Southwest Ohio and Dayton was hit pretty hard with tornadoes....13 this Monday!

I live northwest of Dayton. I had an EF0 and EF2 hit close by...kind of damaging distance.

I am very lucky that my home is still very livable and not too many trees damaged. However, I am need of a new roof on my home and one outbuilding. Many lost their homes...for the lucky, the new look around here is "tarpped roof."

This lists the tornadoes:

F4 Holy Moly! shocked
That's almost off-the-scale!

We had a baby one touch down in 'Jersey
...they're pretty rare here...
..but becoming more frequent in the past few years.

Monday's tornadoes are now up to 15 (hitting at night). One of my close ones was upgraded to an EF3...feel very lucky compared to so many others.

I remember as a child, visiting my dad's family in Alabama..
..there was a narrow rope-type that hit Ensley, and the
weird thing (to me) was that it did extensive damage
to the row of houses on the opposite side of the
street, yet left the houses on the side where
2 of my aunts lived relatively untouched!

I guess I was effected by the random
yet selective nature of "The Beast"

I witnessed the aftermath of the 1989 outbreak within an hour of the
Passaic touchdown.

My mom and I heard it on the radio just when I had to pick Ted up from
work in East Rutherford so I decided to re-route my trip in order see it
first hand.... and boy howdy, did I ever!
It had skipped down the hillside where the neighborhood kids sled down
in the Winter... hit the 20 foot wall of the Rt 21 overpass.. I figured
"WOW! Good thing that wall was there!"

I went under the overpass and took the bridge over the Passaic River
and was caught agog that it had jumped Rt 21 & the river and touched
down again in Riverside Park... DESTROYED several 100+ year old willow
trees I recall thinking, "As if they'd had a hand grenade planted in them!" eek
...then I saw what HAD BEEN the new car dealership! shocked

Seeing those emmense trees twisted and torn apart like bundles of straw
was like getting punched in the gut! I'll never forget it as long as I live! frown

** Rt 21 & the river divides Passaic & Bergen Counties.
