Fine. You win. Whatever. I was wrong.

Sheesh!

It wasn't a contest ... you made a comment that tornadoes are "not all that uncommon". The data you presented indicates otherwise, as does the memories of a lot of us "old timers." Chill. Breathe. It's ok. No offense meant and hopefully none taken.

Im getting an upclose lesson on tornados here in GA. A couple of EF3's hit near here a few weeks back. It's amazing to witness the power of wind and the destruction it can cause. We had a microburst nail a community called Lake George on Saturday night that damaged about 30 or so homes. I got called into work on Sunday morning to help repair the damage it caused. Lightning hit a house and blew out a water meter and blew out a connection at the water main. Me and the NOAA weather scanner are very close friends now! :lol:
Hope you all are well in California!

In September, we had an earthquake here in Ho Chi Minh City. I was living, at the time, on the sixth floor (American seventh floor) of an apartment building. Not having felt one in about a year, it was very freaky. Some of my students called me to let me know they were OK. When I read the news the next morning it said that the big earthquake was a 3.5. One of the teachers told me that day that Vietnam never had an earthquake before. But I read later that one town not too far from here was leveled by one that was 5.0. Why no one else felt it is anyone's guess.
