Tornadoes outbreak unleashes wrath on US!!

  • 214+ dead in six states of US

  • 162 dead in Alabama state only

  • 54,000 severe weather in a month

To date, there have been more than 5,400 severe weather reports recorded this month. It has been said that this is probably the worst tornado outbreak in US in recent months.

137 tornadoes reported 

A massive thunderstorm front spawned 137 tornadoes. This particular tornado system is likely to be the deadliest in the US since the April 3-4, 1974, tornado outbreak that killed 318 people from Alabama to Canada. Alabama took the heaviest losses in that event as well, with 77 casualties. The system became the latest in a series of unusually powerful storm systems that has marched across the US in the past month, leaving April 2011 as one of the most violent weather months in decades. 

Alabama a disaster zone
