Starting this thread partly because I did hear from FnlPrblm this afternoon, relative to the storms that went through St. Louis, and happily he is okay...Yay! :)...although his folks' house and property suffered some minor damage from the baseball-sized hail that was with the storm.  :unsure:

He asked me to post that he was okay if I didn't see any posts by him to that effect, so that others would also know he's allright, as his laptop was about to give out and he wasn't sure how soon he'd be back on.

So Fnl is fine. :)


Anyway, I started thinking that maybe it's time to start this season's severe weather thread, as it's been pointed out elsewhere on the board that the Tornado Season got off to an early and deadly start, so this is a way for us to keep each other informed.


Could the mods pin this thread, so that it's quick to find for those checking in, and also for those of us checking on our friends?  Thanks!  :)

Purry Dot,

Being the person fascinated with severe weather on this board, I didn't hear about the outbreak-simply because I've been I-N-S-A-N-E-L-Y busy today. :wacko: I'm off to take a quick look at the Stormtrack board. :whatsthat:

Last night was really intense, although it didn't open up until about 40 min. after I got home.

I was on the way home from work last night and was in the middle of switching buses at an intersection and while waiting for the lights to change, I turned and looked back and saw a huge low wall of dark clouds come rolling in.....fast.  I thought it was going to open up and dump a lot of rain on me right then, thankfully I had my umbrella at the ready.  Surprisingly, the rain didn't really start for a good hour or so, which gave me more than enough time to do my errand on my way home, grab a quick bite, and head home quickly.  We had lots of thunder and lightning in the Toronto area last night and lots of rain.

Outside of that, I didn't lose any power and my internet was fine.

Indeed I'm okay. :)  Thanks Peri for posting on my behalf.  I've been super busy with things.  House currently has multiple windows out.  My parents car has had various issues, including a smashed windshield from several baseball sized hail hitting it.  My car was spared the baseball sized hail, but got hit with three waves of quarter sized hail.  I already was heavily looking into buying a new car for well over a month.  And Saturday I finally got to pull the trigger on one.  There have been other things too.  But overall, no one is hurt and just dealing with the clean up, the insurance people and the re-builders.

Glad to hear you're okay, FNL.  Good luck with the home issues you're dealing with between the repairs and the damage to your parent's car.

You're welcome.  :)

And as Darkside mentioned, I hope things will get straightened out with the storm damage you and your folks are dealing with.

:hugs:


Also, a late but sincere thank you to Darkside for pinning the thread and fixing my subtitle! It's appreciated! :)

Heavy rains, low clouds and strong wind gusts today.  :crazy:

The wind wrecked a couple of arms of my strong umbrella on my way to work after getting off the bus while switching to a local route as I was on an express service route.  I ended up taking a taxi the rest of the way to work, and took a cab home from work.

Already in downtown Toronto, we got flooding in one of our "nexus point" subway stations that closed down a few stations on that stretch, that the transit service had to call in around 80 or so busses to serve as shuttles between the affected areas.

It's a mess out there....

There were some bad storms in the northeast last night.  The worst missed me, but anyone in NYC, NJ or other places affected, please check in!

I'll come back with articles in a bit.

guess this is where everyone will put these? Sandy_2012,
so all east shore-ers getting the first hints, much winds and rains, this perfect stormish idea will most def be big and wide, and sit round for at least three-four days, so much inches of rainfalls and high winds: they are saying that NJ is def preparing for power outages with preapproved overtime, but bigger questions are up or down from there, like MD and Mass. areas, plus long island, cape cod...
http://www.baltimore...0,2792596.story
so here is a columnist blogger who writes really specializes in weather plus current events news impacting, you can follow along with weather underground or whichever you like but also follow this guy for upcoming week, as this thing sloshes the Hattaras, virginia beach, Ocean city, areas, before whipping and sloshing cape may and on upward... so y'all living up east shore way, keep lookouts, plan power, emergency bag, generators, candles, propane stoves, camp lamps et al, maybe go visit grans three hundred miles inland for a week? ;)

' The outlook had emergency officials and utilities asking residents to begin preparing for power outages, flooding and damage. Baltimore Gas and Electric Co. has begun mobilizing 1,300 workers for storm crews, officials said Thursday.
The National Hurricane Center's forecast cone called for possible landfall anywhere from North Carolina's Outer Banks to Cape Cod in Massachusetts, with the most likely target the southern New Jersey shore early Tuesday. Precise predictions will change as the storm progresses and meteorologists re-run models.
The European model, which has drawn criticism from meteorologists for over-hyping the potential impact of East Coast storms, was calling Thursday for Sandy to drive up the Delmarva. Other models, like an American one known as the GFS, predicted the storm will strike New York.
The National Weather Service predicted the potential for more than 3 to 4 inches across eastern parts of Maryland from the storm, and a 35 percent chance of tropical storm-force winds of at least 39 mph in Ocean City through Tuesday.
The Maryland Emergency Management Agency warned of a slow-moving storm that could bring two straight days of heavy rain and strong winds even if Sandy doesn't make landfall in Maryland, causing heavy surf in Ocean City and Assateague Island and wet snow in western Maryland.

Safe and sound here.  We got off lightly (I'm in Quincy, just South of Boston).  NYC and NJ did not. The storm has caused the Great Lakes to act up as well-- I have some friends in Ohio who have damage and flooding in their areas as well, but they're okay.
