OMC, Tink just pawmailed me and they had to go into the cellar, the sirens are going off right now. Blizzard pulled up the radar and there's a major storm right over them and dopplar is reading a strong cell!

OH MAN! I promise to either post as soon as she pawmails me or she may see this and post after they're okay! Oh gosh, we're so scared.

Please purr for every kitty, parent, child, dog and all animals. This is going to be a bad night.

Oh yikes, Blizzard just had me check the dopplar and it's a bad cell right over them! It's not even quite there yet so I think it may be awhile before we here from them. Rev up those purr motors!!!

They're in the middle of it now!!! However, it looks like the hook echo ( where tornadoes usually are) is south of them, but not by much!!!
Purred by: Lacey (Catster Member)

May 23rd 2011 at 3:16 pm

That stupid thing isn't even fully loading on my page! GRRRR. Doesn't mean anything though Blizz. We've had some bad thunderstorms here in the northeast that didn't have any echo to them. Very damaging. Let's just hope it passes quickly and no one is hurt.
Purred by: Lacey (Catster Member)

May 23rd 2011 at 3:20 pm

She's OKAY!!! She's OKAY!!! They don't even have a basement! They had to go down to the first level which is a bank so it's reinforced which is good. But I guess Skylar and his family are next in the line for the storms. A couple of hours away from them.
Purred by: Simone (Catster Member)

May 23rd 2011 at 3:22 pm

Oh thank catness Lacey! We're so relieved. Thank catness, thank catness, thank catness! Now to keep up the purring for Skylar and his family...

Thank catness they're ok!!! Thankful purrs there, more purrs now for Skyler!!
Purred by: Lacey (Catster Member)

May 23rd 2011 at 3:24 pm

She said they are in Hazelton, about an hour east of her. It is headed right over there. At least that's a fast moving storm. Didn't take long to go by them quickly!
Purred by: Lacey (Catster Member)

May 23rd 2011 at 3:27 pm

There's a little kitty that Guido had mentioned that lives right in Joplin! I hope they're okay. I can't remember his/her page now. I'll try and find it in a bit. Tink also told me about some kitties that live there also from Catster that lost everything. The house collapsed all around them. They are okay but lost everything. The daddy hunkered down and lay on top of the doggies and the mom on the kitties to protect them. Now that's love!
Purred by: Blizzard AKA The Catfather (Catster Member)

May 23rd 2011 at 3:30 pm

It appears the main cluster should pass south of Hazelton!! ( Dang, I's hates when I's knows these places... only like 2-2 1/2 hrs from us!!!
Purred by: Lacey (Catster Member)

May 23rd 2011 at 3:38 pm

Tink said a roof got ripped off somewhere near her. It looks like the worst of it isn't passing directly over Hazelton so that's good. Where are you guys Blizz?
Purred by: Blizzard AKA The Catfather (Catster Member)

May 23rd 2011 at 3:41 pm

Nowhere near THAT...Thank Catness!!! Wees be on de Md, Pa line, bout 10mi Southeast of Gettysburg, 40mi south-southwest of Harrisburg!! ( 40 Mi northwest of Baltimore )

Purred by: Tink the Cat (Catster Member)

May 23rd 2011 at 3:50 pm

EXACTLY!! Danville is an hour north of Harrisburg(Rt 11/15) and an hour due west of Hazleton (I80). I sent a message to Skylar already. We didn't even have storms when they sounded the alarm, because they were picking up spin in Middleburg, which is close!

Purred by: Tink the Cat (Catster Member)

May 23rd 2011 at 3:54 pm

Don't worry, we are SMACK in the middle of town, so there are storm shelters nearby, we always hear the sirens, and even in the middle of the night we will all get herded up by the apt manager to go downstairs, and all of us kitties are notified first. Mom can't sleep through storms anyway.
Purred by: Squeaker/ My Angel (Catster Member)

May 23rd 2011 at 3:54 pm

The storm is RIGHT OVER HAZELTON NOW!!!! ( The Catfather fainted Finney... don't think he can take another nite of this for a while!!)
Purred by: Finnegan (Finney) (Catster Member)

May 23rd 2011 at 3:56 pm

MOL, it's not funny but it is. Poor Blizz. I know, I'm sorry but I just felt you should be warned.

I don't know how many kitties know these furs but we saw on facebook that Edgar, Salem, and Lucy's mommy has said they were missed by any tornadoes (their angel sister Emily Felicity must have been watching over them). They were all locked in the half bathroom together to stay safe but it missed them. Thank catness.

Just saw that Blizz, in the get well purr section. That poor kitty has some disease where fluid constantly builds up in his lungs. We sent him purrs also.

Emily Felicity sounds familiar, we probably do know them. Thank catness they're okay.
Purred by: Simone (Catster Member)

May 23rd 2011 at 4:42 pm

Emily Felicity's catster ID = 696577
They haven't been on catster as much since she went to the bridge, it was very hard on their mommy, but we wanted to let everyone know what we saw on facebook. Their mommy won some of our catnip toys in Vern's auction.

Blizzard...Mom says she was to Gettysburg once when she was little. They went to see alot of the historic stuff. She remembers riding in the car with a portable cassette player they rented that gave a narration while you drove around. She'd like to go back...she says she was too young to understand back then!

Unfortunately there will be a round 2 for them today everyone. I may have to start a NEW diary just for today!
Purred by: Tink the Cat (Catster Member)

May 24th 2011 at 9:49 am

We're expected to have rain this afternoon, but not really storms, so we should be okay, and tomorrow looks CLEAR, sunny, less humid!! Can it BE???
They are evaluating our storm from yesterday, and will let us know later today if it was a tornado, but there's a really good photo someone took that sure looks like it. It wiped out a farm about 8mi away, and there were cattle injuries, but they will all be okay. The good thing about tornadoes here is that there are mountains and rivers that break their paths, so they'd have to follow the highway to get in here, but this one was coming that way. We're grateful that the weather services have improved so much that they can give us longer lead times. Take warnings seriously, many people are hurt & killed because they take them for granted!
Here are some recommendations:
Keep a weather radio & flashlight in one of your carriers.
Open windows, at least one on each side - so your home doesn't implode.
Put each pet in a carrier & take your cell phone
If you don't have a basement, go into the bathroom and close the door - you won't be able to when it gets bad.
If you have bike helmets, put them on.
Be sure to leave your cell phone on, even if it's not working.
STAY SAFE, EFURBUDDY!! Luv, Tink
