I have a cousin who lives in Illinois with her husband and 2 girls. They live about 30 miles from Chicago but they called and said they just had heavy rain, hail and winds so they pulled through alright!

I live in the part of the US where we get fires and earthquakes for the most part which I'm used to dealing with. I have lived in many places and I have been through 5 major earthquakes, various fires, terribly high winds, hurricanes, funnel clouds, devastating floods, a tsunami warning etc...I've seen it all but I know with tornadoes if you hear the warning sirens go and get to your basement immediately!

"Your happiness is up to you. Whatever happened in your life to make you who you are up until this point is irrelevant. It is your responsibility now to take control and change your life to be what you want it to be. Energy and persistence conquer all things. Make time, not excuses."

We had a serious wind and a rain storm but no tornados where we were. I think it was trying to die down as it got out our way. Had to call and check on my parents in WI though and they said it was bad. There were a few pretty close to them.

We had some bad rain and scary wind and they have confirmed OH did get hit with 4, but not near where I live. I lived in AL for 3 years so I know what it's like to have to deal with tornados....prayers for those they did hit.

It didn't effect me here in the Southeast but it saddens my heart to see the destruction in the tornado zone.

It looked just horrible on the news. God protect and bless everyone involved.

our area was not hit by the last group. They are very common where I live though. Scary stuff!

BUT - at least you have some warning in most cases, and there is something you can do (go to the basement or an interior room with no windows).

Earthquakes are an entirely different story. Really glad I'm not living in an earthquake zone!

There are no tornadoes where I live. They only occur with any strength/regularity in the middle part of the country, *mostly* in areas that are sparsely populated.

I don't have any friends or family living in the "flyover" states, so it does not affect me at all.

Dances: salsa (standard/LA), casino, rueda de casino, cumbia Colombiana, bachata, mambo, cha-cha-chá, merengue, reggaetón.

Currently learning: Mexican cumbia, danzón, Cuban rumba

Dances to Learn in the future: flamenco, tango Argentino, samba, belly dancing, bhangra, ballroom rumba

I was very blessed to not be a part of the tornados. We did get some bands of rain come through.

I was watching the video that a young man was recording and it was just shocking

Made it to my maintenance weight of 125 pounds.

Even though I have reached goal. I still don't know everything about weight loss.

Obviously in UK we've been seeing the devastation from the US storms on the news. So are you all OK? How were you affected by it all?
