Thanks for clarifying, it was making the rounds on Fakebook with claims it was a twister from Alabama.

One of the most destructive tornado outbreaks for early March raked across the Ohio Valley and the South Friday, March 2 into early Saturday, March 3.

According to our Tornado Expert Dr. Greg Forbes, the preliminary tornado count for this outbreak was 74 as of Saturday evening. This number will likely change in the days ahead as more storm surveys are completed.

If the final number of tornadoes equals or exceeds 74, this outbreak would be the largest on record for the month of March. The current largest March outbreak had 74 tornadoes on March 11-13, 2006.



The tornado that caused widespread destruction in Henryville, Ind. has been rated an EF4. In Kentucky, the tornado that struck West Liberty has been rated an EF3.

In addition to the tornado reports, there were more than 400 reports of large hail and just under 300 damaging wind reports.



The 10-year average U.S. tornado count for the entire month of March is only 87 tornadoes! The record for any entire month of March is 180 tornadoes set in 1976.


I pray Friday's outbreak is not a foretelling of the spring to come.


As of this writing, at least 37 deaths in Indiana, Kentucky, Ohio, Alabama, and Georgia are blamed on the storms.

Everyone stay safe...this spring is shaping up to be a long, scary ride.
And those storm cellars sound like a really good idea. Thanks all.

This sweet little girl is in critical condition after Friday's tornadoes that killed her entire family.



Sole family survivor Angel remains in critical condition




She was found in a field near her Southern Indiana home, the sole survivor of a tornado that ripped through her family’s house Friday, killing her parents and two siblings. Now, 14-month-old Angel Babcock clings to life in Kosair Children’s Hospital in Louisville.

These volcanic plumes can cause atmospheric temperatures to rise. Watch the video i put on here and see. watch the whole thing thru. These plumes vented out on march 1st 2012 and on march 2nd 2012 is when the big storm started to occur. Watch all 4 vent plumes at different times and see for yourself. I myself am going to be watching this in the future. Seems to heat up the atmosphere and a day later a big storm hits. I find this quite convincing. here it is again. youtu.be... You have to watch the whole thing and see the plumes and he points them out for you to see. I have no doubt that this is what caused the tornado outbreak that wreaked havoc on the east of U.S.A.
don't bother commenting if you have not seen the video.


Hi, thanks for the vid., did watch it and from what I gathered Dutchsinse was making a theoretical connection between what he considered geologic plume releases from around the Hot Springs area (possibly shown in the vid) with an earthquake that happened in the approx. vicinity (fault area) and not long after timewise. IF these were indeed geologic plumes/releases of gas etc. then yes perhaps a connection is indeed plausible.(Also interesting the possible geologic plumes seem to be near the fracking areas in both Ark and OK.?)

But I *didn't* see though anywhere in the vid. that he tried to make any connection between the 'atmospehere' being 'heated' *by* these geologic releases and the severe weather that occurred later, as being 'cause and effect' and I would have to wonder the validty of that as well.

Now IF "haarp-like" energy though was being directed/focused into the area from a variety of heaters then it might well explain BOTH the geologic activity and the severe weather activity, as *both* being effects of this potential manipulation.

2 tornados confirmed in Tennessee, no fatalities reported




CHEATHAM CO., Tenn. -
The Nashville Weather Service confirmed on Saturday that two tornados touched down in Tennessee on Friday.

The first, an EF-1 tornado, touched down in southern Cheatham County late Friday afternoon.

The tornado struck just before 4 p.m. along Mt. Pleasant Road just south of Kingston Springs.

Officials told Nashville's News 2 the nearly one mile damage of the path of the storm contained snapped and uprooted trees, a destroyed barn and several homes with minor roof damage.

The roof of the South Cheatham Public Library was heavily damaged and the storm left behind damaged computers and soggy books.




According to the National Weather Service the maximum path of the tornado that ripped through Cheatham County was nearly 100 yards and had winds up to 90 miles-per-hour.

Officials said other parts of the county sustained damages due to straight line winds.

In Jackson County, Tennessee an EF-2 tornado damaged dozens of homes as it swept through the small community of Dodson Branch located about 90 east miles of Nashville.

The tornado hit the community just before 5:30 p.m. and had winds up to 125 miles-per-hour.

Eric Vanatta told Nashville's News 2 his father's home was heavily damaged in the storm and his uncle's home was destroyed.

"You see it in movies and you see it on TV and you know there's power there, but then you actually see it happen it gives you a whole different perspective," Vanatta said.

At least 65 homes were destroyed.

No fatalities were reported.

I won't call you a "religious nut" as I have too much respect for people's religious beliefs.

