All they need now is for a quake somewhat bigger than the rash they’ve been having in Arkansas.

Looks like Memphis is getting hammered again too! Dang!

I put fertilizer down today, so it probably won’t rain in eastern Tennessee until September.

Been a wicked Spring just about everywhere I think. We even had a Tornado here in the VA mountains recently. I could probably count on one hand how many times I’ve heard of that happening. Scary stuff. Bitter sweet watching the videos though. They are awesome and exciting to behold, but many lives are destroyed by the damage they inflict.

Me and lots of good other Freepers!

Now if we could just get a drinking game started, say drink every time the local TV weather man says "rotation" or "take cover", we'd be lit up!

My daughters family apparently has 3 tornado cells headed their way.

She’s lost power and I can’t get her on the cell phone.

Praying.

I was just at my volunteer FD in Faulkner Co and we saw that storm form right in front of us. Even saw some rotation and a few tornadoes try to form.

I love technology. Getting that sort of on the scene report from 32k feet is pretty impressive, if you stop to think about it.

We had a couple awful bands of severe TS go thru Irwin/Jeanette/Greensburg (and Ft. Allen...again!) But only thunder in Murrysville (where son had baseball game). We get the leftovers of what’s happening in the south tomorrow.

Prayers up, from PA for the safety of our FRiends in South tonight.

A possible tornado touched down in the East Texas town of Edom Tuesday evening, injuring at least one resident when her mobile home was destroyed, Edom Fire Chief Eddie Wood said.

The latest round of storms began as communities in much of the region struggled with flooding and damage from earlier twisters. In Arkansas, a tornado smashed Vilonia, just north of Little Rock, on Monday night, ripping the roof off the grocery store, flattening homes and tossing vehicles into the air.

An early warning may have saved Lisa Watson’s life in that case. She packed up her three children and was speeding away from the Black Oak Ranch subdivision in Vilonia when she looked to her left and saw the twister approach. Two of her neighbors died in their mobile homes, and a visiting couple who took shelter in a metal shipping container where the husband stored tools died when the container was blown at least 150 feet into a creek.

Jimmy Talley said his brother, David, told his mother that he and his wife, Katherine, were leaving the mobile home they’d been staying in because they thought the container would be safe.

“He said ‘I love you, Mom,’ and that’s the last that anybody heard from him,” Jimmy Talley said.

The tornado also reduced the mobile home the couple had been staying in to a pile of boards and belongings. The other victims were Charles Mitchell, 55, and a 63-year-old man whose name has not yet been released.

It is pretty cool. I’m tracking our flight path and watching the weather radar. Been a bumpy flight - At one point the told us to check our seat belts. Now we are out past Wichita Kansas and have a little more weather to fight thru. Nothing like Ark, NW LA, & Memphis. I hope all are safe tonight there is going to be a lot to clean up tomorrow.

Alot of my immediate family lives in Arkansas- talking to my daughter who lives a couple miles from one of the towns so hard hit last night. She said she has not seen a green sky like they had last night since moving from the midwest. She grew up with tornadoes- it takes a bit to impress her- last night when I called, she said, well- we are still here.
