At Least 7 Poeple Killed, Many Injured & Others Missing As Deadly Tornadoes Ravage the South Last Night (VIDEO)
SAY A PRAYER FOR THOSE AFFECTED BY THE KILLER TORNADO JUST DAYS BEFORE CHRISTMAS …
At least 7 were killed yesterday as deadly tornadoes ravaged the South from Mississippi to Arkansas to Tennessee. The severe weather caused tornadoes across the South, 12 alone were witnessed in Mississippi alone. According to reports, 24 tornadoes touched down across 6 states. As reported by ABC News, it will be a difficult Christmas for many families in the south after deadly storms and tornadoes devastated the region, especially in Holly Springs, Mississippi, where a 7 year old boy was killed. The devastation is beyond words.
The mayor of Nashville, TN had asked businesses to let employees go hoe early to avoid the bad weather. When the tornado sirens went off late last night in Music City, thankfully it was mostly deserted. However, some were forced to take cover at the last minute as the severe weather came through. The winds and rain was incredibly severe and those not directly affected by the damage left in the wake of the tornadoes themselves, others lost power, including yours truly.
Tornado caught on tape as it hits highway lined with cars
Officials in tornado-ravaged areas were searching for missing people Thursday after a spring-like storm system swept across the southeast, killing at least seven people — including a 7-year-old boy.
The storms — which the National Weather Service called a “particularly dangerous situation” for an area that spanned eastern Arkansas, northwest Mississippi, northeast Louisiana and western Tennessee — destroyed homes and caused power outages on Wednesday.
It was the first such warning anywhere in the country in a year and a half.
The youngest victim of the severe weather was a 7-year-old in Holly Springs, Mississippi, who was killed in a van on Highway 7 as storms swept through the town, according to Marshall County Coroner James Anderson. Tree limbs and debris covered the highway Thursday, and emergency crews worked to restore downed power lines.
Three people were killed and two others were missing in Benton County, Mississippi, county coroner Shane Ward said late Wednesday. The dead were two men and one woman, all approximately in their 60s. Crews were going house-to-house Thursday to make sure all residents were accounted for.
The other victims were in Tennessee and Arkansas. A man and a woman were killed in Perry County, Tennessee, but no details were made public about their deaths. In Atkins, Arkansas, 18-year-old Michael Remus was killed when a tree crashed into the bedroom she was sharing with her 18-month-old sister. The toddler was taken to a hospital after being safely pulled out of the home by rescuers.
Authorities say teams of searchers are looking for three people still missing in Mississippi after Wednesday’s tornadoes.
Mississippi Emergency Management Agency spokesman Greg Flynn said Thursday a 35-person team was out looking for the two unaccounted people in Benton County, where he said at least two people died in the storms.
Flynn said another team was searching for the missing person in Tippah County, just southeast of Benton.
HMM, WHAT HAPPENED TO GLOBAL WARMING?
The UK Telegraph is reporting that we are headed within the next 15 years to a “mini ice age”. What is Al Gore and the rest of the global warming alarmists going to say? But I thought it was settled science that the Earth had a fever caused by man-made global warming? Guess not.
The earth is 15 years from a “mini ice-age” that will cause bitterly cold winters during which rivers such as the Thames freeze over, scientists have predicted.
Solar researchers at the University of Northumbria have created a new model of the sun’s activity which they claim produces “unprecedentedly accurate predictions”.
They said fluid movements within the sun, which are thought to create 11-year cycles in the weather, will converge in such a way that temperatures will fall dramatically in the 2030s.
Solar activity will fall by 60 per cent as two waves of fluid “effectively cancel each other out”, according to Prof Valentina Zharkova.
In a presentation to the National Astronomy Meeting in Llandudno, she said the result would be similar to freezing conditions of the late 17th century.
GLOBAL WARMING BABY … BOSTON BREAKS SNOWFALL RECORD.
It’s official, Boston, Massachusetts has broke the record this year for annual snowfall. Hmm, what about that global warming?Oh that’s right, the LEFT will call it climate change, even though their entire premise was based upon greenhouse gases and global warming. Has anyone ever been in a cold greenhouse? Because we all know that it snows in a green house, just ask Frostie the Snowman.
In a story March 15 about Boston’s seasonal snowfall record, The Associated Press erroneously reported the previous record, set in 1995-96. It was 107.6 inches, not 107.9 inches.
A corrected version of the story is below:
Boston breaks seasonal snowfall record with 108.6 inches
Boston breaks seasonal snowfall record with 108.6 inches, beating 1995-96
BOSTON (AP) — Boston’s made history by having the snowiest, and probably most miserable, season since 1872.
