    They are following a huge tornado. Double image of the weather guy in OK and a storm tracker following it on the road.. They took a commercial break but will return to the story.

    Amazing. Simply amazing.

    What is with all these deadly tornadoes lately??
    Does anyone recall a few weeks back, where the tornadoes hit Alabama and Mississippi and Tennessee??
    That was my area, in Tennessee...one of the biggest devastations was less than 8 miles from me, we lost 34 people in our state. Alabama was hit hardest~

    I agree syrenn. My God, the terrible losses. When the tornadoes hit down this way, people in my area were finding newspapers and checks from Birmingham, Alabama....over 200 miles away!
    Jesus, it's bad enuff to lose everything they own, but to lose loved ones too.....it's sickening.

    Proved to be a wild ride here in Central Oklahoma yesterday! Feeling lucky as hell, not much damage in my part other than plenty of downed power lines and broken tree limbs. Seen some crazy shit since I've lived here but these series of supercells had me nervous.
