Hi All

We're camped just south of Memphis actually in Mississippi at a lovelly new campsite.

Its just after 8pm and I'm sat outside having a beer when a guy from the campsite office starts visiting all the campers as quick as he can on his golfcart.
He told me the doors on the evacuation building are open so please feel free to use the building and bring any pets if you have them. When I asked him why, he informed me there is a Tornado Warning for our area. 10 minutes later its thundering, lightning and raining like crazy. 5 minutes ago our next door neighbour knocked on our door to tell us to be carefull and they're going to the shelter.
Jans now busy sorting out some clothes, wallets, passports and flight tickets just in case and the storms getting worse. :Eeek::Eeek:

See you Maybe :thumb:

Hi Ror,

Get to cover Guys and Lash the RV down.:RollEyes:

Awaiting the Vid with interest so, Jan, get out there and start filming.:Cool:

We were in Busch Gardens and there were tornados dropping all around us.They actually stopped the rides a few times.:Angry::ROFLMAO:That was in the aftermath of a Hurricane.

OK They have them all the time there so I guess they are always ready.:thumb:

All the Best.Stay Safe.

Steve.

Ror,

Always heed tornado warnings and get to cover promptly. If a campground in tornado country doesn't have a shelter, they'll often have brick or breeze block bathrooms; That would be a good place to take shelter.

If you stay in the coach, you might get an unexpected ride.

We've been wandering around the Sierras fishing for almost 2 weeks, and I haven't paid much attention to TV news. So I didn't see how badly Mississippi was hit. This morning I see other states that were hit really hard by tornados in the last couple of days.

Hopefully, they took refuge in a shelter.

I sure hope you folks are right.

Does anyone know for sure they're OK, or you just hoping?

Eagerly awaiting any contact just for reassurance.::bigsmile:

Maybe they didn't have time to take the laptop with them?

It's the last thing you'd think of in that situation.

I asked our forum members if they knew anything about the storms that hit Mississippi a few days ago, and here's a response I received:

"A tornado struck Newton, MS and injured 60+ people. That is a long way from Memphis, MS, though. Memphis, MS is in the northwest corner near Memphis, TN. Did have numerous severe thunderstorms in the region, though."

This is, I think, good news for Ror.
