Cedar Creek Lake

Because Life is Better at the Lake

Cedar Creek Lake Tornados

by

My name is Nicole Sprabary. I am a mom, first and foremost and raise my daughters in the Cedar Creek Lake community. I am a transplant from just Northwest of the Lake and look forward to spending the rest of my life here. I am a freelance writer and blogger, wanting to speak truth and greatness into our community in hopes of creating a ripple of good throughout our small lake towns.




So, Cedar Creek Lake had a tornado yesterday!


This time, the Cedar Creek Country Club took the brute force here around the lake. The tornado that touched down, did so before heading towards Canton to do much more devastation.


Tornado season is upon us! That is for sure.


Many organizations help to monitor situations like this, and others bring awareness, but, the best thing for each of us to do is to prepare a plan before hand for situations like this.

Websites like this, and others, help to keep us up to date as much as possible.
Listening for sirens to seek shelter is always a good option as well.


According to, https://www.ustornadoes.com/2018/05/09/the-most-tornadoes-in-a-calendar-day-by-state/ every state has a day that is more likely then others to have more tornados. September 4th is that date for Texas.


The record held in Texas for most in one day is 9.20.1967 at 66 tornadoes in one day. However, those came during a tropical system; Hurricane Beulah and was out of the ordinary, but still very real.


According to https://www.cdc.gov/features/tornadosafety/index.html the best way to help our situation if we come face to face with one is to:


1. Be prepared


2. Stay aware of weather conditions


3. Know where to shelter


And if you are interested in facts vs. myths,


https://stormaware.mo.gov/tornado-myths/ has a list of those and one that affects us here, is that believing a tornado cannot cross a body of water. That is FALSE! So, Cedar Creek Lake isn’t safe from a Tornado crossing from one end to the other.


I am sure many a folk that have lived here for a lifetime have seen many crossing our lake like Cedar Creek isn’t one of the biggest here in Texas.


Stay safe out there and remember, your life is more important than any possessions in a time like this when your life could be at stake.
