Heard also that a couple of homes got hit with lightening about the same hour that the tornado hit.

Hey "Nay Sayer", Where were you when all of this happened? I bet you weren't anywhere near where this happened, were you?

The weather service has ways ...




Now, since it was determined to be a tornado, the insurance company will have to pay the claims(s).