The official measurement of 108.6 inches at Logan International Airport Sunday night topped a season record of 107.6 inches set in 1995-96, according to the National Weather Service in Taunton, Massachusetts.
Al Gore was unavailable for comment, he was too busy dealing with snow and ice in Tennessee.
SNL Mocks NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio & His Overreaction to the Snowstorm of the Century With Seahawks Richard Sherman … “I’ve Seen Bigger Blizzards at Dairy Queen”
SNL MOCKS NYC MAYOR, THE BOY WHO CRIED
WOLF SNOW STORM OF THE CENTURY …
SNL’s opening skit was kinda lame, but has its moments. Except for the part where they lampooned NYC Mayor Bill de Blazio and his overreaction to the snow storm of the century, it pretty much was not that funny. De Blazio’s warnings of the pending storm that wasn’t was more along the lines of fear-mongering, and trying to take pre-credit for being on top of things, rather than telling NYC folks to be prepared. The skit went as follows … Richard Sherman (Jay Pharoah) and Marshawn Lynch (Kenan Thompson) hosted a faux-talk show, in which Sherman stated, and now I would like to begin the show the way I always do by verbally assaulting someone who’ve already lost.” Last night’s attack went out to New York City Mayor Bill de Blazio:
“De Blazio, yeah I am talking to you. You a punk ass mayor. You call that the biggest snow storm in the history of New York. I’ve seen bigger blizzards at Dairy Queen. And you seriously tried to shut down the whole city because of that?”
Below is the VIDEO of NYC Mayor de Blazio doing his best imitation of Chicken Little and the sky is family saying that the snow storm could be the largest snow storm in the history of the city. De Blazio stated that the snow projections are to be between 2 and 3 feet of snow that will hit the city. His message to New Yorkers was, “prepare for something worse than you have seen before.” Wait, was de Blazio talking about the snow or him being mayor?
Needless to say, NYC pretty much received little to no snow and yet he still shut down the city. Maybe the weathermen will turn their back on you next. I am surprised uber-liberal deBlazio did not blame the fowl up of the lack of snow to NYC on global warming.
The storm lived up to its billing here, where it dumped 19.1 inches, the fourth heaviest amount of snow on record for Providence. But in New York City where similar “historic” forecasts helped close down Gotham for a storm that fizzled, meteorologists and public officials were being accused of a “historic” screw-up.
Hey Al Gore … Columbia, SC Experienced Earliest Snow in 125 years of Weather Records Yesterday on Halloween Night
MORE GLOBAL WARMING BABY …
Last night on All Hallows’ Eve, Columbia, South Carolina experienced their earliest snow in 125 years of weather records. According to Accuweather, wet snow and slush brought down trees and power lines around Greenville, South Carolina as of early Saturday morning. Snow was reported as far south as Columbia, South Carolina, making it the earliest snowfall on record. What say you Al Gore? What are the odds that Gore and the rest of the global warming settled science crowd will blame this on climate change as well?
Columbia, SC has just experienced their earliest snow in 125 years of weather records, beating the Nov. 9, 1913 earliest snow record by 8 days. Current South Carolina weather shows it’s still snowing in Greenville, SC.
The Christian Science Monitor is reporting Greenville was especially hard hit with downed trees and power outages. The Smokey Mtns received up to 16 inches overnight. The current U.S. snow cover map shows 18 states with some amount of snow this morning.
Saturday morning, a record early-in-season snow coated parts of South Carolina to usher in the month of November.
Snow was observed as far south and east as Columbia, the earliest flakes on record in the city, occurring less than three days after a string of four straight days in the mid-upper 80s. Sleet was reported just northwest of Charleston, South Carolina.
A couple inches of snow coated grassy areas and some roads near Greenville and Pelion, South Carolina. Power lines were downed in Greenville, Greenwood, and Lexington Counties due to the combination of strong winds and wet snow accumulations.
Up to six inches of snow was reported around Asheville, North Carolina while 2.5 inches was measured in Boone, North Carolina. Seven inches was measured near Marshall, North Carolina (2280′ elevation). Up to 3 inches blanketed Bluefield, West Virginia.
Mt. LeConte, Tennessee (6400′ elevation) measured 22 inches of snow, with waist-deep drifts. Numerous roads were shut down in Great Smoky Mountains National Park, including U.S. 441. Trees were “cracking and popping” due to the weight of almost 13 inches of snow near Hartford, Tennessee (3400′ elevation).
