Re: Preppers in every state east of the Rockies -- what to do about storms when TSHTF?
Currently I live with my wife and 3 girls in Florida. As long as we get live weather updates, we know when to bunker down for a hurricane or tornado. But what do we do when the lights go out when there's nobody running the NOAA or SPC at the government office? How will we know when a storm is coming?

What about you preppers in Louisiana, Tennessee, Alabama, Georgia, South Carolina, Virginia, Texas, Kansas, Kentucky? How do you know when a tornado is coming without the NOAA warning you? Are you worried?

My family has a bugout (really a vacation home) in Idaho. I know realistically in an actual SHTF situation we'll never make it out there in time so we're looking to buy a property in Kentucky. But my wife is worried about storms.

Any suggestions to calm her?

Texas here. Get as big a generator as you can afford, a couple of pallets of water, and throw down a secure bunker underground. Don’t need NOAA, you can see the storms comin 30 miles away.

Tell her you want her to become an outdoorswoman, and throw her makeup away. Take her hunting and fishing. Plant a garden

You will grow much closer, and she seeing how well you have provided for you both in times of dire need will make her swollen with hot mad desire for her man

Re: Preppers in every state east of the Rockies -- what to do about storms when TSHTF?
You have to just feel the weather. Pay attention to it. There are palpable things before tornadoes unless you're in the midst of a serious thunderstorm as well.

Hail usually precedes tornadic activity. Putting your ear to a window pane and hearing what sounds like a train is a good indicator a tornado is near. Dogs are fantastic prognosticators.

For hurricanes, it's really evident in the sky that they are coming.

We live in tornado alley. Lived in a mobile with no shelter for several years, and that got pretty twitchy 3 times.

It's really not that difficult. Tbh, wild fires in a shtf scenario worry me more. But thieves and murderers concern me more than wild fires.

Do what you feel really led to do. You have to get quiet and calm to know what that is.

peace
 Quoting: Fluffy Pancakes


Wow! I couldn't imagine living in a mobile home in tornado alley with no place to go! Ok but the main thing is you survived! What kind of winds did you experience?

As far as thieves, murderers, we're looking for a place with good neighbors. Plus both my wife and I took tactical training with live ammunition. It was intense. My wife is as good as me when it comes to long range sniper and even my girls can use a gun if need be. I think community is important in defending your family!
 Quoting: The Deplorable Nicomachus


Between 90 and 100 mph straight line winds and who knows on the nearby tornadic activity. At least 70mph.

Definitely would have preferred to have a shelter. When we started building out house and it was dried in we would come into the lower level and camp out when it was twitchy at night.

My advice is to learn to feel it, and that green sky and heavy feel to the air with a certain ominous stillness is a fantastic indicator. But the biggest tell has been hail for us.

If you go for KY,MO,TN,AR, simply make it a priority to get a storm cellar. If you can't dig a pretty deep ditch and don't be afraid of getting muddy, wet and seriously scared. Lol.

Once in a great while they happen suddenly, but usually the conditions give a long enough tell before they occur.

Seriously? How do you think your ancestors knew?
I would think anyone who lives in Hurricane prone areas would be able to recognize the signs in the clouds by now. They are very easy to spot. Hell, I'm over 500 miles from the coast but if one drifts this way I can see the cloud bands and recognize them for what they are.

Tornados? You are just shit out of luck. Just hunker down when the hail starts or the winds get wild. It's all you can do anyway even with a few minutes of alert.

Tornado updraft pulling grass, pollen, leaves, etc. off the ground. Or at least that's what I've been told.

For OP, doesn't apply at night. The green might be there but you ain't gonna see it.

You really need a basement. Or, get a root cellar/storm shelter in the ground. There are companies that have drop-in-the-ground ready storm shelters that can be installed on your property.

Learn to pay attention to the sky, and the humidity. Right now start watching different weather channels either on TV or on internet. Watch how weather cold fronts from the north collide into the weather coming up out of the gulf.

