      Exactly. He's always "don't be scared, be prepared." But when he switched to saying you can't hide from it...even though he wasn't there in person, his heart was and you could tell he was even terrified for everyone in its path :(

      @Jacob McCoy i know your comment is old but i just came back to this post lol & honestly I agree, it definitely felt like an f5 when it was happening and then seeing the damage afterwards. Not just in Bremen, but Mayfield and all the communities in between, too. Its been a year and its still not rebuilt here yet. We still have the donation center for Bremen operating out of a church and everything. The damage was immeasurable.

    I was in Bowling Green at a rehab clinic when these storms hit. Our counselors and nurses woke us up in the early hours of the morning and directed us to shelter. It took until now to find out that one of our counselors was watching you stream when they told us that Mayfield was gone and we were next. The most surreal experience of my life. Thank you for all that you do, you saved lives that night.

      This is how I woke up on March 3rd 2020 when my town Cookeville TN had an EF4 roll through it. I lived just 2-3 miles outside the main path it took, and somehow slept through the majority of it (I was up late studying and had class early that morning). Got a phone call from my mom screaming trying to find out if I was alive or not. The storm had taken out the cell towers in Nashville and no one had the emergency warnings on our phones, and nobody could reach family on the phone because of it. I still remember walking outside to family pictures in the front yard of people I didn't know, pieces of insulation and debris in trees and in the parking lot. It's something you never forget.

      I can’t imagine waking up like that. The thought alone is almost… *absurd* to think about. An entire town *gone* and that you were probably next. Tornados are easily the most terrifying natural disaster. Although, being from Louisiana, hurricanes are not to be reckoned with either, but even still tornados top the list for me, especially now that we’ve been added into Tornado Alley. I hate that feeling whenever the alarm goes off, so I can’t imagine what it was like for you and others who were so close to it. You have my condolences, and I’m glad you made it out ok.

    Ryan, this was the first video of yours that I had watched. I turned it on well before it struck Mayfield and had intended to just watch it for a couple minutes to see what was going on as I live in central Ohio and wasn't concerned about storms that night. I couldn't turn it off and watched in horror as it went through Mayfield. I'm a firefighter, structural collapse tech and have construction experience. Your broadcast prompted me to pack up and make the 8 hour drive to help at day break. It was like nothing I have ever seen. I met some wonderful people down there and continue to pray for them as they recover and rebuild. I now check out your videos on a regular basis as you have restored faith in your field. Thank you!

    I’m in Bowling Green. This is the night I discovered your channel. We live in a mobile and had gone to stay with my parents who live in a much safer house. The first round fizzled out by the time it got to us. That’s the way it goes most of the time for BG so I decided to go ahead and go to sleep. I figured, as a lot of others did, that the next round wouldn’t be anything bad either. As I lay there trying to get sleepy, I was on TikTok and happened across your live. I watched as this right here happened. I remember you talking about a building that collapsed which turned out to be the candle factory. I shared the live with my mom before I passed out. I ended up getting about 3 hours of sleep total before being woken up by the alarm screaming in my ear that there was a tornado warning in my area.
    My mother stayed up watching you till the warning came in. When my alarm went off, she was in the process of waking up my boys so we could get to our safe place.
    I kept your live on my phone and we had our local station on the tv. When the tv went out, you were still on my phone updating everything. They live just a couple of miles from the news station so when our electricity went out, theirs did to.
    That’s when we heard it. A sound I’ve never heard before. More terrifying than the freight train everyone says they sound like. We all froze, listening as the couple of minutes it took to pass us (ended up being about a mile away from their house but sounded so much closer) seemed to take an hour.
    After it was over, we breathed a sigh of relief and continued watching you and when our weather people came back on as they were outside assessing the damage, we watched them to on their lives.
    Thank you for everything you do. My youngest son (12) is now a weather head ever since that night and watches you all the time. He says he wants to be a meteorologist now ❤️
    We depend on you now more than our own weather people, lol. You do an amazing job helping to save lives and bring awareness to the dangers that severe weather may present.
    I fully believe you helped to save many, many lives during our 12/10 & 12/11 tornado event because when the local news/weather channel gets blown out, you are still there on our mobile devices.

