    Does anyone know why Chicago Center has control of Grissom Approach airspace at the moment?

    Kokomo in the area had a tornado flatten a Starbucks from what I heard. Probably related.

    That was earlier this afternoon. Two additional tornados in the Kokomo area just passed through. Saw a report that one was a mile wide wedge. Appears to be dissipating now.

    Several Tornados in the area this afternoon, including one that was bearing down on Grissom, and missed it by only a couple of miles. Center probably took over when the GUS controllers got the hell out of there.
