Around noon, a large tornado hit Adairsville, Georgia and the surrounding areas of Rome and Calhoun.  There has been one death confirmed in Bartow County. The tornado went over I-75 tossing and overturning around a hundred cars and tractor trailers.  The interstate remains closed near Adairsville.

Tennessee had eight confirmed  touch down today killing a man in the Nashville area.  Both Governors of Georgia and Tennessee have declared state of emergencies:
Gov. Deal declares State of Emergency, Middle Tennessee hit with 8 tornadoes
Just recently, several Tennessee Congressman including Nashville Democrat Rep. Jim Cooper voted against relief aid for Hurricane Sandy victims.  Both of Georgia's Senators Chambliss and Isaakson voted against helping aid for Sandy.  Sen. Corker of Tennessee voted no in aid.  Will be interesting to see how they justify aid for their states when they closed the door on helping those hurt in the northeast.

Here's a video.  Hat tip to Weather Dude.  He can't write today because of his studies, but he is keeping us advised on Facebook.  Weatherdude said the f-3 has not been confirmed yet, but it is a major tornado.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
