    Default Lindsay Tornado 5/24/12

    Took these last night near Lindsay NE. I was leaving work, and noticed something that looked like a funnel in the sky. Kept watching it, and noticed that it was moving closer to the ground. I hammered it, and caught up, and snapped some pics. The house pictured was about 3 years old, and pretty nice. The family just made it into the basement before the tornado hit. None of them were injured. There was no warning. I heard the sirens going off in town after the tornado had picked back up and wasn't visable.



















    About 10 minutes after it hit.





    And, later that night after most of the cleanup was done.

    So you weren't driving a GTP then I take it?


    Very cool pictures. Did you go over to that house right away to see if they were alright?

    Nope...I was driving a 5.4L 3V....pretty sure I altered the route of the tornado.

    Yeah, I made sure they were ok, then I took that one picture. I helped them clean up and move stuff out of the house for a few hours. Then took a few more pictures when it was close to dark.

    I saw the video....Nick and his buddy were driving by maybe 30 minutes after it happened, and I talked to them, and they showed me the video.

    No, there were probably 5 people out there before me. The family was already outside when I got there. There was 2 or 3 daughters, all looked to be pretty shaken up.

    Yeah, I wish I would have been closer to get a picture of that. I thought I was closer than I was. It's hard to tell how close you actually are to it.

    Were they hot? You should have offered a bed to stay in.

    I don't know what the deal is with me...it seems like tornado's follow me around. Last year when I was working in York, there was a few days of tornado's in a row.

    When you think about what we're willing to do to cars to be safe it's fucked up that we still build houses out of sticks.

    It's a surreal experience knowing that it can destroy/kill what ever it wants yet isn't motivated by money, revenge or other means and there isn't a fucking thing you can do about it.

    I didn't see any hurricane straps on the house. If they were there, like they should have been, the damage might have been a lot less.
