PDS - Particular Dangerous Situation .. Twisters in the Night
The Mobile Tornado has everyone talking. Not that often you have a wedge shaped tornado on the ground for a long time in a metropolitan city on Christmas Day.
Amazingly this was the second tornado to touchdown in Mobile in less than a week.
Texas also had tornadoes today as the first victim of this storm system died. A 25 year old man in a Houston suburb was killed when a tree fell on his pick up truck that he was riding this morning in Harris County.
Notice the rain falling in South Carolina from the warm front that is associated with this system.
Note the freezing conditions in Arkansas.
The line of storms pushing through as warm, moist air is punching up into the heart of the cold weather creating dry lines, rotation and a memorable weather event on Christmas Day of 2012!
Live updates are being forecast from Accuweather:
Several people caught the Mobile Tornado on their cell phones...
You ABSOLUTELY must watch this video... real video with a real tornado not special effects.
