Storms and Tornadoes

Last night and early this morning, strong storms passed through several Southern states, including the one in which I live.  Today, about noonish a massive tornado hit Yazoo City, completely obliterating parts of the city.  So far, 10 deaths have been reported.  Governor Barbour has already activated the National Guard and declared a state of emergency for three counties. 

As far as I know, no one has been sent to Florida for two days of sensitivity training. 

The worst of the storms passed to the south of us, but we did get some heavy rains and strong winds.  I have one friend who is still unaccounted for, but as no deaths have been reported from her city (Columbus), I'm sure she is OK.  She's possibly without power, though. 

The rest of the NFL draft was held today, but suddenly, it just didn't seem all that important.
