10 years.... Can't believe it
And we're off and running
This will likely be in podcast form later tonight or tomorrow morning
I can't believe it's been 10 years. This was the event that brought me back to meteorology. I know there are at least a few posters on here that were directly effected...I can't even begin to imagine the terror for those that survived tornadoes that day...
I have spent the past 10 years reading and studying so much about this event. Meteorologically speaking, it was absolutely incredible....the entire month, really. A lot of people try to compare April 27, 2011 to each bigger event since and there is no comparison. It's just so incredible how the event unfolded. There will be other big events, or even just singular big-time tornadoes, but another event like this...
Up until recently I had no idea the tornadoes started so early on 4/27. There were multiple EF3s before 6 am.
I guess I just figured the event started in the late morning and continued on throughout the day.
And Joplin was less than a month later. Was a wild ass time
Why does this thread title include the words "and runaway barge"? I ask myself multiple times per day and it is a growing concern.
Back in May 2019 there was a runaway barge on the Arkansas river that got swept away in flooding and hit the dam. There was concern it may damage or breach the dam and was kind of a funny story to follow for a week or so.
You're not giving that slippery barge enough credit. It would disappear and reappear several times on its epic downstream charge.
It certainly was a sneaky lil bastard
or it was being tracked by a few idiot Arkansans
Can't believe this was 10 years ago. I wasn't even living in Alabama at the time. I didn't find out about this until I woke up at midnight after crashing from working 2 jobs on the 27th. I remember getting on TMB and just seeing the threads immediately texting anyone I cared about that went to Bama plus my family in Birmingham. I finally reached my little brother about 2am then my best friend's texted me about 6am letting me know his apartment had been hit at Bama but he was okay. April 28th is my birthday I still didn't hear from several friends and loved ones until later that week, and I went to work that day a complete anxiety mess. I can't imagine what people who were in this tornado went through so unbelievably sad I wasn't even here and it was a week I will never forget. I came home 3 months later to visit and driving through Tuscaloosa was something.
Flooding is pretty bad this morning, and the rain can’t stop won’t stop
Had an observed tornado go by lowell in northwest arkansas this morning from that branson warned storm.
Still waiting on these asses to get the video uploaded from hours ago.
Some tweets of idiot Arkansans driving on flooded roads
This is near one of the Walmart home office campuses
Here’s another. Only the driver and 1 student were on that bus that got washed off the road.
People just driving right into it