    This storm was the first storm that I tracked from nearly start to finish since Cookeville, TN's EF-4 tornado back in March '20. Watching it in Mayfield and knowing it was in a direct path to my family in Madisonville had me terrified. I would bounce back between Paducah, Louisville, and Nashville trying to get an idea where it was. That is the storm that has pushed me into going back to school for meteorology. That this is what I want to do. Ryan, I'm so glad I found your page. I watch every weather update you post and if you're live, I have you playing. Thank you for all you do. I can't wait to be able to do the same in a few years

      The cookeville tornado touched down in my grandma in law’s backyard in the Double Springs neighborhood. Destroyed her shed and threw her backyard fence across the county. Her neighbor across the street west had no damage. By the time it crossed to the eastern side of the neighborhood it destroyed a house at EF-3 damage

      This was the first storm i tracked all the way too.. From 10pm The 10th ( my birthday ) to the 11th when it finally ended.. I was praying for God to end this storm because of all the lives it was impacting in front of me on radar.. but i kept hearing Judgement of Babylon. The Lord wants to wake people up and sometimes we need events like this to do it.. as sad as they are. We've murdered more children than the entire Holocaust from abortion.. How do we as a country think we are just free from punishment from a Just God.

    I was in Benton Ky watching this while I was working at Walmart. The scariest moment of my life came when the storm came through shacking our air ducts and ceiling. I had watched your stream for almost the duration of my Walmart shift that night. You did an amazing job keeping us up to date on what was going on. Being in Walmart without windows and a view of the outside, you helped me know what was coming thank you. I watched you even before some people knew you did weather with your former line of work, but I much more enjoy listening to your new videos. This storm changed our lives forever

      I wasn't aware of this channel back then but I was at work at Walmart with tornadoes spawning 10 to 15 minutes away in nearby towns.

I live 40 minutes away from the Amazon warehouse in Edwardsville that got hit.

    I was watching your live stream for hours and watching this tornado evolve and seeing mayfield moments away from being absolutely decimated and knowing we were about to witness history-it was one of the most unsettling feelings I have ever felt, watching from my privileged vantage point, with access, and awake while so many were asleep, unknowingly about to be rocked by the sheer force and destruction of this tornado.
    To anyone who knows anyone who was impacted by this tragedy, or to anyone who was personally impacted-my heart goes out to you all.

    It makes my heart pound just watching this... I had no idea a tornado was coming right for us until it was just about here. Had to hide in the bathtub with my 3 year old. It was so surreal looking outside the next day when we finally had enough light to see the damage that had been done. Seriously one of the scariest things I've ever been through in my life. Had I been watching this, I would have been more prepared. I literally turn this channel on every time there's a storm now so I can see what's going on.

      A little like the El Reno tornado, it only got a rating of EF-3 even though it clearly surpassed that, just not in the more populated areas. Plus the El Reno tornado was incredibly unpredictable too. Prayers for the families of all of those who passed due to these awful storms.

    • SirRobbins
      SirRobbins 10 місяців тому

      @Kiitzer many mile wide tornadoes are actually weak. Size doesn't equate strength in tornadoes. There isn't much difference between an EF4 and EF5 but insurance adjusters care a lot about the ratings as many homes in tornado prone areas are adjusted based on construction and what strength a tornado would be to cause certain damage so it's important that it's accurate. Many don't know that ratings have a lot to do with insurance based on construction quality. It also has to do with promoting better building, which clearly isn't doing much as that means more money and runs under-financed people out of communities. I remember Moore 2013 when one of the surveyors stated, brick veneer with wood frame is considered poor construction to them. Only 3 structures in that tornado got EF5 rating.

      @Leaf Are you a meteorologist, sir? if you are not, perhaps you should refrain from judging others as well! Clearly, if you do not have a degree in a certain field of study, you are NOT permitted your opinion! Does this sound fair? LOL We watched a mass of experts turn out to be wrong on our recent pandemic, and experts are regularly wrong, in spite of all their expertise!

    • Blane be fishin
      Blane be fishin 11 місяців тому

      @Kiitzer the wind shear measured on radar is well above the ground. Which is why they can’t base it off that. I agree that tornado was no doubt an ef-5. But the buildings it did wipe clean were poorly constructed. So they had no way of knowing for sure. Scientists have to be 100% sure. They can’t speculate. Had it been at max intensity through the center of mayfield it would have received an ef-5 rating. There were lots of well constructed buildings in that town.

