I live there and evidently it blew out a window across the street. I work in Government Plaza for the City. We were supposed to go downstairs but never heard the warning. Lights are flickering and sirens are going off but that is about it.

You guys in LA are in good hands. Jindal will handle things properly.

We're being hit with tornadoes here in southern ARkansas as well...coming in from Northern LA.

There are at least 2 tornado-warned areas. In one case, the storm is now at Laceyville, heading east of Nacogdoches, then possibly east of Garrison.

Case #2: Gary City, Carthage, and then Greenwood (and I-20) are under the gun.

Lemme also add case #3 - the one this thread is based on...

That echo looks more impressive, and is now NW of Shreveport, heading to Benton and toward Spring Hill. Shreveport resident should be looking to the SW if this storm has passed them, 'cause those other two storms are also heading in your general direction.

Crummy radar updates... the main Shreveport storm now appears to be at Springhill. Intellicast seems to be getting faster updates than the NWS.

The Nacogdoches storm seems to be following Texas St Rd. 7, generally toward Shreveport.

The Carthage storm is still tornado-warned until 5:30 local time, and is close to I-20, just west of Greenwood... near Waskom.

No doubt the tornado and the local, state and fed response to it is Bush’s fault.
