    Post Tornadoes rip through South, killing 50+

    ATKINS, Ark. - Tornadoes across four Southern states tore through homes, ripped the roof off a shopping mall and blew apart warehouses in a rare spasm of violent winter weather that killed at least 17 people and injured dozens more.

    The twisters that slammed Arkansas, Mississippi, Tennessee and Kentucky were part of a line of storms that raged across the nation's midsection at the end of a day of Super Tuesday primaries in several states. Candidates including Hillary Rodham Clinton, Barack Obama and Mike Huckabee even paused their victory speeches to remember the victims.

    More at link, including pics:

    Prayers for all of the victims.

    According to a Fox News report a few minutes ago, there are 22 dead from these tornadoes. Also reported that 51 students from a university in MS (Union?) have been hospitalized.

    Here is another report:

    You're welcome. I want to see the cell phone video of one of the twisters. It sounded large enough to maybe be F3 or F4, but I'd want to see it, first. (Size doesn't guarantee strength, but it's pretty close, I've noticed.)

    I have my annual SKYWARN Severe Weather Spotter training class coming up in a couple of weeks. We are going to have a LOT of footage to view and storms to discuss from this past year, it seems like.

    My heart truly goes out to all the victims of these storms. I will keep them in my thoughts and prayers.

    I have been watching them all afternoon and evening east of here and they were blowing up supercell after supercell. It is horrific the damage they have caused and the lives they have taken and changed in such a brief moment. Again, we were spared the brunt of these.
    "WE SEEK FOR THE TRUTH. WE SEEK JUSTICE.
    THE COURTS REQUIRE IT. THE VICTIMS CRY FOR IT
    AND GOD DEMANDS IT!"

    A quote spray painted on the wall by search
    and rescue workers, Team 5, at the OKC Bombing site 4-19-1995.



    What I post are my opinions only.

    Doesn't surprise me, the way its being described. And to happen on Primary day, when people were possibly out and about, makes it worse, I think. But we'll see if that was a factor in the death toll, or not. I thought I heard on ABC radio that dozens of twisters were reported. That's a major outbreak for February, if so!

    A spectacular fire erupted at a natural gas pumping station northeast of Nashville that authorities said could have been damaged by the storms, and an undetermined number of people were reported dead.

    oh my!!!...i know about the pumping station...i haven't heard about the fatalities, ugh
