April Outbreak Part Two

I should probably make one huge write-up about this event and not multiple segments, but information at this point is changing and media must be shared, so bear with me! 318 fatalities have now been confirmed making this the worst outbreak since 1932.

I have found some good articles and tidbits online about the recent outbreak. thought I would compile a list to share them. Not only do they have massive amounts of statistics, but also the weather set up is described.

And an inevitable question many people must be asking after two weeks of tornado outbreak. Fully agree that time will tell in this situation and extensive research should take place before making a decision:
Some footage from a helicopter over Tuscaloosa. Got sick 5 min in.
This is a radar photo edit of the storm that trucked through Tuscaloosa and Birmingham. This could be the longest lived tornado in history if the track is confirmed.

"Radar montage of the most impressive supercell from yesterday's massive tornado outbreak. This cell traveled about 450 miles and lasted over 8 hours! It also was responsible for the large, violent tornado that caused the destruction in Tuscaloosa, N side of Birmingham, and a number of other cities." - Brian Tang

If you are at all interested in donating to those affected, consider doing it through portlight.org. Funds go straight to domestic disaster response. The American Red Cross is, of course, always a safe bet as well.
