I just heard that a tornado was "blowing debris all over the place" inside the Georgia Dome tonight. This was during the Miss St. vs Alabama SEC Tourney. Here is a live feed:

People were freaking out from what I can tell.

ATLANTA -- A severe storm ripped two holes Friday in the side of the Georgia Dome during the Southeastern Conference tournament.

With Mississippi State leading Alabama 64-61 with 2:11 left in overtime, a loud blast was heard inside the dome. A section of the dome's roof was ripped open, dropping debris.

The National Weather Service had issued a tornado warning for the Atlanta area at 9:26 p.m. EDT Radar indicated a storm capable of producing a tornado located about six miles west of Atlanta.

It wasn't immediately known if a tornado struck the 16-year-old building, though a roaring noise was heard inside when the storm struck.

Information from The Associated Press was used in this report.

Wild! You know the people were thinking about terrorism for sure because they said it sounded really loud.

Here is a video on youtube that shows the game broadcast when the tornado hits. It looks to happen around 40 seconds into the video. Fortunately that game was in OT. Imagine if those thousands of people would have been out going to their cars.
