3. On April 27, 2011, we had an EF-5 pass by less than 2 miles to our northwest in north Alabama, ....

....and had an EF-1 spin by at about 100 yards. Compared to so many to our northwest who lost everything including their lives, we were very fortunate to only lose a few shingles and our electricity for a little more than a week. My wife was a clean-up volunteer and she saw things that were very, very bad.

Tornadoes are truly very frightening events. If I never see another one, that will be too soon.

6. du code is smart

It auto-embeds video. If you don't see the video, link problem.

11. Sometimes there's privacy issues

If you like to content marked private or some sort of time-sensitive hash or something. For images you can get punked by hotlinking blocks, it renders for you but not others and an hour later you'll see the image broken instead of present. The internet is annoying.

Nice video, tornadoes are beautiful and frightening at the same time.

9. Wow, scary.

Looks like quite a bit of damage there. I hope no one was seriously injured.

Does anyone know what level of tornado this one was?

12. As of the latest reports nobody was killed, but about 20 people were injured....

...Southern Miss, the college located in the town was also pretty heavily damaged, bit the school was closed until Wednesday for Mardi Gras.

As far the tornado level is concerned, my guess is an EF-3, possibly EF-4, based on the damage in various videos, and the fact that some reports stated that the tornado was up to a mile wide at times.
