The storm that just missed Florence became tornado-warned when it crossed the Tennessee stateline according to Intellicast radar.

 

Following  the same path as the December tornado that cause heavy damage in Wayne and Lawrence Counties in Tennessee.

I agree   :(    

 

I think what happened almost five years ago (hard to believe) has caused a hangover effect. Also this is mostly a North Carolina crowd here. If it ain't there they don't talk about it. I looked in a few time during the day when I could catch a break at work but it didn't surprise me.

I know we don't have many people that post from al/ms, but there are those of us from all over that love weather outside of our backyard as proven by our midwest peeps here today. :)  The board as a whole does a great job in every region, filling up the gaps the best we can. I do wish the people from those areas would post more though  :(

What an incredible tornado.

 

 

Yeah pucker factor kicked up a notch from around 20 sec mark to the 35 sec mark on the video.....

 

I had to work tonight so I missed this ( was sleeping all day )  but other than this tornado has there been others, there are 9 reports on SPC but they all appear to be this cell/tornado...

Just picked up kids from school in West Columbia.  Rotation cloud formed as I sat in car pool line.   Did not form funnel but was trying.  Kids went into full tornado protection inside school.   Schools on a delayed release in midlands of SC.  Now a flash flood warning is out for some of the same areas that got hit in October.  It is a mess out there.

I drove threw it near Pelion....can someone post a scan?

I was in the path in Forest Acres. Saw no damage, but the weather was absolutely terrible with blinding rains and very strong winds.

People all over Mississippi were diving for cover most of the day.  :o  I try to ease away from work when I can. Even though football season is over, in Alabama recruiting season is just as big. I'm sure all the message boards are still being flooded. :D  I think more may post from now through April.

Still showing a possible tornado in GA with that one cell just W of Savannah

Yeah I agree that one might be on the ground, it looks dangerous per velocity.
