I know spotter icons are not necessarily accurate to the timing but I will note this doesn't look very good either. I hope we don't get news in a couple days of more chasers being killed by a tornado.

Chasers were talking about it crossing directly in front of them.  Sad to say but they could have been caught out.  The South is brutal to chase in -- look how few options they had.  It's basically one major road from Eutaw to Greensboro, and it's so heavily forested in that region.

You can see when the tornado hits something on radar. Velocities remain maxed out throughout but you can see the pulsing bursts of higher reflectivity when it hits likely buildings. This things the monster you worry about with these parameters in this setup- it has come to fruition. I wish this was hyperbole

That's big time. 

And earlier in the thread we had posts about SRH being the bust factor today!

That seemed to be what held back the NE MS cells earlier but sure isn't the case with these AL monsters. These are beyond impressive. Effective shear for both cells per mesoanalysis up to 70-73kt.
