CYCLONE RANGER: Tornadoes Kill 50 Over 5 States


ROBERT PLANT & ALISON KRAUSS: Killing The Blues
BLOOMBERG NEWS: The deadliest tornado outbreak in almost a decade tore across the southern U.S. late yesterday, killing at least 50 people, sparking a pipeline explosion in Tennessee and destroying homes from Alabama to Kentucky. The “extremely dangerous” tornadoes, spawned by unseasonably warm temperatures, prompted the first high-risk weather alert issued in February in 10 years, AccuWeather.com said. Heavy rain, winds and hail are possible from the Carolinas to southern New Jersey, forecasters said. The 24-hour toll makes it the deadliest day of tornadoes since May 3, 1999, when 46 people died in Oklahoma and Kansas, said Greg Carbin, a meteorologist with the U.S. Storm Prediction Center in Norman, Oklahoma. Yesterday was also among the 15 most lethal episodes since 1950. MORE
