National Weather Service confirms that a Tornado touched down in San Angelo, TX

The feature photo was captured by Jason Hill via his drone when he flew it later on in the day of the Tornado – 18th May.

The National Weather Service (NWS) office (branch) in San Angelo has confirmed that a Tornado struck the city of San Angelo, Texas on Saturday morning.

It has been reported that the Tornado was at least an EF-2.

The assistant Fire Chief of San Angelo reported that the Fire Department of the city conducted at least one rescue in relation to the Tornado after it struck.

At around 4:30am on Saturday, the San Angelo Fire Department was dispatched to a collapsed structure on the campus of the West Texas Boys Ranch – Tankersley.

A young male was trapped beneath the collapsed structure.

Firefighters were able to free the male from the debris of the collapsed structure. The male was taken to a hospital where he was treated for minor injuries.

At least forty people had to be evacuated due to concerns over downed power lines. Those people are being housed at a shelther at the First United Methodist Church of San Angelo.

A resident of San Angelo was first aware of the Tornado when she heard an emergency alert come over her phone. We’re hoping the sirens went off!

The women told KTXS 12 that she hid in the closet with her family and also said that the Tornado sounded like a train. Our question is, did the sirens go off?

A car was thrown into a house in the city, however nobody was injured as a result of the event. Thank goodness.

What Tornado? Sweetheart, the grass needs to be cut


Introducing Theunis Wessels, who is just cutting his grass on a Friday evening.

Normal right! Nothing at all going on at all. Cutting the grass had been on the Canadian’s to-do (chore) list for a while.

So, Wessels decided to cut the grass on Friday – best time to check off the chore – said his wife, Cecilia Wessels in an interview with Buzzfeed.

In the interview with Buzzfeed, Wessels said that she was sleeping when her nine year old daughter woke her up scared…

…What was the little girl scared of? An breathtaking and photogenic Tornado outside the family’s home in Alberta1, Canada.

1: Three Hills, Alberta to be exact.

Wessels said that she looked out the window and saw her husband and this absolutely normal scene – the complete “epitome of this is fine”.

Photo credit: Turf Matters (seems appropriate)

FYI: The family moved from South Africa to Canada almost a decade ago.

Wessels stated that her husband was calm because he attended a seminar led by Tornado Hunters very own, Greg Johnson.

Wessels specified (during the interview) that she actually took the photo to show her parents in South Africa what a Tornado looked like.

However, when she posted the photo to Facebook, with the caption “my beast mowing the lawn with a breeze in his hard”.

Everyone (shockingly – not really) had the same question: “Why is your husband mowing the lawn?”

Whist this (see in video below) is happening…

Wessels suggested that the Tornado was not as close as it appears to be in the photo and was moving away from the house.

In the general public’s eyes, Nope, Nope, Nope. In our eyes, YES! YES! YES. We love absolutely everything about this photo – including the memes.

Astonishing before and after video of the 2013 Oklahoma Tornado

Not particularly a wordy blog! However it’s a worthy read about a worthy video. All that needs to be said is…

…A family takes cover in their storm shelter. Minutes later, this is what the father sees as he comes out of the shelter (see in video below).

The Tornado in the above video was that of the EF5 that struck Moore (inc. Newcastle), Oklahoma on the 20th May 2013…
