Tornadoes Strike US
March 5, 2012 by staff
Tornadoes Strike US, At least six people were killed and one small town was “gone” as more than six dozen tornados tore across the central United States on Friday.
Five other deaths were reported, but have not yet been officially confirmed.
The latest wave of storms comes after a string of twisters killed 13 people earlier in the week.
Homes were flattened, schools and businesses were smashed, and cars, trucks and trees were tossed aside like candy as deadly funnel clouds descended on five states.
The National Weather Service had received 74 reports of tornados in seven states by Friday evening, bringing the week’s total to 126, though not all were confirmed.
More could be on their way as a “particularly dangerous” tornado watch was set to continue until early Saturday in four states.
“This is a particularly dangerous situation,” the NSW warned.
“Destructive tornados, large hail to 2.5 inches (6.4 centimeters), thunderstorm wind gusts to 70 miles (112 kilometers) per hour and dangerous lightening are possible.”
