OT - Tornado went 2 miles from our house

Discussion in 'Pond Archive' started by Phyllis and Jim, Apr 20, 2011.

  1. The recent tornados in MS went through Clinton. The national news
    showed one 'to the West of Jackson'. It was a couple of miles from
    our house. We spent some time in the bath tub with cushions over our
    heads...but the wind never went above 40 mph here.

    We wondered what a tornado would do to our pond. We have heard of
    ponds being emptied. Happily, we did not get to see. Has anyone had
    a tornado visit a pond they knew of?

    coming out of those areas that were hit. ~ jan

    A tornado close enough to drain your pond will be the least of your worries. It will
    take your house too. I lived in a tornado alley growing up. Ingrid

  4. I take your point!

    Here is a site that disacusses tornados and fish...and frogs.
