we do....however yet again this was an event that was in a marginal risk zone which the general public is never going to take seriously and it is just amazing that so many have happened in marginal risk in past year....not bashing, its an observation, it has almost become common that marginal risks are having tornadoes in them lately while enhanced risks are having less of an impact than forecasted....just interesting

Not to get too technical, but it was a slight risk zone. I think everyone took the risk seriously. There were several homes destroyed but no injuries. When the warning was issued, our sheriff's department's chief deputy sent his wife to their son's house which had a basement, and he got into the crawl space beneath their home. The home was severely damaged by the storm but he wasn't injured.

Tonight was just the ninth tornado in Scott County since 1933. The terrain protects us well. It's interesting to note how many tornadoes have impacted the same area, though. Tonight's tornado was almost the exact same route as our last tornado in 2009. Of 9 tornadoes, 4 have happened in the same valley in the Cumberland Mountains that S.R. 63 cuts through between I-75 and Huntsville. Just something about the terrain...

Crawl space???  He's damned lucky.

Thankfully, most of the kids at Pleasant Hill had left for the day.  Here’s a few pictures of the damage to the school.

There are many worse places to seek shelter in a tornado than a crawl space.
