During a 7 hour period...starting about 6:00pm last night...30 tornado sightings were reported in Kansas, Missouri, Iowa and Illinois.

Below is a map showing the reported sightings using WunderMap.

Yes, the tornadoes developed very fast and to compound things it was at night. A good example was an F3 that caused destruction for about 7 miles in the town of Oak Grove, Mo (about 30 miles east of Kansas City along I-70). Reportedly almost 500 homes were either damaged or destroyed. Luckily no fatalities were reported.

Scary indeed.  Growing up in Minnesota, tornados were a fall event but can happen anytime, spring to fall.  Only safe place is a basement or bunker, many homes in those areas prone to the events have shelters added within to provide protection.

Yikes! It's not a good time of year to be in tornado alley.

If you have warm weather in the winter you can bet you'll pay for it when the cold pushes back in. It's actually colder in March than February where i live.
