...where at least 24 people, including nine children, were killed, the state medical examiner's office said.
Earlier reports of 51 deaths were wrong.
The tornado itself has been upgraded to an EF5 storm.
We'll continue to keep an eye on the news, but I want everyone to be assured of one thing (paraphrasing a comment made in February by Neapolitan):
"...Only a fool would make the claim that this terrible tornado was "caused" by global warming - and only a bigger fool would make the claim that anyone credible will say that. After all, there's a whole world of difference between saying climate change caused a specific weather event and saying climate change made that specific weather event worse. Denialists know that, which is why they desperately work themselves into a lather making lame strawman arguments in the hopes that the lesser-informed won't recognize the difference..."
So let's see how many "informed" people will work themselves up into a lather, trying to make the case that this particular storm was DIRECTLY caused by man's use of evil fossil fuels, using this terrible tragedy to further their "cause", hoping that the lesser-informed won't know the difference.
For now, comments are closed.
I'll re-open them as the fools step forward.
