Nasty July 8th Kansas storm
 
The last three days have been very rough here in Kansas. Many people in my small town are still without power after an freak storm. Typically our storms travel west to east. This thing traveled in an almost straight line from north to south very quickly. It looked like a very small red cluster on radar and the communities in it's path received very little warning if any at all. Most of the northern communities first hit by the storm began receiving warnings after the storm had already passed. Our small town's only warning came from the emergency director of a city 20 miles north of us just a scant few minutes before the 90+ mile an hour winds hit. Most of the damage occurred with multiple microbursts of incredible power. Many homes were destroyed, large trees toppled, tractor trailers flipped over and windows shattered. Very scary experience. I have spent the last three days picking up broken tree limbs. Thankfully my home and workplace were not damaged. Many of us are counting our blessings.

Here is a video that someone from a small town about 15 miles north of us posted:

Seriously not nice but not bad call them typhoons in Asia & years ago had a level 10 which are very rare. No way would you go outside force 8s getting dodgy for that. The level 10 all the lamp posts were bent right over after & my neighbours car was nearly half a mile away along with loads of others all droped in a great big pile. Under no circumstances open any doors windows in your house & have the internal doors shut to in case one breaks. The sudden change in pressure will strip the house including carpets stud walls everything if its a real storm. About half a dozen houses just ceased to exist as it sucked the walls in on each other due to windows going.
Still about the most awesome thing I saw as heading home was a 747 that had to land in a level 8 (winds 90+) It flew in at a 45 degree angle to the runway & when it landed every single tire burst & it spun off onto the grass like a toy doing a full 270 before the emergency chutes popped. I dont know how the undercarrige did not break.
