Hundreds Of Tornadoes Ravage Southern States

April 19, 2011 by  

Hundreds of tornadoes ravage Southern StatesA total of 241 tornadoes swept across 14 States this past week, killing at least 45 people, and injuring hundreds.

According to FOX News, approximately 62 twisters touched down in North Carolina alone, producing the worst spring storms in the Tar Heel State in the last 20 years. In Bertie County, 11 people have been confirmed dead. In the capital city of Raleigh, three family members died in a mobile home park.

The University of Arkansas (UA) Department of Agriculture advises residents against staying in their vehicles or mobile homes during a tornado because they offer little protection from flying debris. Falling trees, airborne objects, collapsing power lines and broken glass are likely in the event of a severe windstorm, and mobile homes are typically not equipped to withstand those elements.

Ideally, individuals should find a below-ground location if a tornado is imminent. However, some natural disasters can hit without warning, so it is best to find an interior room, such as a laundry room or bathroom, that does not have windows, the college suggests.

Even after a twister passes, survivors should remain alert because tornadoes can reverse direction. If a residence still has electrical power, UA's Department of Agriculture says that it's best to utilize a radio or television to receive updates about the status of the storm.

    It is the worldwide collective consciousness of negativity that is bringing about these unusual destructive natural disastes, and it is sites like this that are perpetuating the negativity.

    • K. D. M.

      What’s ya smokin there karolyn?????? Negative thoughts do not produce severe weather……. If your so concerned about negativity on this web site stop looking at it.

      • Bob from Calif.

        The only negative waves are the ones coming from H.A.A.R.P, and the Scalar weapons that the Russians are using against us. These are weapons of war that can manipulate the weather. If you don’t believe me start researching the subject it is scarry.

        • American Patriot

          Bob, I just posted the same thing further down about HAARP. It is amazing how many people do not know about it. Or, CHEMTRAILS/CONTRAILS.

        • Jay

          HAARP can also be used to stimulate earthquakes! Japan?

        • granny mae

          Bob from Calif.

          I have been reading a lot and hearing a lot about this and it surely is scary !

    • 45caliber

      Sorry, karolyn. Apparently you never heard of science. Negative thinking is now so old it has whiskers since it was created by the hippies in the 1960′s. It is simply a way to blame everything that happens on someone else.

      • libertytrain

        45caliber – that was the best description I have heard in forever – perfect answer.

        • Norm

          libertytrain
          That sounds like the mantra of the teabaggers.

          • 45caliber

            Norm:

            Really? I didn’t the gay population believed that sort of thing.

          • 45caliber

            Sorry. I meant “I didn’t think the gay …

          • libertytrain

            You’re right 45, it appears that many gay people are of the leftist persuasion – so I guess Norm is talking about them and confused as always..

      • karolyn

        Nobody’s blaming anything on anybody else. Everything emanates energy, right? Well, why would that energy not affect change? Kinesiology shows that somthing “bad” for you like cigarettes, if held in one’s hand will effect the ability of one to hold up one’s arm when force is applied to the arm. However, if an apple is held in the hand, the arm can be held up against the force the other is applying. This has been proven. Why is it so far-fetched to believe that the collectivity negativity in the world is affecting everything that happens? Try reading “Power vs. Force” by Dr. David Hawkins.

        • 45caliber

          karolyn:

          I’d rather believe in the Dark Side of the Force. Holding something bad like a cigarette will keep you from raising your arm? There are millions of smokers who would disagree with that, I’m afraid. Those who believe in voodoo will tell you that a practitioner can place a curse on someone and it will kill them. However it only works IF that person personally believes in it. They cannot affect anyone else.

          Recently an official in India who debunks this sort of thing, went on national TV and challenged a mystic who insisted on this power to do just that. After several months, the mystic was kicked off tv and dropped to obscurity. The official is still doing his stuff.

    • Jay

      Karolyn, the new age religion is rotting your brain!

      • karolyn

        My brain has never been as alive as it is now. Having an open mind is such a freeing experience!

        • Jay

          So wide open, any crap can get in there!

        • http://?? Joe H.

          karolyn,
          Taking mind expanding drugs again, are you??? do the letters LSD, STP mean anything to you??? Trying out the sunshine are you???

      • 45caliber

        Jay, the reason her mind is wide open is because the brain has totally dissolved.

