    Remembering the January 2012 Tornado Outbreak

    Today is the two-year anniversary of the January 2012 Tornado Outbreak that dropped an EF-3 and two EF-2 tornadoes in Alabama, killing two. This is not to be confused with the January 2010 tornado outbreak, or the April 2011 tornado outbreak.

    I'm not sure why I wasn't able to blog about this in 2012, but here is a list of Social Media updates that I did:

    HUGE moderate risk today folks: Very unusual for January! Read AccuWeather.com's detailed forecast: http://ow.ly/8BUlR

    WOW Deadly tornadoes across Southeast: http://ow.ly/8CI9f CNN says Birmingham, Tuscaloosa hit again http://ow.ly/8CJLH

    Elliot has a cool map showing the nearly 100,000 lightning strikes last night!

    Here are some images that I had saved on my computer. More information is available from the NWS in Birmingham.
