A tornado touched down here last night, about a mile and a half from where I live. I was taking my graduate class out for a drink (or they were taking me out rather) in this restaurant in downtown Lawrence that used to be a bank. The bathrooms are in the old vault, so when the sirens went off everyone in the restaurant moved back there. This happened a few times. Noone was killed here, though the tornado took off the roof of an apartment complex and flipped a few cars over.
