They issued a PDS alert for Alabama, something they rarely do. It's for large, intense and long-track tornadoes. Yikes, that sounds ominous.

Be safe!

I know exactly what you mean, I am in need of a new roof, so I don't want a tornado, but darn if I can get a couple of roof tiles off I can get that roof I need for free.

I'm right on the path, here in southern GA. the last time a tornado hit my area close enough to take some of the roof tiles away was back in 94 when the flooding was soo bad that coffins were floating down the road.

I was in CA at that time

WMBF news feed twitter

When I first saw this coming over the #SCWX twitter feed I thought it was some kid's idea of a prank, so I chased the link down and it was a legit news feed; I even sourced out the district's facebook pages. I don't think I have ever seen where they've closed schools before a storm other than winter or hurricanes! Somebody correct me if I'm wrong! Pls!

I've now gone from defcon 5 (ok expect some wind) to defcon 3 yeller alert; bugout bag ready; plans A,b,c, and oh Shyt at the ready! (cuz I live in a trailer surrounded by lotsa trees - ya -%$#@ - hoo, we're having fun now ain't we!)

Stay safe ya'll! see ya on the flip side.

In Tallahassee, Fl seems calm at the moment but expecting to hit soon. Schools have already announced closing for tomorrow. Not looking forward to sitting through this tonight. I'm in the middle of nowhere down a dirt path. Lots of trees. I hope we can get out tomorrow.

Update:

The meteorologist in charge for the National Weather Service’s southeast Louisiana office says at least seven tornadoes have hit southeast Louisiana and southwest Mississippi.

Ken Graham says that number includes the one that slammed into a trailer park in Convent, Louisiana, Tuesday and one that killed a person near Purvis, Mississippi.

Graham said teams will be sent out in the morning to document the damage and rate the tornadoes.

Severe weather has been moving through southern Louisiana and Mississippi. At least three people have been killed — two in Louisiana and one in Mississippi.
