    Agree with thoughts and prayers to all affected by the storms. News was reporting 95-100 % of the buildings in the one town was damaged or totally destroyed... WOW.

    So very sad. It will happen this time, every year, the only question is "where"? My heart aches for those affected/devastated.

    Sending up prayers for lives, property can be rebuilt and replaced. Just checked WGN and one dead which seems like a miracle when you hear of the damage and see pictures of all the destruction. I cannot image having to deal with a major lost like this. All my troubles are very small today compared to what these people are dealing with.

    My sentiments also. Even being from Massachusetts doesn't get you off the hook with tornadoes. Being a building official I had the experience a couple years ago working with our department of public safety commissioner and a state inspection team in Monson Ma. for an entire weekend right after the destruction. I have personally never witnessed the total devastation that mother nature can set on people before this event, and I do not want to ever see it again. The families that loose everything in seconds just puts your heart in your throat. We try to not show emotions but you cannot help doing so, we were also told not to talk to anyone, exactly for that one reason, emotions. When that tornado went thru Brimfield (also causing massive destruction) it was 8 miles from my own home, my driveway and yard was covered with insulation and other debris. We were all very lucky especially with only a couple deaths from Springfield to Southbridge ma. Someone was looking out for everyone..

    My heart goes out to all those affected by the destruction.

    Prayers to all who lost family and possesions yesterday.

    Here in Eastern Iowa, it was 78 and very humid yesterday. When that front went through at 5:30 we had dime sized hail and 70 mph gusts. Lots of semis blown over. The worst of the weather went north of us. That was what tracked NE into Northern Illinois.

    My 3 yo learned an new word yesterday. Tornado she pronounces it tomado. Kids...

    Jeff,
    I too am a just retired building official and a FEma disaster inspector. The worst devastation i witnessed was the Northridge earthquake in Los Angelos in 1994. I feel for those in this tornado event and I hope they get treated right by the insurance companies and FEMA. I've seen many times how people in these disasters get screwed by unscrupulous companies and individuals.
