  1. 92 currently with a dp in the upper 60’s giving me a HI of 96. Ugh

  6. I was just posting the same thing as you ninja'd me At least 6" so far and counting as the storms are training along
  7. 1974......148 tornadoes across 13 states in 15 hours with 30 confirmed EF4/EF5. That violent day in April isn't anything I'll ever forget. 2011 was over 3 days with 343 tornadoes, 207 on the 27th, but only 15 were EF4/EF5. This is why there are only 2 "super outbreaks". Nothing else is comparable.
  8. Welcome! We look forward to having you hang around
  9. You too Shawn. Not sure where you are, but I'm not too fond of the soundings in the St.Matthews area

  12. Walterboro to Summerville got hit pretty good. I’m still waiting to hear from people...ugh. I’m glad to hear they’re okay! I don’t think Oconee(among a lot of others) has checked in yet, and I’m counting everyone off the list as they do. I’m really happy to hear those that have checked in are relatively unscathed for the most part Hopefully everyone else checks in soon.
  13. You are correct. It looked like it went right over you. Glad to hear you all are okay.
