Alabama storms in April

What a night it was. We do live in Alabama, where much damage and even some fatalities have happened. The photo above was made by me around 7 PM last night, just as that particular [storm] cell was moving into our area. It was three years ago on Sunday that the EF4 and EF5 storms ravaged the South. Last night was a grim reminder of that day. No one in our family was injured, and we pray for those who were injured and/or have lost loved ones. The property damage is also extensive, and many people are without utilities. Governor Bentley has declared every county in Alabama to be in a state of emergency. We also pray for those in Arkansas, Kansas, Oklahoma and elsewhere who have suffered severe weather conditions. Meteorologists are already warning our area that by noon more storms will be moving in. Everyone please stay safe and take cover asap if your area is in danger; do not wait around until it is too late. Remember if you must take cover to wear protective head coverings such as bike or football helmets if you have them. If you are in a mobile home or other metal structure building, please allow plenty of time to get to a safe place. Two of the fatalities in our area were people inside a mobile home...
