Tornado Warning at Commodity Classic

Chuck Zimmerman

We just got the All Clear on a tornado warning that happened at about 3:45pm. I was in the trade show area when it happened. I certainly hope the tornado that was sighted caused no damage or injuries. We’ve got some severe weather still on the outlook for later today too.

Everyone got herded into a very large and empty basement level ballroom in the area near the trade show. I had to risk the hotel staff wrath to go get my computer out of the media room so I could get this posted. Unfortunately, they said this will probably happen again this evening. We’ve got that to look forward to. Now it’s reception time!

It looks like we have a lot of Midwesterners here as you’ll see in the video clip from the trade show floor. We’re kind of used to this sort of thing.
