seeing approaching radar. 2 of our nieces are RN’s at Freeman West in Joplin & were immediately called to work… All our relatives in Pittsburg & Joplin came out OK except for the trauma the girls endured from their jobs. Horrible, just horrific stories.



  • @globaljaybird

    That is a couple of miles from my home. Luckily all we had was showers, intense for a few minutes, but gone fairly quickly.



  • @BShark I’ve friends in Oskaloosa, McClouth & on the East side of Perry Lake. Y’all dodged some big ass bullets tonight.



  • @Crimsonorblue22

    Be careful and be safe; let us know how you holding up.



  • @JayHawkFanToo Glad no damage, lotsa people not that fortunate. Size of hail on tv is deadly. That stuff destroys a ton of property-homes, cars, trees & landscape…



  • @globaljaybird check out the fires around here. Weird what you pack up. Half the neighbors still here. Their watching out for me though



  • @Crimsonorblue22 Had no idea-don’t pack squat-Get Rio & go. How close is is to you now?
