I'm at lunch, and have to head back to work soon-but I heard on the radio that severe thunderstorms and tornadoes killed 14 in Florida early this morning. :(

Florida Ex-Islers like schoolspycho, please check in and let us know you're okay.

:(

Politicians are like bananas; they hang together, they're all yellow, and there's not a straight one among them.

The deaths and damage were mostly in a retirement community.  I hope no members' older relatives were in the storms' path.  Considering the utter devastation in 100 square miles of three FL counties, the death toll is pretty low, although I fear rescuers may find more victims.

A-O-K here.  The tornadoes were all a good bit northwest of Orlando, so I wasn't affected.

Imus had some pictures this morning. Not much left standing.



:hugs:  For the Florida folks!



Move to West Virginia, we have a bit of flooding but no hurricanes, and darn few tornados.

This thread is a good idea---but a lot of people never come into this forum.

Maybe someone could put up a similar thread in the Beach?  Or a mod could move this one if Digital Man agrees?

I would also be glad to know that sp is safe....:unsure:

I'm happy to move it if you want DM.

Bear in mind also - schoolpsycho hasn't been on EI for a couple of months according to his profile.

Sparky,

I learned that schoolpsycho is okay from someone here, so that's a big relief. :)

As to this thread being moved to a better place-I'll leave that up to you. I haven't been here in more than a year, and I honestly don't pay all that much attention to who-goes-where.
