This one was taken by the weather cam.

I grabbed the tablet and got this one, then I heard the wind coming so we headed for shelter. The power was out before we  got off the porch. The Power Company says all the county will get power back by 6pm today. [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Was that thing rotating? I'm not sure that's a tornado. If it is it's one of the "raggiest" one I've seen.  :?:

No rotation - straight line winds. The strongest winds seemed to have followed the river valley.
