Pain, loss linger a decade after tornadoes hammer 6 states

  Pain, loss linger a decade after tornadoes hammer 6 states BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) — For Tom Sanders, it’s the void left by the death of a cousin and the man’s wife, killed when a tornado mowed through a placid Alabama valley. To Markedia Wells, it’s the stolen innocence of her sons, who still get nervous anytime it starts raining. Darryl Colburn laments a lost way of life in his hometown, which was all but leveled in seconds. Waves of tornadoes pummeled the Eastern U.S. over four days in the spring of 2011, killing more than 320 people in six states, including about 250 who died in Alabama on April 27 of that year. A decade has passed, but time has been unable to erase the pain or replace the losses inflicted by the terrifying storms.

A tornado warning for parts of Mississippi and Alabama has been issued for the third consecutive day until 4pm CDT. That zone is home to more than 11 million people and includes the cities of Nashville, Tennessee; Birmingham, Alabama; Baton Rouge, Louisiana; and Jackson, Mississippi, forecasters said. 'We´ll see all three threats as far as hail, wind and tornadoes on Tuesday,' said Mike Edmonston, a National Weather Service (NWS) meteorologist in Mississippi. According to forecasters, the heat and humidity in the Deep South will help to reinvigorate the atmosphere throughout the day

(CNN) A large tornado touched down Tuesday in Kansas, striking the southeast portion of Lawrence, according to the National Weather Service.

Amelia Lewis rented a car for the drive up from Jacksonville, Florida, to Atlanta for her U.S. Women’s Open sectional qualifier. Little did she know that she’d spend more time in that Mustang watching Netflix and taking naps than she would be hitting golf shots.

For a second consecutive day play was suspended for most of the day at Druid Hills Golf Club, where four inches of rain and a nearby tornado wreaked havoc on the course on Monday.

Tuesday wasn’t much better, with play resuming at 1 p.m. and stopping at 1:48 p.m.

Lewis got 3 ½ holes in each day and holds a share of the lead at 2 under alongside amateurs Alice Hodge and Pauline Roussin-Bouchard. Three players are slated to advance from the 36-hole qualifier to the U.S. Women’s Open at Olympic June 3-6 in San Francisco.

“The course was so destroyed from all the wind and rain,” said Lewis. “There were a few trees down and they had to repair the bunkers and everything.”

When the tornado warning hit, Lewis said players headed down to the cart barn underneath the clubhouse. Druid Hills superintendent Joe Hollis tweeted that the course received four inches of rain on Monday, exactly one inch more than the entire month of April. As of 5 p.m. Tuesday, Hollis said another 1.1 inches of rain had fallen and it had yet to stop well into the evening.