However, I would say that you've not paid attention to the news or history. the US has had plenty of natural disasters that have taken their toll on us:

Sometimes it does seem that this central-southern portion (mississippi river valley) of America has been under the gun for years now. I am not sure why. If it's not tornados then it's earthquakes.
The best way to cope with anything that comes our way, is to become more involved in your community. Get to know people in high and low places. With all these natural disasters, there are plenty of volunteer opportunities out there waiting for your help and expertise. As those tornados came through, there were still people who are homeless, living under a bridge someplace, there were still little kids with no food in thier fridge. Get to know your city officials. keep your friends close and your enemies well.... you know the drill.
The more familiar you are with others in your community, the better your chances are of coping with problems you are faced with in your surroundings. It will take everyone's help to bring us back from any disaster.

My religous and other beliefs personally tell me that humanity has had to suffer plenty of both natural and manmade disasters for quite a long time. The trick has always been to try and be able to discern which was which.

I'm convinced as technology continues to move forward and especially 'steath' and weather mod. technology, that as it does it is going to become more of an effort to distinguish the natural from the synthethic and altered/enhanced.

Don't know where in the World you are Infantryguy, but I hope your girlfriend is ok.
OH Nashville, TN One of the best cities in America.
Take some R&R asap and take a stroll down Broadway street.

All technology can be used for Good or for Evil. This same technology can bring rain and vegetation to the deserts of the World. There are still "white hats" among us. Keep focused on the good.

I haven't been on here since all this happened but I live less than 10 minutes from henryville. It was a pretty crazy day. I will give the local weather guys credit. They were warning about severe weather for a few days leading up to it.

My daughter goes to school in pekin. Another town that was hit. The school was not in the path of the tornado, but they held the students until almost 7 o clock that night. It was a scary time. Cell phones weren't really working and it was hard to get info about where all the damage had occurred. It is refreshing to see all the surrounding communities banding together to help in any way possible.

Where are they coming from?

Where is all this atmospheric energy being generated?

HAARP is looking prime as a suspect...it really is.


Greetings:

There are far too many co-incidences for our feeling of "nothing to see here."

In addition to the "plume vid" - which, by itself - scares the hell out of us as there seems to be a direct correlation to upcoming earthquakes, add this one to the mix:

Dutch gets another one right.

Now that link was very very informative, thanks, I tend to think Dutchsinse is absolutely on the right track in way he describes the manipulation of the weather

Too, I found an interesting comment there right along the lines of what I was thinking in my last reply that might be a potenial explaination of the alleged 'volcanic plumes'.

Partial quote from your link:


Weather manipulation may backfire with increased internal earth heating thus increased Volcanic activity

Oh good lord........


I wonder how many years of actual radar operation and maintenance Mr. Dutch has.

I have over 2 decades worth of working on various types of radar systems, and RF energy propagation.

"Frequency Injection" .......


Here, let me give you some better terms to go look up:

"Ground Clutter"
"False Noise Return"
"Thermal Refraction Index"

Here is another:

"Analog to Digital Data Loss"

I really wish people would actually learn about electronics before they start to spout off like an expert and then try to scare the crap out of people with nonsense.

A Radar's receiver will only detect the frequencies that it's transmitters send out. The receiver in a radar will NOT detect frequencies outside of that bandwidth. If they did, our radars would be flooded with frequencies, effectively blinding them.

The front end part of the radar receiver has to be very sensitive to detect the incoming radar return. Unfortunately, electronics is not perfect, and false returns can be generated. Causes of these false returns can be anything from heat in the circuit to noise on the line. This can happen fast, and the circuit can correct for it, but sometimes not without false returns being generated.

Air density and refraction are a fact. A radar's return will be affected by these. Air temps and dew points can affect what a radar is seeing. If refraction is not compensated for, you can get all sorts of "crap" on your display screen.

Missing Data: people, when you look at large regional radar maps of the weather, you are not seeing 1 single radar that sees everything. You are actually seeing many, many, many radars, who's data is being consolidated to give a larger picture. When certain radars go off line, or lines of communications are interrupted or down, you'll have data loss. Because of how we display things with digital information in today's world, you'll see those square images of missing or incomplete data. A good example of this is anyone that uses satellite TV like The Dish or Direct TV. A good enough storm moves in to interfere with your signal, watch what happens to your TV display.

These "radar rings" pop up all the time in places, and no severe weather happens every single time.

Don't take my word for it. Use the same link that this "Dutch" fellow uses, and watch radar returns all around the world in real time. You'll see these pop up, and no, there is not always severe weather afterwards:

For March it is the largest confirmed out break of tornadoes.


Enlarge Friday and Saturday`s tornado outbreak ranks among the most epic sets of severe storms in recent memory. Here a few of the facts about the thunderstorm attacks: Between Friday morning and Saturday evening, 107 tornadoes were reported. This exceeds the average number of tornadoes for the entire month of March, 87 twisters. Friday`s 99 tornado reports also smashed the record for a single day of tornadoes in March (previously 58 reports).
