2. Find shelter and get in it. If you have a helmet of any sort, put it on your head.

3. If you can get in any kind of shelter do it. Otherwise Innermost room of the structure

I'm sending calming thoughts and peace your way.

5. Interior hallway or interior closet, away from windows

Even in tornado alley, that's the best way to survive.

6. People are going outside to try and see it

Hear them yelling at eachother as if it is fun. Its not fun .

7. TAKE COVER

And stay there.

Use common sense, which you obviously have, and you will be o.k..

9. not much you can do tonight, but

someone who had such a traumatic experience should have a couple xanax in the medicine chest.

if you imbibe, have a drink. it is a good drug for anxiety, for all it's downside.
or light one.

is there anyone around who isnt the kind of idiot that stands on their porch watching mother nature bear down on them? someone you can call, preferably someone who has had a similar experience?

15. My Doctor called me.

Talked to me. Told me to take an extra one of my meds and keep talking.
Some of my friends came over. Some of them want me to come stay with them tonight.

14. Better now.

It was a shock to my system.
But all's well now. Friends that know my past have come to check on me. Some are trying to talk me into staying the night with them.
But the meds are taking affect and I'm calming down.
A surprise call from my doctor has helped too.

13. Now that I have my head strait...

Thank you all for commenting.

A tornado warning was issued for Pima and Pinal counties here in SE Arizona.

It has been a few years since I have that scare. My Doctor even called to talk me through it. Have an apartment full of friend here now checking on me.

Was not ready for the sudden reliving of May 22, 2011.

Thanks for being a smart phone away!

18. I had no freaking idea you could get a rain tornado in Az

I have seen the vids of walls of dust and thought that would be it.
I am glad your Dr called you.
I am also glad you reached out.
