Who do we call to find out if this was tornado?
Woke up last night to the sound of my roof and ceilings popping and creaking, with the telltale "freight train" roar. It sounded like it was far enough away that I didn't think we were *in* a tornado, but definitely close to one. My son complained of his ears popping, I'm guessing from the change in pressure?
When I went outside to survey the damage at daylight, the metal roof on our stone house was surprisingly intact, but two trees were damaged. How can I tell if this damage was from straight-line winds or from a twister? Am I supposed to report this to some weather-recording people somewhere?
