  1. Its a funnel cloud like the article says. Its not a waterspout. A waterspout only forms at sea or over some body of water.

  2. It’s a message A&B from God to curb your recent wicked ways. Also notcto vote in support of the CCJ.

    • We are talking about tornadoes that were gonna touch the floor of our country were we thy sons and daughters stand ,you are talking about wicked ways we know we were born with sins God forgives us My name is Ryniah Williams, 13 years old I am proud to be Antiguan

  4. I really like it when individuals get together and share thoughts.
    Great site, continue the good work! Its such as you learn my mind!
    You appear to understand a lot about this, such as you wrote
    the ebook in it or something. I think that you just could do with some p.c.

    to force the message house a little bit, but other than that, this is great blog.
    A fantastic read. I will definitely be back. I have been browsing online
    more than 4 hours today, yet I never found any interesting
    article like yours. It’s pretty worth enough for me.
    In my opinion, if all website owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the net will be much
    more useful than ever before.
