A Dark Monster Hits the South

Our last few posts have been regarding severe weather and how to prepare for it. Storms yesterday hit the south harder than it’s been hit in decades. Several have lost their lives (the total is over 200 and climbing). Thankfully, there are several who put into practice the safety tips for when and where to seek shelter and they are alive now because of that.

Tornado approaching Tuscaloosa, AL

This storm started in Mississippi and then traveled through Alabama, even into parts of Georgia. While the most extreme damage was suffered in Alabama, lots of damage occurred in other states and will potentially continue to occur as this storm system heads to the northeast.

Please remember, while these storms can be fascinating and it is tempting to get as close as you can to a tornado to get that video, leave it to the professionals. Professional storm chasers have guidelines that they follow and are expertly trained in tornado behavior, so they know how close they can get and when to seek shelter.

For photos, videos, and more information on these devastating storms, visit the following links to The Weather Channel and The Alabama Weather Blog.
