Updated, 5 min ago ..


Tornado watches and warnings covered a wide swath of the South and Midwest Wednesday, as storms caused widespread power outages, structural damages and were blamed for at least one death and multiple injuries in the regions.

Tornado warnings were issued in areas from central Tennessee and Kentucky to northern and western Georgia and were in effect until Wednesday afternoon.

A tornado reportedly touched down in northwestern Georgia Wednesday morning, causing "major structural damage," The Weather Channel reported. Tornado watches were also in effect in areas of Mississippi, Ohio and West Virginia. The storms were expected to move east later in the day.

Oh wow.... crazy weather huh.

I have lived in Tennessee all of my life and its just getting stranger each year since the middle 90's. There is definitely change going on globally that one will not be able to deny much longer.

Growing up on a farm it was easy to know when to plant our crops.. now... there is no way to know because nothing is defining the seasons any longer.

We had an F2 touch down around 3:45 am here right down the street from my house (Mt. Juliet) last night/this morning. Did wide spread damage to homes and businesses, even our ballpark is destroyed.

My bf went outside to look and came running back in telling me to get the kids in the closet. My heart sank because for him to say take cover... was a lot. He grew up in Dallas seeing many tornadoes.

Definitely a climate change going on.
Texas hardly sees tornadoes any more.

Multiple buildings were reported damaged, with people trapped inside, in northern Bartow County after a tornado touched down late Wednesday morning. At least one person reportedly died when the tornado slammed into Adairsville.

Deadly, Damaging Storms Roar East
January 30, 2013

"As bad as it is right now, it's probably going to get worse," said Dr. Greg Forbes, severe weather expert for The Weather Channel."


A huge storm system with thunderstorms, damaging winds and possible tornadoes raked a wide area of the central U.S. and South on Wednesday, and threatened to become more powerful as it roared East. The severe threat includes many major cities: Atlanta, Charlotte, Raleigh and New Orleans. Philadelphia, New York City, Washington, D.C., and southern New England could see 60 mph winds Wednesday night, forecasters said.

The squall line, which extended from Canada to the Gulf of Mexico, created travel headaches. A ground stop was issued for arriving flights at the world's busiest airport, Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, on Wednesday morning.

It went over my house. My dog got ansty but it was over fast. Adairsville is bad. Maybe worse than CNN's coverage. I mean...wth.. CNN is headquartered in Atlanta. What is with that carp coverage? They said at least one home destroyed...they lost any cred they had left w me. Horrible source.

Homes destroyed, businesses gone, people trapped, at least one death. Triage set up town center....town blocked off, big manufacturing plant GONE...get your news form WsbTV, Fox5 atlanta, and Twitter for Adairsville news. They are still going door to door.

Say a wide f3 was what hit last I heard.

Glad you are ok. I have family in the area I am trying to get in touch with.

News didn't start reporting the F2 that came through my town until later this morning. Why that is I have no idea. Here in Mt. Juliet, TN it was a 115 mph F2 confirmed. www.wkrn.com...

From the link it states..


The tornado was on the ground for 4.6 miles and had a width of 150 yards. The heaviest damage occurred in a commercial district around Lebanon Road and Mt. Juliet Road where one warehouse and an automotive business were heavily damaged. Several other businesses in the area received minor to moderate structural damage. Significant damage to outbuildings, fences and power poles also occurred at the Mt. Juliet ballpark. Dozens of trees and power lines were blown down and many other homes received minor damage along the storm's path.


Another article (same link) states


n Nashville, a 47-year-old man was killed when a tree fell onto a trailer behind a home in the 3800 block of Abernathy Road in Bordeaux, north of Nashville. Metro police said Vernon Hartsell was living in the trailer. At 3:30 a.m., high winds uprooted a large tree, which crashed into the building. He was crushed and died at the scene. A crane had to be used to lift the tree off of Hartsell. Also in Davidson County, at least half a dozen homes in the Ranchwood Mobile Home Park on Dickerson Pike off Trinity Lane were damaged. A tree fell into a living room where a woman, her son and great grandson were seated. "It was cracking. It was just the worst sound I've ever heard in my life," Delorise Adkins recalled. Adkins was on one couch with her three-month-old great-grandson Ricky and her son Samuel was seated across from them. "It was just like, I don't know, a train, like the trailer just ran into something, like it was just a loose train and just ran into something," Adkins continued. No one was seriously injured although a picture frame fell off a wall and hit Adkins in the head, causing a gash on her forehead. The family is just glad to be alive. Samuel Reed said, "I'm just glad to be alive. I'm glad they're okay." "That trailer, you know, is nothing compared to the life of this child or that one, nothing compared to that," Adkins said. The American Red Cross is working to find shelter for at least five families from the mobile home community. In Williamson County, Ravenwood High School in Brentwood sustained some damage to its roof but the school is open Wednesday. Significant damage was also reported in Mt. Juliet, where forecasters confirmed an EF2 twister with 115 mile-per-hour winds touched down, in Robertson County, where the roof of a gas station was blown off and in Hickman County, where as many as 15 homes were damaged or destroyed. Two additional tornadoes occurred along the Dickson-Cheatham County line and in Sumner County, south of Gallatin.


If I knew how to embed photos I would but via the link there are plenty to view. Its crazy looking.

The storm must not have reached us yet, or maybe it fizzled out, Im in Surfside beach S.C. and we havent had anything but some clouds and a lil wind, havent seen any rain yet, UNFORTUNATELY storms usually fizzle out before they get here, so we miss all of the good stuff, sometimes.
