WDAM Viewpoint- Midwest tornadoes

The scale of the severe storm that produced 140 tornado warnings on Sunday became clearer Monday.

Experts from the National Weather Service are saying that the outbreak in the Midwest may go down as one of the most powerful to hit the region in decades. Our discussions lately here at the station have been centered on the recent severe weather reports around the world and how weather events have certainly been in the news a lot lately. And while the destruction in February in our area was extensive, there was no loss of life. This sobering fact causes us to reflect on just how fortunate we were last February.

This is today's viewpoint.
