  1. I read an update on the situation pertaining to the tornados that shook the Southeast. Sixteen people were pronounced dead, but that number is now incorrect, as it is now up to twenty people dead. Fifteen of those were killed in southern Georgia.On Monday, the people of Georgia were warned that gusts of wind could reach about 40 mph or more. On top of a wind advisory, there was a flood warning in Charlotte, North Caroline. It was said that it was an EF-2 tornado,so winds that were ranging at around 111-135 mph.
