    Yep, it is a total disaster around here. I just lost cable at the house. Electricity is on but over 100k people do not have it. The county next to mine had a curfew until this morning. Rossville Ga was basically destroyed.

    Quantico Marine Corp base just a few miles from me had some cloud funnels pop up,and people to the west of us in Bristow had a tornado do some damage, and I saw hail yesterday while in the basement (hubby called and wanted us to go down there just in case). But it passed through within 20 minutes. We're under tornado watches this morning. Nothing as bad as further south of us.

    Not good: CNN has just reported that Ringold GA was the hardest hit in the state of GA.

    I'm wondering about Cathic too -- he is in Tuscaloosa, and I saw the pics of Tuscaloosa... It was ravaged. I sent him a text. Haven't heard back.

    Good in knoxville. A ton of hail damaged a ton of cars and windows and such. We are lucky, prayers going out to Alabama.

    I finally heard from Cathic just now!

    "Tornado tore through my neighborhood destroyed most of what I know. I'm okay though helping with recoveries, lots of people dead injured, fish tank not going to make it, no water or power. Ordered fish, supposed to get here tomorrow, sad day for me. Let everyone know I am okay, will check in when power restored, having to be night watch right now, looters are murdering and all sorts of shit, this town has gone to hell. Thank god for 12 gauge shotguns!"

    Then he goes on..."It's the poorest parts of town that got the worst, I've seen a few dead now, don't wish that on anyone, fatalities are climbing from those areas by tens every 20 minutes or so. I'm using my RODI to filter water for me and my neighbors, the water is shut off from sewage contamination. Saltwater aquariums are saving lives! Here's one for living reefs."

    He asked that we pray to the fish gods for his tank. Poor Cathic!
