Completely Mangled Street Light -- Violent Thunderstorm Result

Completely Mangled Street Light -- Violent Thunderstorm Result

Click to view full size image

A round of very violent storms crossed areas near Dayton Ohio tonight, with possible
large, violent tornadoes. It's been all over the news... here's a snap shot from the
Live Stream that I caught on my local news station. As you can see here, this possible
HPS, or MV lamp got completely mangled.

I unfortunately have no idea what kind this one is. And I missed a chance to capture a pole in the same live stream video
with another HPS or MV street light. That pole snapped. The light unfortunately ended up being the only thing holding up the pole.
Unfortunately that light also did not survive. Ohhhh that's just the beginning. There is much, much more damage, injuries, and
possible fatalities that may have occurred tonight. I won't know more until tomorrow morning.
Those were very organized Supercell Storms that *almost* hit my area. Also, based on radar, a large violent
tornado, along with a smaller tornado, may have hit the same area near me twice from two different Supercell Storms.

Ouch. With how badly this thing is mangled I'd hate to think about how many people had their home's destroyed.

Any machine is a smoke machine if you operate it wrong enough.

Many people got their homes destroyed by these storms. Many businesses as well... some of which
may be familiar businesses to me. I'll keep everyone posted. When I say destroyed, I mean... completely wiped out.
The severe threat apparently will continue until Thursday night, so it's not over for Ohio just yet.

We (Eastern PA) are supposed to get real bad storms today. In fact most of the week I think too. For the first time ever I've seen a moderate to high possibility of tornados and hail. That stuff usually never happens here. This year it has been though.

@Dan The Bulb Man, yep I've seen that as well... Pennsylvania is in the bulls eye for severe weather today, more so than
Ohio, but Ohio might be back in the bulls eye for tomorrow. We're still in the threat today too though. There's
a chance you could also be telling stories about tornadoes in your area, much like me.
Just be safe though, and know when to take shelter. And also, if you hear or see "PDS," (Particularly Dangerous Situation)
there is a possible strong/destructive tornado on the ground!

Thanks I will be careful. I do work lawn/tree and shrub care and am all over the place so I likely wouldn't know if a PDS was active nearby.

You'll still hear the tornado sirens, and Supercell storms typically have a distinctive look to them
around the base cloud. If things are about to get dangerous, chance are you'll know. Especially
if you're working outside.

I think that light is done

@suzukir122:
You may or may not hear them.

@Dan The Bulb Man:
You could consider a small portable NOAA weather radio that will go off for storm warnings (they even now make a version that will only go for those warnings in your particular area).
Obviously a general thunderstorm is pretty easy to recognize...now if you see a 'wall cloud'(youtube it) on the bottom of the storm, then a tornado may be imminent!

Colored Fluorescent's such as F40T12 Red or  Green or Blue are awesome...

Yes... I found out my phone actually does that for severe warnings ECT. Now there was a radar indicated tornado just south of me and more to come later. So my phone will let me know pertinent to my location.

@Dan The Bulb Man:
Perfect! You don't need an extra device around then.

As a general thing storms & tornadoes move southwest to northeast(obviously that's not always the case, but its the 'normal' pattern). Keep a close watch on that one to your south!

@xmaslightguy, I'd also definitely recommend typing in Supercell Storms on youtube as well, although Supercell base clouds
can definitely form in the shape of wall clouds too.
But the classic, really dangerous Supercell Storm base clouds typically look even more organized, and they give off a "UFO stacked plate" shape,
with lightning dancing around it. Those are also typically the very large hail producers, with damaging winds of 80+ per hour. Normally... lol

Keep your phone charged and your eyes to the skies. From what I saw on the news tonight, almost the entire state of Pa. is currently under a tornado watch so definitely WATCH OUT & BE CAREFUL !

@Wide-lite 1000, yep I made it in one piece. I'm alright... but that Supercell had a mind of it's own. It was
moving East, and as it became a Supercell, it started moving South East. Had it curved down more towards the
South, me, my parents, and my family would've taken a direct hit from that EF3 tornado. Also just so everyone knows,
had this tornado been an EF4 or EF5, there would've been fatalities. No questions about it. That's why everyone
survived. I'm just glad things weren't as bad as they could've been. Also, the tornado did hit heavily populated
areas... this tornado was NOT as powerful as the Tuscaloosa Alabama or Moore Oklahoma tornadoes in 2013/2015
