    Major damage and some deaths in Southern Indiana. Reports are one small town, Marysville, was leveled and the death count is rising. Storms are also in Kentucky and Tennessee and Ohio. Reports of at least 6 dead so far in Indiana. They are saying it was an F4 and half a mile wide with multiple vortices. Bad news.

    It's a dark and stormy night... Seriously, hope everybody in those storm areas can remain safe.

    These type of outbreaks usually occur in April not the first of March. We had 60's in central Indiana Wed and almost 60 today. Gonna be winter again tomorrow and Sunday. Just wonder if this is going to be one of those years where tornado outbreaks approach record levels.

    I remember the Palm Sunday tornadoes in 1965, had a funnel go right over my house, and the 1974 outbreak.

    Whew, we dodged the bullet this time. It looks so bad on the weather channel maps. Prayers for anyone in the path of those twisters.

    As far south as Georgia now. I'm 300 hundred miles away, and the weather is unstable. One minute cars with their lights on, next few minutes, sun. Heavy rain & thunderstorms coming in.

    It has been getting too close for comfort for me here lately.....seems we are having more and more tornadoes than I ever remembered.
    Last years tornadoes killed 9 people down the highway from me.
