Average amount of Tornadoes in April is 163. We've had 160 so far and we're only half way through April! Southern States got hit big time today. Damage intense and some deaths too.

Gotta love that heat, huh.

Take a look at this amazing still shot of the Water Vapor Image right now. Looks like a Hurricane middle of country.. The loop of it is even more insane seeing it spin counterclockwise.


You can find the loop at bottom of pic here: http://www.weather.gov/sat_tab.php?image=wv

Over 100,000 views in 24hrs. The cars down on the Interstate had to see the Tornado coming on their left...I guess some of them thought they could outrun it but got caught.

Dont ever park under a bridge in a Tornado! Its a wind tunnel under there and winds increase 25%.

Be prepared folks... After 6pm keep an eye in the sky! Flooding and down trees and wires will be biggest threat but you cant rule out lightning and thunder. Cells moving fast so it should be over after midnight but winds wont be till morning

This was a very rare weather event. The outbreak from this system will rival most big outbreaks in the last 50 years.
