This storm system is effecting such a large area of the US

 "We actually are looking at a risk from the Gulf Coast to the Great Lakes to west of the Mississippi to the East Coast," Craig Fugate, director of the Federal Emergency Management Agency, told the Weather Channel. "And these storms are moving fast."

read this on fox...used to have nightmares about this when I was pregnant in texas, I hope she has other family to help her get through this...

Fourteen people were reported killed in Indiana, including four in Chelsea, where a man, woman and their 4-year-old great-grandchild died in one house. Tony Williams, owner of the Chelsea General Store, said the child and mother were huddled in a basement when the storm hit and sucked the 4-year-old out her hands. The mother survived, but her 70-year-old grandparents were upstairs; both died.

Omg.....That's awful. I had no idea this was going on out there. I guess I should watch the news more often. Prayers going up for all affected. I hope you all are staying safe. Check in, please, when you can.

I didn't either.. I spend way too much time with my head in the sand.   Cry

I wanted to add.. while our prayers are Heaven sent and I do believe in the power of Prayer... I also know we need to help ourselves and be our brother's keeper.  I have been the recipient of such graciousness from HEOer's..   so please keep your eyes open for opportunities to send money, help, supplies, whatever they need that can come from us to the appropriate agencies.  I know I like the Salvation Army the best.  Just seems more gets to where it needs to go with less fanfare and the American Red Cross.   

I don't have those websites or any of the other fine emergency agencies.. so if you do please post those links for anyone who may want to help.  I'm sure no donation is too small....

The Red Cross is encouraging people who want to help to make a financial donation.

People can help those affected by disasters like the Midwest tornadoes and storms, as well as countless crises at home and around the world, by making a donation to support American Red Cross Disaster Relief. Consider making a donation today by visiting www.redcross.org, calling 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767) or texting the word REDCROSS to 90999 to make a $10 donation.

Contributions may also be sent to someone's local Red Cross chapter or to the American Red Cross, P.O. Box 37243, Washington, DC 20013. Contributions enable the Red Cross to prepare for and provide shelter, food, emotional support and other assistance in response to disasters.

website link is now clickable, lol

Lots of wind and thunderstorms here, but none of the severe weather made it to my part of the state.
I am pretty sure there will be major flooding, though. Our ground is saturated already and can't take anymore downpours.

well, we only had 3 tornadoes go through Huntsville, AL this time. one hit (the F2 with the 14 mile track) 2 high schools. No one was injured thank God. Buckhorn HS has some serious damage to the science wing and the JROTC building but as of the newspaper article yesterday they plan to hold classes there today. A middle school was also damaged enough that they bussed all the kids to the Church of Christ and were announcing on the radio you could pick your kids up at the Church of Christ.

the prison was also damaged.

Anderson Hills subdivision was demolished in 1994, April 27, 2011, and was hit again Friday. That's only a few miles from my house.

the Red Cross, Salvation Army, and various churches do relief here in town. there was fund set up last April called April's Fury relief fund which directly funds Tennennessee Valley relief efforts. google is your friend. 

the local news stations for here are WAFF, WHNT, WAAY  and they all have links to local relief efforts if you are interested in donating fro help in my area.
