And now we are getting hit in Huntsville - we are OK but already 4 deaths reported in the first of what is supposed to be 4 waves

Current headline on FOX is: 6 fatalities in Alabama

Prayers for those in the areas being hit SO hard right now.

We survived - had some leaves and small branches/spanish moss to clean up.

Feeling pretty sorry for those less fortunate though - Pensacola FL is getting slammed with rain and I saw where a whole trailer park was wiped out in Limestone County AL

Please also put the folks here in Mississippi on the prayer list. I have heard at least 12 have been killed and there are some people whose whereabouts are unknown. That news right there is a horrible thing. It is very strange to be sitting in your house with family and in a matter of seconds, you don't know where other family members are. I speak from experience from riding out a tornado in 1998. Only lasted a few seconds but felt like a lot longer.

My uncle, who lives on crescent lake in Pensacola woke up find a sea-doo, still attached to the trailer, sitting in his backyard. Along with tons of other debris. The lake flooded about 8-10' above normal, then blew out the levee dam and drained across a major highway. Cars washed off into ditches. Lots of damage in Pensacola area.

Yeah P'Cola got slammed pretty bad as well Got a few messages from friends down there this morning - the rain has stopped and the sun is out -- but some places down there got over 22" of rain in a 24 hr period!

Here is a phone photo of a friend's motorhome...sheesh!
