Be safe guys! My family in Worcester County said they had a tornado rip through my home town and pummeled an historic building Publick House.http://www.publickhouse.com/
they heard it go by from their basement. They have no power, hail rains, wind.

OMGvictoria, you okay?

1953 is the last time anything like this has happened.

I'm in Worcester County. We stayed in our basement. Though places near us had some damage and we lost power, thankfully we are alright.

Hope everyone is safe. All we got arounnd my neck of the woods was a downpour and a crazy lightning show!

I had to try and capture it on film, but this vid does it no justice.

Our Generation has had no Great war, no Great Depression. Our war is spiritual. Our depression is our lives.

Publick House is ok, the sign was torn and tossed but the Days Inn behind it is gone. My older sister sent me some pics from her cell phone, I'll try to upload them later.

VeganWannabe, your other post reminded me about Old Sturbridge Village! I hope everything is okay there... that place is awesome.

ETA: thank you to whichever mod fixed the title.

I did that, so you're welcome.

And I had no idea Massachusetts was subject to tornadoes. I also hope everyone there is okay.

Tornados in mass are probably as common as blizzards in LA. The times they are a changin'!

I have to say, watching this outside my window was quite impressive.

I was in class while this was going on. I'm taking class from 6-9 pm over the summer. We were all really scared.
