The tornado had been on the ground for somewhere around 60 miles. It came within about 300 feet from us but we had a ditch we could have jumped in if it veered over in our direction. I caught heck from my sister and mom after it was gone.
So if I was in your shoes I think I would... No I would be out of there.
Yeah, that thing packs winds like a tornado but that power is not concentrated in the (by comparison) tiny path of a tornado. It's *huge*. I just watched one of the networks and they talked about the levees acting like a cereal bowl when the storm surge hits.
