Mike, what do you believe the tornado rating will be for this storm? I believe it will be a EF4. Like I've said before, glad to hear that you got in contact with your family member! Hope they find the 10 missing people alive! This storm will be one to remember here in Macon County for years and years to come!

You're right Charles...I'm hearing from my sources that it is the worst series of storms in Tennessee since 1933. AMAZING.

My thoughts are an F4 as well...we will just have to see.
