Tornado Alley


Well-Known Member
Someone had asked about Tornado Alley and I couldn't find where it was posted. Anyway it's getting close to that time again (March) so I thought I would share this picture of the area it affects. :eek:

I hope you are able to see the attachment.

My Geography is shocking, for years I was wondering why people would live in a place called Tornado Alley! It wasn't until I saw a map that I realised it so BIG. it looks like a quarter of the whole country. I hope its not too bad this year.

Me too! Suprisingly enough most homes in the Dallas-Forth Worth area do not have basements or tornado cellers. We are told to get into a closet or get in a bathtub and cover up with a mattress.
We have a queen pillow top and I can just see myself trying to lug that thing over to the bath ???
I'll take the closet!

You can never tell about tornadoes. They had to delay the Daytona 500 in Florida due to a tornado watch.
