The overnight tornado that tore through Ellis Park, destroyed homes in the Eastbrook Mobile Home Park, and caused thousands of dollars in damage to homes in eastern Vanderburgh County and western Warrick County eight years ago today continues to serve as a stark reminder that we should always be prepared for severe weather no matter what time of day.
Remember about a week ago with the high temperatures was in the upper 60's and the evening lows were somewhere in the vicinity of the mid-to-upper 50's? Hope you enjoyed it, because much colder weather is coming quick.
Weather is a fascinating thing. Anytime it does something out of the ordinary, like dump a couple of inches of rain on one area in a short amount of time causing flash flooding, people like to whip out their cameras (or these days, smartphones) and snap a picture or two. If you're one of those people, we'd like to see your pics!
UPDATE Saturday 6:15 a.m. EST: The number of reported fatalities is at least five, with another 71 injuries caused by what authorities say are a total of 17 tornadoes ripping through the Midwest on Friday.
The devastation in Moore, Oklahoma goes beyond comprehension and the death toll, unfortunately, continues to rise after yesterday's massive tornado that all but leveled the town of Moore. All of us in the Tri-State want to do anything we can to help and the best way to help is by making donations to the American Red Cross by calling 812-471-7200 or online at redcross.org/tristate.
