This is horrible, seems the storm there in the US is really playing up,

I keep hearing on the news today about tornadoes wreaking havoc over the last day or so,

Its thought that the school stadium collapsed and so far there not sure if the dead are teachers or students or both

My thoughts go to the families and friends

This story in just 1 of the latest



news.sky.com...

A child was killed earlier on today in Missouri,


PLEASE US members take care if you are in areas which are being effected,



Students at Enterprise High School were taking cover in the hallways when the twister hit the building.

"We were sitting there in the halls. All of a sudden, I look out the window, the wind started to pick up and the roof starts to come off and the whole building collapsed on everybody," said Chase Baldwin, a student at Enterprise high school.

"A bunch of people were trapped under cinder blocks and stuff, and people had their heads cut open."

The storms next places


Storm system moving east
The Georgia Emergency Management Agency is anticipating high winds, hail and tornadoes, and was arranging conference calls Thursday with county emergency management offices to ensure they were prepared, said agency spokesman Ken Davis.

"They're quite concerned," Davis said. "We're staffing up for a long night tonight. Other than that, there's not a whole lot you can do."

Severe weather is predicted from Illinois to Florida, and residents are being warned to watch for tornadoes and thunderstorms

That's a sad bit of news, and yes, US weather has been mentioned frequently lately. From what I've read (boring scientific papers), we can expect more storms and stronger storms as global warming increases. F5 tornados, once very rare, may be more common in the future unless we can cool the climate back down.

ENTERPRISE, Ala. (AP) -- Apparent tornadoes killed at least 18 people in Alabama on Thursday, including 15 at a high school where students were trapped under a collapsed roof, state officials said.

Two died elsewhere in Enterprise and one in rural Millers Ferry, where a separate apparent twister wrecked mobile homes, Alabama Emergency Management Agency spokeswoman Yasamie Richardson said.

"The number could very well increase as the search effort continues through the night," she said.

Yeah, I made a thread about it in the News forum. It's really sad. I wonder why they didn't close the schools earlier?
