We where driving home on 119 and a tree hit our truck. We thought we where dead.

The Animal Shelter had minor damage but due to a broken window/water we lost all our adult dog food, a lot of kitty litter and all of our doggie treats. All the babies are traumatized.

My mother was driving home from Johnson city and had to pull over twice and take cover..

So far only one county had a confirmed toronado.

We have had these kind of winds before. I remember when I worked on the hill beside Hall High School that I was looking out the window and saw the trees almost hit the ground they were so bent over and I could see the path of the wind and it was coming right toward the office. I ran to the back of the building it scared me so bad but it just kept on going right over the top of the building and I came back out. It hasn't been a year or so and high winds blew down billboards and traffic lights on the bypass. Remember it was about then that Mr K made Josie stop putting pictures of accidents on the forum until the news was out, and family had been notified? These are a couple of many that I have seen through the years but I have never seen a tornado or anything kin to one, just high winds that got caught between the mountains, and to me that is enough.

My husband and daughter got caught in one quite a few years ago and he had to pull the car alone side a stone building as close as he could get because of wind and debris flying in the wind. He figured if they got near the building it would be some protection. It worked pretty good because nothing big hit them and it only lasted maybe five minutes. Scared him to Fluke and that ain't easy to do either. Nature can bring a lot of us to our knees when we realize the damage one can do if they can control it and we know someone who can.

Campee, as for funding I have no clue, I've not talked to the ACO. But this is why I'm up so late trying to get the word out to get on donations. I'm devastated cause we lost all our treats. It might be trivial to most, but even the smallest comfort to these animals while they in our care means the most. A lot of food and treats comes for donations, after people have donated I hated to beg. Thank you Campee for your concern!

I suppose what our grandmothers told us is true. The mountians do protect us from toronado's. If you notice the two big wind stoms we have had over the past few years followed the same path up the bypass. I suppose that's because it's the widest open area in the county.

I remember last year, Big Lots tried to donate all kinds of dog treats and food.. called several times for them to come and pick them up but no one ever did.

To my knowledge there has never been a tornado touch ground in Harlan County. I know there have been sightings of funnel clouds and high winds but the funnel's do not reach the ground, and from my understanding it is because the weather conditions change because of the mountains. I read an article on the weather conditions for tunnel's to form and before they reach the ground they dissipate here. I don't understand the particulars, nor am I saying it can't happen but I am saying in my life time I don't know of one happening.

I have no clue about, I'll ask about it, cause I don't remember anyone saying anything about it. This is not last year, this is now, and I know we are in need..
