9. I happened to be watching online tv station as it hit.

Mobile is 90 miles SW of us.
I had been tracking another tornado on the puter, that headed in our direction, it hit a town 40 miles NW of us.

the Mobile one damaged 2 old historic buildings and did a lot of damage to a low income area.
Poor people are going to have problems with repairs.
And on Christmas Day, too.
Sigh.
Lots of stormy windy weather last night, for sure.

11. Mobile paper seems to indicate no casualties...

Mobile County Emergency Management Agency Director Ronnie Adair, who toured the area Wednesday morning with state EMA Director Art Faulkner, said “It’s a miracle that we’ve gotten hit 2 times within 5 days, in a highly populated area, and didn’t sustain any fatality or major injury.”

8. using Pat Robertson logic yes

which is pretty much what one would use with Hurricane sandy. God sayeth he's had enough of Mittens. Time to show what obama is really made of. oh look. and a Gov of New Jersey proved he wasn't entirely emotionless as well..