    I lived through a direct hit by this F4 I am 1/2 mile by air to Cambridge shores at KY LAKE. Marshall County Breinsburg....it was the most horrific storm I've ever been in. I've rode out other tornados and hurricanes but this was extremely traumatic for me and my 17 year old son. God saved us that night. Our landscape in far western KY is forever changed for 128 miles of damage. Our local meteorologist on WPSD 6 out of Paducah also said they had never seen a storm like that ever on radar. It tracked from Mayfield to Benton and then to us at KY LAKE...literally unreal and traumatic.

    Seeing this again makes me so sad. I live in Tuscaloosa, Alabama where we were struck by almost F5 (it lacked 10 mph to have been classified that way). Joplin was the same year. Nothing is left after these monsters. You can't survive them. You must hunker down or better yet, go to a strong shelter. It often takes some time to get to safety. And time saves lives. You give us time. I've been telling EVERYONE about your channel. You've been so effective at communicating the danger. Thank you.

    • Jedi Mindtricks
      Jedi Mindtricks Рік тому

      I believe both Tuscaloosa and this tornado were of the same caliber and strenght, they most likely reached EF5 strenght in their lifespan, and both ratings are disputed to this day. As Tuscaloosa tornado did borderline EF5 damage to structures just before it left the town heading to Birmingham area. This tornado slabbed well built, anchor bolted structures, yet it didn't recieve the rating it deserves. So both are in the 'controversial' category just like Rochelle, Mayflower- vilonia etcetera

    Over Christmas, I came down from Illinois to visit my mom in western TN. Our route took us right through Mayfield. On our way down, we had to take a detour around the town but the tree damage was still crazy. I remember seeing a whole tree uprooted and tossed up into the top of another tree.
    On our way back to Illinois, we had the opportunity to drive directly through Mayfield. People often describe a tornado's damage as "looking like a bomb went off" and it's not far from the truth. The shattered apartment complexes, town hall with a section of roof missing, it reminded me of pictures of Stalingrad. And that's not to mention that there were multiple bare slabs right on main street.
    I would also like to point out that while Mayfield was shredded, the communities in Tennessee that were hit aren't getting near enough attention. The communities of Tiptonville and Samburg on Reelfoot Lake were totally destroyed by an earlier tornado from the same Mayfield storm. Dresden, Tennessee was smashed by an EF-2. And while Mayfield got plenty of help from the federal government, Tennessee's governor never bothered to declare a state of emergency so the people impacted in Tennessee never got the help they needed.

I really wish I had found your stream before that night, we might have all had a little more warning. Our local weather completely dropped the ball, we had no warning of this until it was almost on top of us. They were broadcasting but just telling everyone it was a “severe storm” until they lost power, it hit the power substation right next to my house right after they stopped streaming.

    You did such an amazing job through this and all this crazy weather we're getting down here in the south and the east....my heart went out to you when you could see and hear your pain from what you saw happening. It awful to not know how to fix it...I understand that completely. Bit please know you helped SO many, helped them SO much earlier then if they'd waited for other news, changed their life for the better and gave them a fighting chance that they absolutely wouldn't have had. Always remember that because I know everyone that listened and will always remember how you did everything you could, early on, to get people to safety. You make such a difference in our lives, a real difference even above just loving your weather channel and trusting it and enjoying it...but a true difference. Thank you for that. I know it takes a toll on you physically when you're in there for 11 hours or more at a time and several times a day when needed...but it probably also take a toll emotionally. Just know you're appreciated and you make a big difference in our lives!!
    And your family as well...you clearly have a very supportive family and we appreciate them so much as well for helping you help us!! Thanks to all of you!!
    Gosh...I still have goosebumps from this and remembering it live...so awful...but its so amazing that you had been warning everyone about this SO early on and with growing followers we can all be making call and warning loved ones and friends in these areas, which is pretty cool. So, again...thank you!!

      @Bzulu 947 @Bzulu 947 hmmmm, ok, well he mentioned this clip channel as being another one of his channels and has it in his home page along with others of his and a couple chasers...but obviously I could be totally wrong😳 either way, I guess its still what I feel about Ryan's work and all he does. I've left comments on the lives and his regular channel as well expressing similar things....he may never see it...I know he's crazy busy and obviously won't if this isn't his channel...but, just wanted to express how thankful I am, so I also did it here.
      But thanks for trying to let me know what you're thinking :)

I watched the entire live stream and was truly amazed and impressed by your dedication, knowledge and willingness to go above and beyond to save as many lives as you possibly could. God bless and keep up the amazing work Ryan, what you do is so important and so very needed. Now I make sure I catch every notification of yours to make sure I tune in as I have many American friends spread out across the country and with your live stream am able to help keep everyone informed of what’s happening and where by sharing the link.