I lived through the terrible tornadoes in April 1974. The weather had been cold, then a warm front comes through...the air smells different and the humidity gets up. It might be windy, at first, then it gets calm, then the wind will pick up again. Now, there are days when it 'feels' like tornado weather.

Get a weather radio, and, as I previously stated you will need either a partial basement or a dug out root cellar type of shelter.

There will be no bugging out. We will all have to shelter in place.

1. The Weather Channel, Local News, and others will flash tornado warnings and watches on the ticker. Download their apps to your cell phone, which will also alert you if it happens.

2. If you are in a tornado prone area, usually the town will have a siren system. If you are not too far out of town, you will hear it.

3. Get to the center and lowest level of your house. Stay away from windows, etc.

Here in Oklahoma, just gotta pay attention to the weather.
What I usually do is go outside and stay vigilant for the signs.
For example, on May 22, 2019, I went out on the porch.

I believe one of the first things my friends did was build a reinforced basement deep in the ground. We visited a while back before they got things dried in. Looked ok but my wife is not convinced.

Yeah at this point I should just build a bunker and then everyone will be happy.

The best way to prep for stormy weather of any type is to turn on your salt lamps and glue negative ions disks to fans.

Storms are "ion sandwiches." Salt lamps and ion disks - especially when on fans at high speed - generate enough ions to calm the storm some and enough to keep roofs in place, etc.

A friend of mine had salt lamps in every room of her house except one during Hurricane Michael. All were dry except the one room that didn't have a slat lamp.

I used a fan with disks on it. My entire block keep their thin metal roofs. It was on Mack Lewis Drive in Panama City.

Re: Preppers in every state east of the Rockies -- what to do about storms when TSHTF?
Currently I live with my wife and 3 girls in Florida. As long as we get live weather updates, we know when to bunker down for a hurricane or tornado. But what do we do when the lights go out when there's nobody running the NOAA or SPC at the government office? How will we know when a storm is coming?

What about you preppers in Louisiana, Tennessee, Alabama, Georgia, South Carolina, Virginia, Texas, Kansas, Kentucky? How do you know when a tornado is coming without the NOAA warning you? Are you worried?

My family has a bugout (really a vacation home) in Idaho. I know realistically in an actual SHTF situation we'll never make it out there in time so we're looking to buy a property in Kentucky. But my wife is worried about storms.

Any suggestions to calm her?

The best way to prep for stormy weather of any type is to turn on your salt lamps and glue negative ions disks to fans.

Storms are "ion sandwiches." Salt lamps and ion disks - especially when on fans at high speed - generate enough ions to calm the storm some and enough to keep roofs in place, etc.

My friend also had a crystal room in her cottage behind her home. Even the nick nacks were spared. Every other room was destroyed.

--------------------

This will cost you time & vigilance.

Keep an eye on the sky...if it's green or yellow, take shelter...Dark clouds? Take shelter.

This will require more "wasted time" in your basement...but better to be safe than sorry.

So keep something productive to do in your basement or shelter.

Also be ready to RUN down there without notice...if it sounds like a train is coming right towards you...RUN to the shelter.

Interesting. Unfortunately neither I nor my wife have such a built in barometer. We have a digital weather station but by the time it indicates a storm is approaching, it's already too late.

Imagine living in Fla and not being able to feel temperature, pressure, and humidity.

I didn't say that but a fast approaching tornado can't be detected so easily.
 Quoting: The Deplorable Nicomachus


You can tell. Even in Florida.

You can see storm clouds approaching, and yes, the clouds LOOK GREEN, rather than greyish.

Eeery looking.

I have one cat who is horrible when the pressure is dropping. I always know a storm is coming, even if it's still clear outside. He meows and nudges me and wants to be held. He's the best barometer! I didn't realize that was what was going on for the longest time. Now I trust his "moods."
