New Tornado Super Outbreak Kills at Least 290 in South

The worst tornado outbreak since the Tornado Super Outbreak of 1974 killed at least 290 in the South’s Dixie Alley Wednesday, including at least 194 in Alabama, where Tuscaloosa was devastated. A record-setting estimated 164 tornadoes struck from Mississippi all the way to New York, knocking two nuclear power plants off line and leaving hundreds injured, thousands homeless, and over a million without power. Alabama was hit hardest. A Toomer’s for Tuscaloosa Facebook page has been created to coordinate information and assistance for tornado survivors in the Tuscaloosa area.
