College was for the semester we were all heading home. We didn’t have to worry about doing any homework for eight weeks. Ben and Linda were driving down the highway to their hometown of Dallas, Texas. It was two weeks later when at 10:00 pm they heard on the news that they had a 25 minute warning before they have F-3 hit Texas. They grabbed some pizza, wings, chips and dip and soda and they ran to the storm shelter in their back yard. An F-3 is a somewhat strong tornado it missed Dallas but it stopped about 2 ½ miles from them then the weather man said that there will be about 35 more because the weatherwas good for tornadoes. Over the next week I called up my mom to tell what is happing in Dallas. She told me to be careful. I told her not to worry my sister and I would be okay. We are going to start prepared for the upcoming week by putting wood over my house windows and we will also go and buy a lot of water and canned food and fresh food so we have food for the refrigerator for the coming next week. We will most likely staying in the storm cellar because it has two floors. Each floor has two bedrooms on it, a living room, dining room, kitchen and bathroom. When we were done preparing for the next week I called my girlfriend and ask if she wanted to come down to Texas for the next week she said okay. But I told her that we would be staying in the storm cellar she asks me why because we have the weather tornadoes form was. To have a lot of storms coming and I want some company with she said I thought your sister is staying with you, but her boyfriend is coming. My girlfriend said fine.The first storm came along it was only an f-4 and for six days it was the same thing. When the seventh day came we turn on the news it said we are going to stay it are storm cellars for at least for another week. Because they had a feeling that we were going to have more tornadoes when we looked on the computer Doppler radar we should go to the store. When we got out outside Dallas hadn’t been hit yet when we got there we bought thing by the pounds. When we had an enough food to last us for the coming up week. When everybody was in the storm cellars it was so cold down there I had to turn on the heat. The heater ran on gas it had over 100 gallons of gas in it everything did. Then I heard a very loud noise outside I turn on the TV. To the news tornado warning for Dallas, Texas for the coming up week. That’s when the first tornado. Drops down in the middle of Texas thank god we were on the outside of Dallas I looked outside with my sister and hail about the size of a football. When my sister went outside she got hit by one it was very funny. Then I went outside to go and see if she was okay that’s when she started to yell at me for letting the dog go outside when I knew that a very big storm was coming to town every day was no fun because the storms were getting worse and worsen which was not good at all. They were longer and longer it made me think that god was very mad at the USA. Then the seventh day came it was very sunny out in the distant you could see very dark clouds in the sky it was to more than mile away. So I went back to the storm cellar and told everybody that we had about a half an hour before the storm hit us. We were just getting done with breakfast when I looked outside and at the same time the tornado drop out of the sky. What I meant was a very low pressure of air was making a funnel motion it started out small but as it got closer to the ground it got bigger when it reach the ground was over a mile wide the kind of clouds that I saw were cumulonimbus clouds Dallas had about a 25 minutes warning before it hit us if you wanted to see what the clouds looked like you go on to the web and go to Doppler radar. Were I was staying in tornado alleythe kind of tornado that I was seeing was an f-5 which stands for fujita-peurons that’swhat it stands for. The winds on an f-5 can reach up to 312 mph. When my girlfriend came outside she saw the very dark clouds in the sky. We went back downstairs into the storm cellar. Went in to the bedroom and went back to sleep to wait out the storm. I heard somebody leave I didn’t care.Outside while I was sleeping the storm was going on what I didn’t know was my sister gone out there. People were getting killed when I was sleeping so soundly in my bedroom in the storm cellar. Pieces of grass were going through people like they weren’t there. The tornado was picking up cars and trowing them in to people’s houses a rock about the size of a bullet went through my sister head and then she got tossed up on a tree branch it went through her heart. But she was already dead. The storm was really bad over 2500 people have died and the storm was still going on and they were hoping it end really soon then they heard a really loud noise outside because the tornado was coming straight down there street that’s when the tornado went right through their housethe storm lasted abouttwo hours long. Then we went outside we looked around and saw that everything was flattened around them it was a gross sight not everything like the tree were my sister hung from the branch was sticking from the middle of her chest and half of her head was missing. When I looked around a lot of people were crying.A year laterSome of the house had been rebuild and the tree were my sister was hanging from she was still on it made me cry.
