Cullman tower cam video will go down as one of the top tornado clips of all time, IMO.

That thing has moments where it looked like Andover and moments where it looked like Xenia. We were watching here at VU and I think all our jaws dropped.

I'm in class so I couldn't open the video. :( Hopefully someone posts it on YT...

not good

power out and NOAA radio down from storms this morning

Nice vortex hole on the radar with that cell.

And the cell affecting Arab, AL, 150 kts gate to gate, very likely a large and very destructive tornado ongoing.
