Record breaking!

Well, it's confirmed. The tornado in our area was the longest major one in history. It was EF 5 strength for over 130 miles non-stop. The winds were around 200 miles per hour and the path was about a mile wide most of the time.

You can see the computer generated marks showing the Alabama tornadoes and their paths below.

And here is the untouched satellite image showing the scarring left behind from The Big One.
