    If you hit the radar loop for the tornado on Rayne, you can actually see the rotation, even on the Weather Channel's internet loops.

    That's pretty unusual. I think I've seen it maybe once before?

    Early reports are that there is heavy damage, and several dead.

    And it heading our way later tonight.

    Early reports were 7 injured.

    Then 1 fatality and 9 injured.

    Then 12 injured, 1 fatal.

    Now 1 fatal, 50 injured, and northeast side of town being evacuated for gas main break.

    We have about 50 tornado watches/warnings each year here.....this one is troublesome.
