We’re ok. The main reason that we have to respect strong thunderstorms and tornadoes is because our home is surrounded by towering white and yellow pines trees which are over three times the height of the house all of which are close to the house and are heavy enough to come right through the roof if they come over. I love every tree on my property but I also realize that they are a hazard in a strong wind. We keep an emergency bag that has an emergency weather radio, spare batteries, candles and flashlights, and a little supply of durable food and beverages to nibble on. We carry the bag with us along with our cell phones in case one of the trees topples over onto the storm doors and traps us in the cellar. Of course even a medium tornadoe will level a house if you take a direct hit but the cellar would protect us even if that happened and help would be there in a few hours because of our cell phones.
