Storm Clouds at Morning

The golden glow behind these dark clouds is deceptive. At sunrise, storm clouds began moving in prior to a severe weather outbreak around noon. Dallas County was under tornado warnings for the next few hours, and two homes were destroyed in the Summerfield community just a few miles north of our house. Another seven homes received damage as well as an auto body shop.
To watch a video of the Dallas County tornado damage, click here.
Then, locate "Dallas County" on WSFA-TV's video strip.
You can also view the widespread damage in nearby Prattville.

Tornados are tremendous forces that wreck things really fast. We have had a few and fortunately none hit our home.

Nice shades.
Regarding the storms, I hope that your walls are strongly set in the ground.

Beautiful colors, but sort of creepy looking sky.

Well here in the UK we do have sunsets like this, but not the severe weather. I would like to see a tornado, but think I would regret getting what I wished for!
Anyway, great picture.
