Tornado Warnings

May 24

Today we mostly stayed around the camper due to severe weather reports.  Around 4:30 pm the wind was getting stronger and clouds swirling.  We were already preparing to go to the shelter when the Military Police came through the camp ground and told everyone to go to the shelter.  We were there until around 7:00 pm and we experienced strong winds, hail and heavy rain.  Here are a few pictures.

The shelter is around 16 x 24 reinforced concrete and
suppose to withstand winds up to 400 miles an hour.

My babies were good.  So glad I was able to take them.

Another Boston Terrier camper.  He is an old boy but
oh so sweet.

This is not photographed in black and white, it was
just that dark outside right after the rain and wind had stopped.

Streets flooded but otherwise in great shape.
