    I don't do signatures. Blondes, brunettes, and red heads are a different story.

    The tornado that hit Tuscaloosa was an absolute monster.

    the weather channel has some better footage (first video is the same as above, but edit to cut time)

    Incredible Tuscaloosa tornado

    Re: Massive storms

    After watching these videos it's easy to see why so many died. You have no chance against a tornado that size. That's ridiculous how big and powerful the Tuscaloosa one is.

    Re: Massive storms

    Why are so many more people killed by these storms in the south than in the midwest? Are we better prepared in the midwest? Either way, it's bad stuff. Thoughts and Prayers go out to everyone affected!

    A lot of homes in the South do not have basements. Visibility is also an issue in the South, lots of trees that obscure the horizon. Although not the situation today, early season tornadoes in the South often occur after dark or are wrapped in rain making them difficult to recognize.

    Okay, that's kind of what I was thinking. Thanks

    Re: Massive storms

    What vortex said is absolutely correct.

    Many people were killed in this outbreak because many of these tornadoes were strong/violent and they moved through heavily populated areas. The population density in the midwest/plains is comparatively much less in most places.
