Tornado

Reports have come in that a tornado has hit the town of Columbia, Mississippi. Reports coming in state that Highway 98 has been closed in Columbia after a reported tornado downed power lines in the area. The public are being warned not to travel in this area at this time. Other reports say that homes have been damaged by the twister trapping some residents and injuring local citizens. There are reports of vehicles that have been flipped over by the high winds.

A report from LALATE letting residents of Columbia know there was a tornado alert in the area came in and within eight minutes, a twister was reported to have touched down on the south side of the town and telling residents to immediately seek shelter. Now the reports of damage are coming in. There were reports during the event that debris falling from the sky and Highway 98 and Columbia-Purvis Road had downed power lines affecting the area. There are additional reports coming in of structural damage around Columbia, including damage to a mobile home park.

Assessment of damages and injuries will come as emergency personal can reach all the areas hit by the December 23 tornado. There have been no reports at this time of any fatalities from the twister.

    Oh yeah, one other thing. If the dreams were really predicting stuff, the tornadoes are not yet over. If my weird brain is correct, expect another one soon. This will be during the daytime and a bus may be involved. I was inside the bus trying to help the driver keep control of the bus while the funnel came right down on it. Damned funnel cloud was so powerful it literally was turning the bus back and forth swivel like, like a toy. Literally like a toy, a spinning top – like all those tons of steel were nothing

    This is nuts. I’m in Oregon and dreamed this entire tornado incident late last night and early this morning. When I was a kid, I used to be able to predict tornadoes the day before they happened. Always these horribly vivid dreams. This is the first time in years I’ve dreamed of them again. Last night’s was so realistic. Terrifying. This dark milky looking tornado just forms during a storm and comes so fast nobody has time to take cover. I saw one man standing upright being blown backwards through the freaking air with his feet like two feet off the ground. Then there was this bright crispy flash of lightning so close you could smell the electricity. The wind was INTENSE and the air was literally so dark. A bunch of kids were running across a road screaming as the funnel was coming. “Hide! Hide in the graveyard,” one yelled. I said, “I don’t think it’ll be any safer there! Keep running!” I woke thinking maybe it was a scary warning about finances or something. Then I wondered, “Gee… what if I accidentally dreamed a real life tornado again? But a tornado just before Christmas, that’s impossible…”

    Then I type tornado into Google News just to be sure.

    o.O

    Why would part of my brain go stormchasing in Mississippi and in these other places? What’s the purpose? What use is it? Hope everyone there is okay
