Mississippi and Alabama are getting slammed. Our power was out for several hours this morning after the first round came through and it's God's grace that I have power now, most in my area do NOT. Cell service is spotty so if you are trying to get someone here its best to text and text again. About half of the text messages are getting through most calls are not. Landlines are just as bad. I have VOIP and I can call out, but if you don't have power you don't have voip. We have gobs of huge trees down all over our county and my city (60 miles west northwest from Bham). At one point this morning we had 250,000 homes with no power. Culman (45 miles north of B'ham) just had a tornado go through its downtown that is reported to have damaged the courthouse there. I watched this come across the city on the the skycam network until it kncocked oout the power there. It was huge and definately on the ground. There will be significant damage there and they were damaged as we were from the round that went through at dawn.
