Those Birmingham tornado pics are beyond belief... It looks like Atlanta is next.

Be safe Austin and Josiah...

Post the pics from Birmingham...

I heard Tuscaloosa was hit hard as well with twisters. I also heard that this may be the biggest 2 day tornado outbreak ever, even besting the 1974 outbreak..

I was counting Tuscaloosa and Birmingham as the same, as they're right together.

It's picking up here now, but this cell isn't supposed to be strong enough to spawn any tornadoes. Just damaging winds and some hail. A friend was just telling me on FB that the next town up the interstate, Ringgold, that's only ~10 miles from my house took a direct hit from a tornado and there's a large amount of damage.

Yeah. Almost all of the strong storms followed the exact same line. The places that got hit the hardest got hit multiple times. It has been crazy. Luckily most of it went North of my area, but it's a little unnerving knowing that Ringgold got hit so hard and they're really just a stone's throw from my house.

Looking at the radar on the Weather Channel, looks like north Georgia is getting pounded....hard.

We've had tornado warnings all evening here in Central Virginia! There have been several twisters just northwest of here. Tomorrow is supposed to be worse.

My sister's family lives just north of Montgomery. She's in Omaha right now doing her USAF Reserve duty, but my Mom is there to take care of my 7-year-old niece and nephew, plus my brother-in-law. I grew up in Tornado Alley, and I don't miss this spring ritual one bit. Those damn things still scare the crap out of me.

Today has been EXTREMELY unusual. We rarely ever get weather like this around here because of the mountains. Severe weather is one thing, but tornadoes?

I hope it has weakened by the time it really gets you you orconn.

Warning means conditions are favorable. Watch means one has been spotted on the ground.

I read that it was the same tornado that hit both. Spent 22 minutes blasting Tuscaloosa to smithereens.

Unless you're just being sarcastic, you have that backwards...

EDIT: Sorry, didn't mean to gang you after Gary already did...
