Winter Tornadoes Rip the US Twice This Week

Waves of tornadoes at this time of year?  The U.S. doesn't get tornadoes until much later in the year or at least that used to be the case.  But that was then, this is now.

It can't be climate change, that's a hoax.   Why, just ask the folks of Marysville, Indiana except you can't because the local sheriff  says the town is "completely gone."

Forecasters at the National Weather Service’s Storm Prediction Center in Oklahoma said tornado threats as serious as Friday’s only happen several times a year.

“Maybe five times a year we issue what is kind of the highest risk level for us at the Storm Prediction Center,” forecaster Corey Mead said. “This is one of those days.”

Another tornado ripped part of the roof off a prison in Huntsville, Alabama but authorities were quick to assure the public that no inmates escaped.
