Yes, I hope they haven’t turned the cam off already, either. And I too hope South Bend’s falcon family is safe. We used to have someone named sbwatcher who would give a report to us now and then...we will have to keep checking...

sbwatcher reporting in after a LONG time off the forum:

A confirmed EF-2 tornado hit around 8:40 p.m., destroying half of a day care center, which was fortunately empty at the time. No deaths or injuries have been reported from the tornado.

The tornado was 2-3 mile south-south east of the nest box. At that time of day, the falcons would most likely be well-fed and I surmise that they would have been downtown at the time. If so, they would have experienced a heavy rain and possibly a bit of wind, both of which they are well-equipped to deal with. I was well aware of outdoor conditions at the time of the tornado, and to my knowledge, there was not much wind where we were or anywhere near the nest box area.

I will keep an eye out for the falcons, and maybe I will also be able to post links to tornado video.

I've been checking the cam several times daily here and it never returned since the tornado. Now they have put up a message on the cam that the falcons will return next nesting season. Hope they all made it through the storm and are doing well. :15heartbeat:
