Do we have any jellies who were in the tornados' paths today?

Parts of Kentucky and surrounds were struck with utter devastation. Heartland jellies, are you okay?

I went to visit friends in Kentucky for the weekend. They woke me up at 4a.m. Saturday morning to get to their basement. The tornados missed us but it was scary.

A few towns in Missouri got hit but not near as bad as other states. Very sad.

Glad you’re okay, @KNOWITALL, and you too, @chyna. What a time to be visiting!

Who else of our number might have been affected?

I saw some of the drone videos. It looks awful. How do people recover from that?
And the path was 225 miles long!

I lost my barn 3 years ago and caused all sorts of hardship. Nobody was hurt, There was no damage to my home. I never lost power or services. I only lost some barn things.
That was nothing compared to what these people are going through. I can’t imagine…

My mom was in a tornado a few years ago When The rest of us went to the south part of Colorado to see some friends. Meanwhile my mom was home with our dog and a storm came and had a tornado had formed a few blocks away from our house. The tornado didn’t hit our house but it was scary.

A relative’s home just had their roof torn off and the garage flattened. This is 3 days later than when this question was originally posted.

@snowberry Are the relatives okay?

Yes, everyone is fine. Thank you.

I blush to say I misspelled tornadoes. When I was learning to spell, the added e was the rule (with some exceptions, of course, like pianos). Since then, a lot of words have come into common use that end in o but keep their plurals as in their language of origin—without an e. I should have put one in here, though. So please overlook my bad example. Sorry.

@Jeruba I looked it up after I saw this question. The definition provided by Google says the plural is correct with or without the e. However, I also learned to spell it with an e.

Yes, I’ve since looked it up, too, @Hawaii_Jake, and thanks, but “alternate spelling” isn’t much of a consolation. At least I probably won’t forget again.