        • Jay

          45 caliber, it’s not so much an open mind as a big vacuous space between her ears, of course that would preclude her brain being dissolved! Of all the hair brained comments she ever made, the one above takes the cake!!!

          • http://?? Joe H.

            Jay,
            remember a vaccume will pull anything in!!! When it does, it’s real hard to sort out as well!!

        • Karolyn

          Of course I expected this kind of comeback, but it sure doesn’t phase me. It’s just too bad your minds are so closed. There is so much more to know and I will never stop learning.

          • Jay

            The sad condition of the new age atheist: “Forever learning, understanding nothing”!

    • American Patriot

      Karolyn, You didn’t by some chance graduate from U.C. Berkley did you? Those people are taught to believe in some of the goofiest people or things. Like OBAMA. Or, yes we can, or, Hope and change. LoL

  • Raggs

    I have lived in AR all of my life… I have seen many many tornados..
    That being said why is the left trying to blame this on a man made global warming BS theory when it is a natural occurence that no body but GOD controls….

    • 45caliber

      But you are missing the real point of the libs – mankind IS god. We are the ultimate thing in existence. And if anyone tries to say differently then we are liars, false speakers, idiots, etc.

      I agree with you however. I lived in Arkansas myself for over thirty years. The last ten or so was in Tornado Alley outside Little Rock. (Incidently, Pulaski County where Little Rock is has more sighted tornadoes than all the rest of the state and Oklahoma combined. That is why University of Arkansas gets so involved in tornado studies.) I’ve had them go over my house and chase me down the freeway. Tornadoes are not something to play with. I agree with the article above. SEEK SHELTER IMMEDIATELY IF ONE IS IN THE AREA!

    • American Patriot

      Here is some topics to research for those of you that love to read science on research and development. Look up HAARP, And CHEMTRAILS. these are 2 weather modification topics. Better yet. Go to youtube and watch the expose on these 2 topics. TRUTH IS STRANGER THAN FICTION! There is a lot of chatter going on in the www about HAARP possibly being used to start what Japan faced a month ago. Look at all the data.

      • granny mae

        American Patriot,

        I have heard that there is belief that HAARP was involved in the one in Hati and Chili, and Japan ! It may be true or it may be false but it sure does make you wonder and think. If someone is testing out this thing, what kind of disaster could they bring on this world? Is it to be used for war or for good to stop these distructive storms. I also heard it was used to manipulate hurricane Katrina ! Was it used to keep the hurricanes this last year from coming to Florida? I think all the storms curved and went north and out to sea. Hum, I wonder !

  • Norm

    Surely these RED states won’t be seeking government intervention or financial aid.
    Karolyn it wasn’t negative thoughts that caused the destruction, it was Obama. ;o)

    • Raggs

      No doubt that if your obama could find a way to control the weather he would tax me to pay for it…

      • Norm

        Only you Raggs – only you!

        • Raggs

          I beg to differ… I can throw a rock and hit a thousand people that feel the same way.

          • Norm

            Raggs
            Make it a large rock please.

    Up north in tornado alley we get blizzards and tornados, learn to live with it. It could be all the non stop flying vacations Onumnutts and Big Mamee have been taking since they fly on seperate big jets. It al the air disturbance from the wings votecsand the howling by unions and their worthless CO2 being explelled on their roits, just a bad combo. Of course it could be fast eddee and karolyn wiping with a furious storm with a low pressure and a high presssure systems coming together. Never have heard is being from negative thought that happening, or maybe that what regressive depressives call global warming!

    • Raggs

      I figure nancy pelosi is one of the biggest bag’s of wind in DC.

      • 45caliber

        Actually, I think we should place a bowl over the capitol and use the hot air to generate electricity. There would probably be enough to power half the Eastern Seaboard.

        • Jay

          What ever you do, don’t light a match!

          • http://?? Joe H.

            Lord no!!! total destruction of the earth as we know it!!

          • Jay

            LOL!!!

  • momplayer

    My son-daughter-in-law and 2 grandchildren moved to NC about a year ago from Las Vegas. They all spent the day in the laundry room and no matter what’s causing this weather through out the country all I can say is THANK GOD none of them were hurt!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • http://?? Joe H.

      momplayer,
      AMEN to that!!! May the Good Lord keep them safe!!!

    • granny mae

      momplayer,

      My heart is with you. My son and daughter-in-law live there and they too spent time looking for safety. Thank God they too were safe !
