    The Tornadoes broke out quickly and a couple of hours earlier than expected. Already 4 warnings very close by. Hail in these storms and told to expect very large hail.

    So, if I disappear for a while...it will probably be because of the storms or loss of power.

    These storms tonight are suppose to come in waves until morning.

    Already TV reports of 10 deaths from last evening & night storms here in Arkansas.

      Goodness, Michael!  We'll all be thinking of you and your fellow Arkansans - sending good thoughts and prayers your way.  Stay safe! and keep us informed when the danger is over.

      Tornadoes are frightening.. when  I lived in Indiana,  I did not have a storm cellar.  A friend would call us and say a tornado is heading straight for us. There was no place to go in a wooded country area..i would sit down on the floor and pray and mediate, that we were safe.. My prayers were answered..It was stunning to see the damage wrought by these storms. Huge Oaks were ripped out of the ground..all along my neighborhood..this was nothing compared to what people are going through now. My heart goes out to all these people, and all the people across the world..

    I hope the storms fizzle out before they spawn anymore tornado's or do any more harm. Keep your head down and be safe, we'll be praying for everyone's safety through these days.

    We're still having some spectacular lightning and thunder here and have since the middle of the night.  The weather says possible large hail...welcome to  sunny South Carolina!

    The pictures from Alabama were frightening!
