    (don't ask me how it posted this thread 3 times, but I PM's mod of this forum and asked them to fix it)
    Did you mean Dyersburg?

    Tennessee has long been considered part of a secondary Tornado alley -- the only twisters I ever experienced were the ones that hit Nashville when I was a kid and again in 1998. Thanks for this, I'm looking into it. No close family in TN anymore, but it's still home.

    This is just terrible. I think they are expecting to find more dead, but I hope not.

    The National Weather Service says it's possible that a tornado went right through downtown Indianapolis.

    Let me tell you........I am in East Tennessee and we had horrid storms starting about 9 pm last night and lasting til about 6 this morning. I can't imagine them being any worse than they were here, but we did not have tornado activity, thankfully. We had several tornado watches through the night, but nothing materialized. Several trees down, stuff blown out of place, some power outages, but definitely not the devastating blow they took to the west.

    The storms were bad here. I kept waiting to hear a freight train. Thankfully I didn't. Prayers to those who were less fortunate.

    Our sirens have been going off all day today even though the weather is clear. I am metro Atlanta. Maybe it is just a test.

    A bit of irony that today is the anniversary of the Super Outbreak in the same general area:

    1974 -- At 2:07pm a tornado touched down near Morris, Illinois. Over the next eighteen hours another 147 twisters would touch down over the eastern third of the United States, comprising the largest known tornado outbreak, dubbed the Super Outbreak. 315 people were killed, 6142 injured, over 27,500 families had some sort of loss, and damage was estimated at $600 million.

    We received these storms as well, but not as bad as most.

    Long Article, yet it tells of the victims. One that is so sad is the gentleman that owns the funeral home lost his son, daugher-in-law and two grandchildren and he tells of how he will be dressing them for their burial.
