Thread title says it all, this will go down in history as second to super outbreak.

Specifically for Yesterday.

I'm very sad that any of us had to witness this historical event. God bless everyone touched by these tornadoes and floods.

I fear that the death toll will still climb throughout the day. Just in the past huor or so it has gone over 200, and now 238. When all is said and done, we could be talking the same numbers as the super outbreak.

A tremendously sad day indeed.

148 confirmed tornadoes over 2 days.

And 310 for the death toll, or 319 if you count past the 11 states affacted. There were 9 deaths in Ontario as well.

Last night the fatality estimates were at 70-90

Now were talking about 238 and rising. Still haven't heard much from the towns that were "obliterated".

Per Wiki 315-330 deaths.

There were 148 total tornadoes, with 96 F2-F5 tornadoes.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Xenia_Tornado...:_Xenia.2C_Ohio

I'm interested to see how many EF3+ tornadoes confirmed with yesterday's system.
When was the last time we had an EF5 tornado was it Greensburg?

Parkersburg Iowa, 2008 I believe.

Parkersburg Iowa in 2008 I think. Greensburg before that. Those are at least confirmed instances. I would imagine we had at least one EF5 yesterday. The video is insane and undeniable. I couldn't imagine anything less than an EF5 for Tuscaloosa or Birmingham after watching those, especially with the damage and death tolls now.

The last time Alabama had an F5 tornado was April 8, 1998. Where an F5 tornado went through Jefferson County during the April 1998 Birmingham tornado. That tornado outbreak produced 15 tornadoes with 41 deaths across Alabama/Georgia.

QUOTE
My long time associate and ABC 33/40 Chief Photographer Bill Castle just landed from flying the track of the Tuscaloosa/Birmingham tornado. He has seen it all over the years, and just told me this looked much worse that the April 8, 1998 EF-5 along the path. The tornado never lifted along the path he flew from Tuscaloosa to Fultondale. Site built homes totally off the foundation, massive timber damage in East Tuscaloosa County. No doubt in his mind this will be rather EF-4 or EF-5. And, remember, the track actually started in Mississippi and continued into Georgia after causing more severe damage in Northeast Alabama near Piedmont.


By the way good job from Mr. Spann yesterday covering the storms pretty much all day, excellent work.

just heard on CNN they are still finding bodies in Rainville,AL and havn't even got to half of it. I never thought in my life, that a death toll could reach these numbers. I am shocked.
