HORRENDOUS STORMS AND TORNADOS RIP APART THE SOUTH ON SUPER TUESDAY

We hope and pray that these storms abate today, but so far all the states are still going on...Here in Cleveland we have a Tornado Warning and Watch until 8:30am.It was a long and stormy night from the South all the way up to Ohio Valley to my area. All Mid South States involved and it started last night a little after 5pm. 3000 Students at Union University In Jackson, Tennessee, 1200 Students at risk, trapped in storms and debris. 45 People dead, hundreds Injured, and People still missing. Search Dogs being brought to the region.

I will update this thread later in day.

I had no idea it was this bad. What a path of destruction. Please stay safe up where you are.

I am okay...but It did storm all night, and 5am-8am we had a tornado watch- and there were high winds and a pink sky....( I could not believe when the warning came on the screen- and they listed C- Town- I was amazed)

My flag did get lost in the storm..I need to find it still....

It was nervewracking- I hate Tornados....more than Hurricanes or earthquakes...

I was in a tornado when I was six...

Thanks DK...we are fine...

I feel really bad for the South- the daylight reveals HOW bad it was...
