Update: This single storm has already more than doubled the total national death toll from tornadoes last year. Ouch.

I know we have a few Auburn-area Oppos and a lot of school alums. I have some good friends in the area who lost someone close to them today (an 8-year-old, like my son). This area was home to me for about 6-7 years, hard to believe the death toll is already so bad given that it happened on a weekend afternoon. Very sudden.
