    The tornado sirens have already gone off twice here in Derby. There have been reports of tornados on the ground through out Kansas this afternoon and evening. The Wichita/Haysville/Derby area are in the crosshairs right now.

    Stay safe guys. Hopefully I'm the only one that would be trying to strap a sail on a bike and break a land speed record.... :lol:

    Cameron tie those bikes down, and hide in that basement everything will be alright.
    Good luck with all this weather, we have been warned about this all day too and we've not seen anything as of yet.

    It is headed your way! Reports of tornado damage at my work. Our campus is really big and has numerous buildings so I am not sure of the extent. The storm cell that spawned this round is headed for pick and diabolical dork. Hang on tight guys!

    I hope it all dies down so it won't damage Haysville for the swap coming up, and so it doesn't come up and hit us in Lawrence! :shock:

    Why do we live in Kansas? :D
    ....Because storm chasing is too fun.
    ( just kidding, I'm too much of a wimp for that)

    !

    Dodged a bullet here in Benton, Sightings just a few miles east of us. Rained like crazy though. Got all the bikes in the baseent just in case, then remembered the family needed to be there also!!! (just kidding!) Hope all you bros down south are good & everything is ok.

    And KickBack, you are exactly right! We don't even have to chase them, we can watch them from our front porch! I will take my chances with tornados (sp) anyday compared to earthquakes!

    Cameron: Looks like Spirit took a major hit! Hope no one was hurt!

    Re: Fellow Kansans- Batten down the hatches!

    All is ok here Haysville as far as I can tell. I think I can speak for Mitch and Tim also. Talked to Cody in Derby and all is ok there.
    Some of us Ratorodders are here in Haysville and the others in Derby and the tornado went between our 2 towns. I think it hit about 2-3 miles form us. Too close for comfort. I always tell myself what are the odds that we'll get hit a 3rd time. I probably said that after the first time.

    My fingers are crossed there's no human loss or injury.

    Re: Fellow Kansans- Batten down the hatches!

    I was scheduled to work tonight and didn't get a call so I went in to work. I saw tremendous amounts of debris on the roadways. Several buildings at my work were damaged including the plant I work in. I got a little way into the building before I was run off by a manager. I spoke with one of the electricians who was there when the twister hit. He said that the roof was torn off several parts of the building. I guess we will have to wait until daylight to assess the extent of the damage. Luckily there haven't been any reports of fatalities. Lots of people have lost their homes tonight, praying for the best.

    Re: Fellow Kansans- Batten down the hatches!

    Spirit Aerosystems, where garagegoon and I work, has suspended operations indefinitely while they assess the full extent of the damage. The news is reporting damage to all the buildings, six with significant damage and four with major damage.

    Spirit is the biggest employer in the Wichita area with over 12,000 employees, and that is not including the employees of the contracted companies that do the housekeeping, parts deliveries, etc. I am hoping that they can get us up and running quickly. The company has scheduled a press conference for 3:00 this afternoon to give an update on the damage to the facility.
