What makes this storm report so impressive or exciting that it is of urgent need for sharing on Ontario Storms?

Yeah, or the Memphis supercell on September 25. That was pretty exciting to watch unfold.

Or that stationary low pressure system that has been sitting over the Midwest for almost a week. That's exciting. It's been generating storms and heavy rain all over the Great Lakes region for days.

Yes it has. Speaking of that Supercell that went over northern areas of Memphis and Shelby County. I was watching it with live streaming and it was quite exciting to watch unfold.

Most indeed good sir, most indeed.

Why, I even have some screen shots yes I do. Ho-ho!

One image is of the WREG tower cam as the supercell was crossing the Mississippi(that's with four I's) and the other is a radar shot before the tornado warning was issued for Shelby County.

Pardon the splash that will emanate from my champagne glass after my monocle falls into it.

I was watching it on WREG and there were lowerings at times, looked like an intense storm on radar as well.

If I had a penny for every beaver tail crossing the Mississippi(that's with four S's) in the last two years I'd probably have $0.06. What's up with that, anyway?

They like to confuse the spotters, public, and emergency management. One in particular, back in May I believe, sparked some dramatic tornado frenzy that even made CNN breaking news because it looked like a tornado was going into downtown. Turned out to just be the worlds largest inflow tail.

Oh jolly well! Found it! Hooray, hoorah and pip pip!

Tornado Warning:
At 700 pm CDT...Trailer park officials were tracking a tornado near the trailer park. Doppler radar indicates this tornado is moving southeast at 30 mph. Get out of the trailer and lie flat in a ditch!!

Thats true. At least that will get them back on their feet when FEMA doesnt help out. And they likely dont have insurance.
New county proposal. Any trailer must be sunk into the ground 5feet so during a tornado u can dig urself a mighty fine hole and be protected

I think the whole state is a trailer park.

You know, sometimes tornadoes don't hit trailers. Sometimes they hit your lunch.

Tornado done went and ate it right up!
---

Out in Kansas, tornadoes often hit with sudden devastation, and without warning. In one case, a house was completely whisked away, leaving only the foundation and first floor. A silver-haired farm lady was seen sitting dazed, in a bathtub, the only remaining part of the house left above the floor. The rescue squad rushed to her aid and found her unhurt. She was just sitting there in the tub, talking to herself.
"It was the most amazing thing ... it was the most amazing thing." she kept repeating dazedly.
"What was the most amazing thing, Ma'am?" asked one of the rescuers.
"I was visiting my daughter here, taking a bath, and all I did was pull the plug and dog-gone-it if the whole house didn't suddenly drain away."
