Powerful Hits Birmingham & Tuscaloosa Alabama April 27, 2011

The Damage reports suggest this is an EF5 Tornado! Extensive Damage has been reported in Western and Northern Birmingham, Alabama! have been leveled! This Tornado was over one mile wide! This same Tornado caused Extensive damage in Tuscaloosa, Alabama also! The final NWS rating of this Tornado was an EF4 but I still think the damage suggests a rating of an EF5. No one is perfect and although the NWS service does a great job I think they should have rated this tornado an EF5. The Weather Channel did an EXCELLENT job capturing and reporting this Tornado! They are on top of their game!
