    Huntsville, AL Tornado Rips Through County; Curfew Now In Effect (VIDEO)

    Andrew, I hope you got some cover and everyone is ok there. Please let your TechARP family know you're ok! :pray: :pray: :pray:

    Trin, do you have any of his contact numbers or anything?

    And for those who have never been in a midwest storm cell, monsoons don't hold a candle to how scary these are. I've lived in the midwest half of my life (all of my US years previously) prior to moving out to the west coast and have had countless warnings and sirens go off. When shelf clouds close in (the storm cell) that covers the horizon, the sky turns green, hail starts falling, and you see funnel clouds, you will sh*t your pants.

    For those that don't know, last night a 300 mile wide storm cell swept through the south eastern part of the US. Multiple tornados touched down and there is like 200+ dead and counting. I know at least in Alabama, the National Guard has been deployed.

    Yeah, there's even a tornado watch issued for Buffalo last night, and it is really windy here today.

    Ishtim is in Huntsville? :pray: :pray: :pray:

    Yup, I believe he lives there and I know he has a family owned business there as well (Salon with his wife).

    He may not be able to get on line for a bit as power is out in most of the area.

    I hope he is ok. :pray:

    Maybe the connections are still down after the tornado...I've done a trace to an IP address from that area and I've got only timed out responses.
    What is his full name?

    Thanks ARP family! :hug:

    We are OK... Been without power since last Wednesday evening when all this started. Power back on at home now but not at work. There are a lot of families less fortunate though, so we have been volunteering help to neighbors and the community with chain saws, 4x4 trucks etc. It is a really odd feeling to be without the things we have everyday, A/C, refrigerators, available petrol, lights, etc... We are so lucky. The scary part is that the month of May is usually the worst for tornadoes. :doh:

    Phew!! Glad to see that you and your family are okay, Ishtim!! :hug: :hug:

    I really hope the worst is over. The weather has changed so much recently (even over here in Malaysia) that May may end up much milder than expected. :pray: :pray:
