I'm sorry for not updating this the past week. It's definitely been a week I should have been updating this. Finals took over my life for a little bit. In the mean time, there's been one of the worst tornado outbreaks in U.S. history. Towns all across the south in Texas, Arkansas, Mississippi, Alabama, Tennessee, Georgia, North Carolina, and Virginia have been effected by tornadoes the past 3 days. We can all agree that Alabama took the worst of it though. Parts of Tuscaloosa, AL were completely wiped off the map when an extremely powerful tornado swept through (likely rated EF4-EF5). As of right now, the death toll on Wednesday alone is approaching 300. Preliminary reports show over 30 deaths in Mississippi and Tennessee with a few in Virginia and North Carolina. I cannot say for sure how many died in Alabama because the number seems to change every few minutes. Please pray for those that lost loved ones across the south.
