Devastating Tornadoes in Alabama

Hey guys,

Just wanted to fill you in on some new down here in Alabama. We've just been hit by who knows how many tornadoes killing (as we know of right now) 53+ people. Tuscaloosa (west of bham, home of the University of Alabama) was slammed by an F4 tornado, killing 15 and counting. Cullman and Pleasant Grove also took a very hard hit. I know that there are actually a few of us Alabamians on Jemsite, and just wanted to fill in the crew about our situations. We might/might not be off the site for a while as this set of tornadoes was REALLY devastating.
Prayers certainly welcome.

A few images (you can find some videos of the f4 tornado online):

Also at 15th ST



This may have bogged us down, but we're still gonna keep rocking!

I just got hit by the same system, but as it was around 1 am I have no idea what if any damage there is to this little college town.

Glad your safe at least!

Re: Devastating Tornadoes in Alabama

Hope everyone's OK. Y'all got hit hard. I have a ton of friends at University of Alabama, and they said they'd never seen anything like it.

I'm also worrying about the floodwaters about to overtake my home back in Memphis. The Wolf River is supposed to crest tomorrow, so we'll see.

This was a bad one. Just hope we don't have anymore soon. The time around this weekend is always terrible though (it's the same weekend as Music Fest in Memphis every year; last year, tornadoes cancelled a lot of the acts). Everybody stay safe.

Re: Devastating Tornadoes in Alabama

I have power again! Fultondale, Codova, Cullman and all sorts of places were hit...I cant even describe how terrible it is. The death toll is up well above 200 now. I got this from James Spann this morning. It seems like everything is laid to waste...I wont say what i've seen, but its not "jemsite safe" ill put it that way.
