Well, as been my usual thing as of late, I'm turning to the good folks here for help. I live in S.W. Missouri..in between Forsyth and Taneyville to be exact. I am getting mixed messages on Tornados around here. some folks say we get quite a few and others say we don't. I figure Springfeild gets a fair share of them since they are technically on flatter ground than we are. So I am trying to find out how my area fares with the tennacious twisters. Can anybody tell me of a website that shows how often certain areas get hit? Better yet, any first accounts from residents themselves? Sorry, but I lived in Tornado alley in S. Michigan as a child and remember all too well the many that we had each year. Now after living in the southwest for so many years where I didn't have to worry about them (we did get a small one in Vegas the same year that Salt Lake City,UT was hit by a larger one)...I want to be absolutely sure that I am ready if I need to be, when the season comes around.