    I live in KY. I was watching this that night and have since made Ryan Hall a top source for weather information. I honestly feel that he is as about as good as anyone.
    The thunder that this storm made thunder I have ever heard. It was constant rumbling explosion like I have never heard. You could hear it coming miles away in our house even. I was laying in our basement with our two kids and my wife. The power went out and I said to my wife “it’s here”. All we could do is pray that we didn’t take a direct hit. We were very lucky that the path was about 1.5 miles from us. Surveying the damage the next morning was unreal. It’s a night and day I will never forget. It has changed my outlook on tornados forever.

    I happened upon your channel the night of Dec. 10, 2021, while looking for weather information for extreme northwest Tennessee. I'm 74 years old, and I was truly scared that night. I was watching when you were telling people in Mayfield to get in their safe place. The tornadoes that night destroyed Mayfield, and also, Samburg, TN, on Reelfoot Lake. I wish our county and Samburg could have been warned, too. We get our weather coverage from Paducah, KY, and they don't pay much attention to us down here. Thank you for helping people stay safe.

      It’s shocking finding stuff like that on your property after a big tornado. I found a torn up picture of a girl with spongebob in my yard the day after 4/27/11. I wasn’t as far away as your friend was from this tornado though. We had Facebook back then obviously, but I don’t think it was nearly as easy to find people you didn’t know. I know we didn’t have groups yet. I was only 17 back then. I didn’t even know how to react. But I will never forget that and I still wonder all these years later if that girl made it.

    I'm a Meteorologist and I was watching this from The Weather Set at my Television Station in Sunny So. Cal. I couldn't believe what I was seeing. I was in complete awe. I got out my Cellphone, went to UAclips and tried to pull up a Local Television Station to see how they were handling this. I was hoping to get some local news. The first Webcast that I came across was your's and I started watching and I have been watching ever since. I'm sure that a lot of people have read my story of Surviving The Xenia F-5 & being in Tuscaloosa Alabama on April 27th, 2011 Shooting A Movie when that Monster Hit. I'd been a Child Actor & intended to Act for life. But my April 3rd, 1974 experience peeked my interest in Meteorology, thus I Majored in Meteorology. I've Chased Tornadoes & I'm Retiring From Television Weather and I'll Chase during Tornado Season and Produce some Documentaries, then book Acting Jobs through the rest of the year. In L.A. Co. We have had Tornadoes in So. Cal., but small & rare. Forecasting here is more complex than most people think. We have Six Forecast Zones in this County. You can only imagine that isn't all "Sunny and Clear with a High of 80°." But in December, I found Ryan Hall, Y'all and Clicked On to Check It Out! I was impressed. I was still hoping to find some News out of Kentucky. I kept contacting Our News room asking if they heard anything from The Ky. Tornado Outbreak and They were telling me "No, Nothing." I made some Phone Calls and got a little information, but in The Areas hit I wasn't able to Contact Their EMA, Law Enforcement Officials or Television or Radio Stations. I realized that probably there was Widespread Power Outages & Phone Company Computers Were Slammed by Calls from Concerned Family Members. I was desperate for News that I could put on The Air. In L.A. a large portion of The Population is from Somewhere Else, a Portion from Arkansas, W. Tennessee and Kentucky. I wanted to bring them some News From Home. I knew that if I couldn't get through by Phone that They Couldn't either. Finally, The News Room called me and said that They had some News and Video from The Wire Services and They'd put a Package Together for Our 11:00 pm News. But I've made Ryan Hall Y'all my Go To for information about Severe Weather Outbreaks.

It broke my heart to hear those words being used because I knew people had died, didn't even have to look it up to know that. I watched the entirety of the stream for the first time a few weeks after, It is horrifying to watch it churn right through Mayfield. Heartbreaking.

