So we had a tornado where i live the other nite.there were several storms that had already come through West TN but they all went north of us when finally one more cell began tracking towards my county.First it hit a little town outside of Jackson,hit the interstate, and then came through the middle of north Jackson and kept tracking.

When it came through Jackson i saw it bc i wasnt far from where it was,it was kinda cool bc it was green and all the lightning was green,but it was dark so it was a little scary bc if it wasnt lightining i counldnt see it,lol,but we have tornados from time to time so im used to it.

My nite started out out on the interstate doin search and rescue bc there were big rigs everywhere upside down and cars in trees and it was just a mess.i saved three people who were trapped in thier trucks.then i went into this town that was hit first to help the rest of the depts look for survivors bc it just leveled everything there.there were 2 DOA's in this town,but it was the only two that died from this storm in madison county so that was good bc it couldve been alot worse.

When it got to Jackson it hit a college and collapsed three dorms and several other buildings and went on to go through several neiborhoods.in the process it also destoyed one of our fire stations.

ill elaborate on this a little later,but this is the first chance that ive had to get on my computer since ive been doing rescue and clean up and such since it happened and im tired and im goin to bed for the first time in basically two days...it was just a nite of a mess,and still continuing to be a mess...

I feel your pain man, When a tornado devistated Marmaduke AR about 2 years ago we went for 2 1/2 days straight, I took a couple short naps in the hose bed though
