Tornado Outbreak of Historic Proportion 4/27/11

In all my years of observing severe weather, both locally and nationally, I have NEVER seen anything like what went on today, and is still going on. Mississippi, Alabama and Georgia and Tennessee have been hit HARD. At one time, there were 40 tornado warnings going on at once. The Weather Channel reported at 10:00pm that over 64 have been confirmed dead already.

Update: Death toll at 178, with128 of those in Alabama. Very sad.

Besides the number of tornadoes, I have never witnessed multiple large violent tornadoes going on at once in such a small part of the country.

Prayers go out to those in the Southeast tonight.

Philadelphia, MS Tornado

Tuscaloosa, AL Tornado

Birmingham, AL Tornado
