    AL - Christmas Day tornado hits five areas in Mobile

    Apparent tornado hits five areas in Mobile, from Tillman's Corner to medical district (al.com)
    MOBILE, Alabama -- An apparent tornado has touched down in five areas of Mobile, according to the Mobile County Emergency Management Agency.
    That is:

    Exit 15 of Interstate 10, which is Tillman's Corner.
    Brookley Field
    The Loop (Airport Blvd and Government Street).
    Dauphin Street and Rigby
    Spring Hill Avenue, at the hospitals

    "There have been no reports of fatalities or injuries at this time," said EMA Director Ronnie Adair.

    MOBILE, Alabama -- There are "damages all over Mobile right now," according to an official with the Mobile County Emergency Management Agency.

    An apparent tornado has touched down, and calls are coming in from Halls Mill, Spring Hill and downtown, a dispatcher just told the Press-Register and al.com.

    Unlike the EF-1 tornado that hit parts of Mobile Thursday, there have been reports of injuries with this one, she said.

    Trees are down, power is out in some places, and "some houses are down, too," she said.

    OMG, I always heard that when it got cold that tornadoes couldn't form. It just seems to me since the oil spill the weather has been really strange. I'm watching TWC and they showed the Jet Stream and it flows along the midwest and then shoots around the south and heads north, am I making sense here? Anyway it seems to anything to avoid the gulf.
    It's almost been a year since we did our last show.Jay Bush my partner has been auditioning for the show Shark Tank and so this has put the show on hold. If he gets on Shark Tank, we will be terribly delayed. Good luck Jay. Either way we will one day continue the show and have the coolest global independent radio station out there. This is just a small video we did with one of our artists.Waiting for One and their tune 35 years. Check it out.

    Those were some heavy duty power flashes. For every one of those hundreds of people lost power. Looks about an F-2. Maybe F-3 in certain areas. Oh no TWC is reporting more outbreaks in Mobile County. Geez what is going on tornadoes and blizzards oh my.

    This appears to be mostly business areas and less residential areas thank goodness. I live 40 minutes from Mobile and my daughter lives in Mobile County. She was near Springhill at her in-laws earlier during one of these. They had no damages though. We also had warnings all day here in South East MS and the tornado sirens sent us running to the hall on several occasions. There was a tornado that touched down in Greene Co, MS, North of us, but Im not sure of damages yet.
