Default Tornado damages/pics anyone?

Did anyone get any good pics of the tornados or damages?

I hope not but did anyone receive any damage?

I was going to ask the same thing. Radar indicated about three miles north of me were going to be dealing with some nasty nasty weather, but I didn't have time to drive up and look this morning.

My weather station (certified) recorded rain coming down at 6.5"/hr yesterday. Previous high was 4.7"/hr in 2011. The gutters looked like they were fire hydrants.

We had a small 4 person tent setup in the backyard from the weekend and the damn thing is still there! Even the rain fly that just clips on. Woot

Just saying, I'm not using a weather station you pay $29.99 for at home depot.

I didn't want to be the guy posting up horse power stats for my car acquired using my dash mounted g-tech performance meter.

Please read the handbook so I don't have to explain it to you.

All good by my house. Sounded like it was inline with Linden/Fenton/Holly/Goodrich.

Couple houses in Goodrich got wiped out, sounds like no serious injuries!

Only about 3-4 miles from my dad's place, and 1/2 mile from several good friends.

My mother in-law has some major tree damage. I couldn't see any major damage to the house last night. Only minor stuff. I need to go over today and check it out in daylight. Her neighbors house is wasted. No roof, missing several walls, only 2 of 4 walls left of the garage. No injuries though Things are just things, they can be replaced.
