Major wind storms here !
We've had a major wind storm here. Our winds here got up to 75 miles per hour. There is major damage all around here, with downed trees, power lines & thousands without power, some until Sunday. We were one of the lucky ones who still has there power & no damage to our home.

It's still crazy here, they have set up shelters for those without power.

There are still families without power yet. They say some won't get any until Sunday or Monday. Homes are destroyed, along with cars, one person died when a branch came through there window as they were driving down the road.

01/10 - Tornados Mississippi & Alabama

The threat has passed for my area of NW Alabama at this post. Earlier a tornado touched down about twenty miles west and tracked northest, just to the west of the house. No damage here, but my neighbors and I will be swapping stuff around in our yards!

No one has been hurt and minor damage reports are being received.

Though the major threat has past, we remain under a tornado watch until 7 pm CT.

I hope all of you are safe & sound there. There are still 17,900 people here without power. Keep us updated with what is going on there.
