LAFAYETTE, Tenn. - Residents in five Southern states tried to salvage what they could Wednesday from homes reduced to piles of debris, a day after the deadliest cluster of tornadoes in nearly a decade tore through the region, snapping trees and crumpling homes. At least 48 people were dead.

Oh, gee . . . I sure wish you had added another "s" to that title.

;-)

Thanks for the chuckle . . . I needed one today!

Aside from the tongue-twisting alliteration in the title, the meat of the article is pretty darned sad--I hope folks get on their feet soon.

Thumbs up I hear there are relief trucks with supplies on the way from GA to TN.

It is such a sad day for everyone. I hope everyone's prayers are going out to these people in all 5 states.

I just had to rep John for being back with us, and for his little spelling goof. Butt, it was really funny.

OK, was it John or the newpaper? Somebody get to the bottom of this.

But seriously, those poor people! Those photos are heartbreaking. I hope the relief gets there soon.

Hi, It was a news site that came up with news title and now see it was a mistake.

I thought the spelling was pretty good for a Tennessean. Terrible tragedy for the families that are suffering through these losses. May God watch over them.

Thanks for posting this thread. I keep hearing the news on TV and they tell that over 50 people are dead and hundreds are injured, but they only show where three people are dead. Does anyone know where the people were killed, because I have heard all kinds of stories floating around. I have seen stories from Clinton, AK, Jackson, TN and other areas in Tennessee. Someone said there were people dead in Mississippi. Any information will be welcome. I was so sorry to hear about this. It is tragic. The people on TV seemed to have such a good attitude, realizing that material things can be replaced, but the people are important.