    I live in Denmark and was watching Reed Timmers' stream that night as the quad-state supercell formed and then went to bed probably quite early in the lifespan of the Monette EF4. I woke up, checked Discord and saw someone posted a link to a tweet saying that over 50 were feared dead. I started really tracking tornadoes and TCs in about mid-2019. There are a few times when doing so where you wake up to find a violent tornado went through a populated area or a hurricane exploded into a category 5 right before landfall and your heart just sinks. This was one of them. And then there was also the Bowling Green tornado. Horrible month to end a horrible year.

The ones who have an hour can do things like calling a neighbor, eating a meal, putting on extra layers of clothing.

    I had the opportunity to be traveling from MO to E. TN about 14 days after this event. Drove through the central Land Between the Lakes area, just west of Mayfield, KY. I had completely forgotten about this storm. Wow, just wow, the breadth of destruction from obvious tornadoes passing through the mid-section of Land between the Lakes was incredible to say the least. Crews were out cutting trees to clear the roads. Hey! It was really eerie to be there for Christmas 2021, no one was there, but destruction everywhere. We could not exit the park toward Mayfield since roads were still closed due to tornado damage.
    So much devastation in W. KY, but St. Louis also got hit. Within about 15 mile radius of my place, 7 tornadoes touched down that night. Lives lost both to the west (Wentzville, MO) and east (Amazon facility roof collapse killed workers west of Edwardsville, IL). Downtown St. Louis is a major weather anomaly as severe weather frequently splits to the north and south and I can be the dummy who continues to stand on my balcony filming the approaching bad weather. My weather experience that night:

Almost a year later, there's STILL leftover damage, and you can still see that there are houses that were aboslutely destroyed. It's heartbreaking, and there was a gas station that i've been to many many times and it was unrecognizable.

We helped so many kids out that lost their christmas due to the tornado. I do have some pictures of us going there, It was truly heartbreaking to see everything.

    At 3:30 in the video the tornado was right beside my house, about 200 yards away, I didn't have damage to my home, but all my neighbors on the right side of our road were hit. Later the tornado hit the local airport and I lost my plane, we felt lucky that is all we lost considering what others lost. When the tornado got to Clinton and Cayce Ky, we left , we knew the best thing was just to get out of the way, normally I do not advocate getting in a vehicle while there are tornado's in the area but we had plenty of notice and time with this one. We called family and told them to do the same, thankfully they listen because my daughter in laws home got hit. Folks the pictures do not do justice to the amount of damage.

We took a fair bit of damage from those storms here in Bowling Green and you were definitely a life saver for us not having any other means of knowing the path the storms were taking. We also assisted in mayfield the following week and I’ve never seen anything like it in my 36 years, pictures and videos didn’t do it justice. The bulk of the city looked like it had been bombed, and miles of trees down, damaged homes, etc. definitely a storm that won’t be forgotten by anyone who was in its path.

    Amazing coverage Ryan!! We responded to Dawson Springs from Ohio shortly after the storm hit. The devastation was unbelievable, but the community came together like nothing I've seen before. Kentucky is definitely strong 💪
    We have a story to tell about a discovery made while searching. We attempted to reach numerous news agencies but nobody wanted to cover. The discovery makes this storm seem even more difficult to understand. Everyone that lost someone or something please continue to stay strong! God bless.

    I drove right through the damage in Mayfield on NYE on my way to Nashville. My heart dropped even weeks after everything occurred. Studying storms since I was a kid and seeing this first hand was eye opening. I even saw the small amish farm that was partially destroyed just east of the city.

    This was the night I found your channel. I remember I had been driving around with my daughter looking at Christmas lights. It was an unusually warm night and in the Chicago suburb where we live it got so foggy we had to call it a night early. I'd been looking at weather videos earlier and you came up on the algorithm. Since our weather was so odd that night I tuned in. The horrified concern you had made me realize it was something big. I was on from when the stuff fired up in Arkansas and Missouri.

    I watch you instead of my local news station for bad weather because I know watching you means I'll get an advanced warning if something is heading my way.

    I live near Paris Tn and this night was terrifying. One of the tornados touched down near us and moved north into Ky. We were up most of the night too scared to go to sleep. Watching channels like Ryans. It wasnt until they said we could go to sleep did we finally.

    Even though this is no longer considered a historic quad state tornado, it is now believed to be two tornados at different times that tracked along a similar path, I still appreciate the video. I enjoy seeing these sort of meteorologist breaking things down and giving us more detail than most weather channels provide.
