100 Tornadoes in 24 Hours, but Plenty of Notice

"The tornadoes were unrelenting — more than 100 in 24 hours over a stretch of the Plains states. They tossed vehicles and ripped through homes. They drove families to their basements and whipped debris across small towns throughout the Midwest. In some areas, baseball-size hail rained from the sky."

Annie's take:

Though the property destruction from tornadoes over the weekend was heavy, the number of lives lost were significantly reduced becasuse of the revised alerting system now being tested. I expect to learn a lot more about tornadoes as I prepare to lead discussions in May and October at EPCOR on lessons learned from the 2011 Joplin tornado.
