So some people did not like my commentary. Well, as someone who's seen the history of tornado prediction evolve here in Oklahoma, the reason I was frustrated was because I knew that the death toll would be high and the reason is because they had nobody on the ground to CONFIRM a tornado for the time I was watching that Ustream.

The Weather Channel also did not know. Nobody seemed to know if a tornado was on the ground at a time when an EF5/EF4 WAS ON THE GROUND. These days, that astounds me. Especially when the National Weather Service had warned about long-track, and large tornadoes earlier. All they had was doppler/radar indicated which does not scare people, unfortunately.

But the not knowing leads to people just ignoring the tornado sirens and not fully understanding what they need to do. If they see a giant tornado on TV - it scares people into taking serious cover. It's incredibly important to saving lives. So everything I said was just frustration because I knew lives were in danger. Eventually they did catch it on tower cam. Just not during this video.

I think the national weather service needs to change their tornado watches to compensate for these kinds of days. There will be studies done into why there were so many deaths.

HERE'S WHAT I WROTE WHEN I POSTED THIS:

Bad day in Alabama. Wedge and very large tornado apparently headed toward Tuscaloosa Alabama. Today, in this area there will be numerous tornadoes and they will be large. This could turn out to be the largest tornado outbreak for April, ever.
