Very, very bad news from states to the west


These are reports of severe weather in the last few hours as of 8:42 p.m. CT by the SPC

The news is very bad to the west. This in from Bill Murray at Alabamawx.com, "Storm Chaser Jeff Piotrowski reports major damage in Stuttgart, AR. This is 90 miles SW of Memphis. This storm was near Almyra at 816. Damage has also been reported at DeWitt. It has a 10 out of 10 on the Baron BTI system. Never seen it. Storm tops to 50,000 feet. Incredible lightning.
…Also from Stuttgart…law enforcement reports TORNADO at 08:07 PM CDT — elderly woman trapped in her residence. numerous trees down across Stuttgart." Three have also died in Missouri.

The Weather Channel is ignoring this outbreak, showing "Epic Conditions". Go figure.
