Today's HQ PSA - Livestreaming Tornado Chases

Update: Tuscaloosa appears to be getting hammered at the moment, including parts of the Univ. of Alabama. Large tornado reported on the ground with widespread damage.

Update: Now out of Tuscaloosa and heading directly for the southside of Birmingham.

Since Global Tornadoing is currently affecting huge portions of the Southeast, this might be something of interest to a number of you who live there and would like to know when it's time to quit commenting in the threads and dive for cover. And then crawl back out of the ruins and continue sniping at each other about whatever it is you were sniping about.

Here's a site called Severe Studios which features a number of livestreaming storm chasers at various locations around the country. They drop in and out often depending on conditions so refresh occasionally to see if anyone's actually on a tornado. Or to see what might be headed your way.

Active warnings underway include parts of Missouri, Arkansas, Tennessee, Alabama and Mississippi, the last of which appears to getting the shit kicked out of it. Georgia and North Carolina appear to be next on the hit list.

There's also a big glob of tornado watches stretching from western New York, covering most of Pennsylvania and down into W. Virginia, Maryland and northern Virginia, including the D.C. area.

Some additional resources you might want to stay tuned to:

The Weather Channel though I don't think they're livestreaming.

Weather Underground (Not the radical 60s group) Also not livestreaming but have really good, up-to-date Nexrad maps.

Finally, while not a single source, most TV stations in even the medium-est of markets seem to have their own live storm coverage, helicopters and so forth:

You can find all of them here.

This is already a record-breaking storm season and only looks to get worse. Hope all of you stay safe, along with your loved ones (or even despised ones). After all, we need you guys here so we have someone to kick around. And LauraW needs fresh souls.

You can also haz thread to tell us all about your most horrific storm stories, tornado-ish or not.

Integrative Complexity

Tornados are much like those who we meet in the glorious hole of nature that exists between us and the sky, though often they are over-exuberent when it comes to sucking out the very essences of our lives. Among other things. Like barns and stuff.
