POSSIBLE F5 - HISTORY IN MAKING

Absolutely sickening. Death tolls rising. Over 700 Tornado reports this month

115 today and counting. You will be reading about this soon in History books.

Tornado in Alabama was possible 1.5 miles wide and an F5… They are saying the entire storm dropped to surface and started spinning.

Look at the highway here. Part 2 Jim Cantore..

The NWS has issued a tornado warning for my area until 10am. My county's emergency management has been put on stay by until further notice. It is currently raining quite heavily here right now with strong winds.

Another look at the monsterous tornado in Tuscaloosa, AL. Thought to be a half-mile wide. The people who took this video were much too close for comfort.

Amazing videos! So scary!

Check this out from Wednesday! ( I live in northeast Tennessee - we had three confirmed tornadoes within a 35 mile radius!)

All the years following weather I've never felt so sick.. The images we're seeing is movie like and I dont recommend anyone looking at them for a long period of time.

My hat goes off for the weather media and those following for holding it together. I know some were on the verge of breakdown and maybe some did.

It's not just one area...it's 16 states that had a Tornado this month. Alabama, Arkansas, FL, GA, Indiana, KY, MD, Mississippi, MO, NC, NY, Ohio, PA, SC, Tennessee, VA

April 27th is the worst outbreak since I been alive.
