Deadly Tornado Outbreak

Wednesday March 28th will be remembered by many for the extreme number of tornadoes. As of 10:45pm CDT 61 tornadoes have been reported. At this time, two people are confirmed dead in Beaver County, Oklahoma. KUSA-TV in Denver reports three injures with major damage in the small town of Holly, Colorado (on the far eastern side of Colorado).

This outbreak will near a record for March. On March 20/21, 1976, 68 tornadoes touched down in one day. On March 13/14, 1990, 59 tornadoes touched down. The number will continue to rise until midnight. Hopefully we won’t break a record and there won’t be any more fatalities. There are reports that many rural towns in KS, OK, and NE do not have power…and no way to get the warning. Just another reason that every household must have a weather radio.

    I knew that it would be bad when i saw it on the weather channel earlier yesterday.. they were showing how everything was just coming together along the front for a severe weather outbreak.. are we expecting severe weather from this?… i hope so… because i really miss it. I know it sounds strange but i like it haha… as long as nobody is hurt. And about the weather radio, everybody should have one. I also have alerts sent to my phone. If theres severe weather, i can get to safety… sure no tornadoes have came through recently, but you still need to be alerted when to stay indoors.
