Tornado Half Mile From My House

A tornado came down half a mile from my house near Austin, Texas, around 5:30 pm on Monday, March 21st. There were also hailstones about an inch and a half wide falling in some parts of Central Texas.

I’d seen the storm warnings from earlier that day so I made sure everyone, including my cat, were inside. Later, my phone buzzed to give me a tornado warning. I wasn’t too nervous.
