Rodalco has a really nice (IMHO) worldwide tour there. A few places I had to think about!

My travel plans this year have been canceled for now due to the car accident in mid June and have been in and out of the hospital (started with Trauma unit) and therapy now. Hoping to get back to work October 1st.

Yes Bill, a very close call was in Joplin Missouri in 2011, We were in heavy traffic and in a rain wrapped tornado, was behind us less then a quarter mile, which killed unfortunately 161 people. As we had computer data we knew what was going on. Tried to warn local people as well but we also had to get out to a safe zone.

Link to a YouTube video I made, while in Joplin, most of the buildings were destroyed 30 seconds after us moving and many people in cars in the video may have been killed, we will never know.




Tornadoes are best to watch in Kansas, as the roads are pretty good, land is flat for good observation.

It seems you might've been lucky to get out of there. Wouldn't catch me being there on purpose!!

I found some pictures of that Town, unbelievable!!. I've never seen what a Tornado can do to Brick & Mortar Buildings like that Home Depot and School(s).

BTW, Great Youtube Channel you have there!!
