SOUTHERN TORNADOES AFTERMATH THREE FOUND ALIVE, CNN SAYS NOT TRUE?

With all the tragic stories of devastation in so many southern states, during the past week, it was comforting to finally hear a bit of good news. Early reports claimed a rescue had occurred in a small town outside of Birmingham, Alabama.  Mark Kelly, a spokesman for Jefferson County Emergency Management Agency even allegedly told Reuters that, “Three people had been trapped in a basement in Concord, Alabama, and were rescued at 3:15 p.m. today”.

Unfortunately, soon after this report, CNN confirmed that the story was false.  A person on the ground was interviewed, and said he also thought it was true, but dug deeper to find it was a “miscommunication”.

The tornadoes in the Southern states have claimed the lives of over 300 people and is said to be the second largest round of tornadoes in U.S. history.  Many residents have provided news stations with devastating stories, which made this amazing that a miracle was being reported.  Too bad it was not true, I am sure they need something to boost their spirits.

Let’s hope they can rebuild and recover from this tragedy.

(VIDEO) TORNADOES SET RECORD, 292 REPORTED IN APRIL AND 193 DEAD

This Wednesday a record number of tornadoes hit the South and Southeast, devastating many cities and causing a high number of deaths. Although it is very early in the tornado season, approximately 137 were reported yesterday along with 193 deaths. The rare tornadoes included incredible mile-wide twisters, which caused a path of damage.  Trees were uprooted, buildings were flattened, cars and trucks were tossed like toys. Fears were heightened, especially in many cities not typically used to having tornadoes.

The month of April has now seen 292 tornadoes which is a record high according to many news outlets. The average number of tornadoes is typically 163 for the month.  But what makes this more incredible is that there have been over 5,400 severe weather reports so far in April. On average, only about 3,300 severe weather reports are historically tallied in an entire April nationwide. This has caused many states to be declared a state of emergency.

This adds to the unusually high amount of natural disasters occurring across the globe, which make many question if this is the lead into 2012, which is a year said to see major changes on earth.

It is sad to hear about the loss of life, and tragic stories of so many families affected by this disaster.

THREE PUPPIES REUNITED AFTER TWISTER IN NORTH CAROLINA (VIDEO)

The recent tornadoes have caused severe destruction and set a record number of twisters in the U.S.  But there has been one good story to emerge.  A young woman in North Carolina, reunited with her three puppies, found under debris after the storms.  She said they were the only thing she has left and was excited to find them unharmed.

They are the cutest little black fluffy puppies (possibly Pomeranian), and are now officially named miracle, twister and lucky.  It is always great to hear of one positive story in the midst of so much tragedy.

(video) DEADLY TORNADO’S IN SOUTHERN STATES & MIDWEST, BREAKS U.S. RECORD

The freakish weather devastating cities around the world, continued today with incredible storms in the southern parts of the country. This marks the largest round of tornado activity in U.S. history.

Deadly storms triggered 241 twisters over 14 states and left at least 44 people dead, from
North Carolina to Oklahoma all the way through Virginia. The bad news is, weather reports suggest more storms are on the horizon.

After seeing the incredible damage of the aftermath, the young men filming above video are lucky to have made it home safely.  As many know, risking your life to obtain footage of a twister is a huge risk.

It is fascinating that the weather patterns around the world, have continued to exceed anything ever documented.  Is this a sign leading into 2012; when many believe there will be massive changes in the earth?  What do you think?
