Enterprise Tornado

What a tragic day it was, six days ago, March 1, 2007. Who wouldn't shed a tear seeing the faces of those high school students and listening to their friends pour out their hearts on the news after the funerals of their friends? Who wouldn't feel a wave of joy at the spirit of unity and community that the people of Alabama and especially Coffee County have shown?

There is an informative, emotional, and enlightening netcast about the situation in Enterprise this week on WeatherBrains. Thanks to meteorolgist James Spann for mentioning my point that this was the first time in 16 years that a tornado caused fatalities in a school in the United States. I hope that this tragedy does not cause people to believe that schools should routinely let out early durning stormy days because it is not the best option.

Below are photos of the damage shared with me by the Director of the Coffee County DHR. Further down are some radar images shared with me by my friends at Alabamaweather.org.
