Alabama hit a 3 pointer with no time left on the clock and then a tornado tried to come down on the Ga. Dome. :eek:

ATLANTA -- A severe storm ripped two holes Friday in the side of the Georgia Dome during the Southeastern Conference tournament.

With Mississippi State leading Alabama 64-61 with 2:11 left in overtime, a loud blast was heard inside the dome. A section of the dome's roof was ripped open, dropping debris.

The National Weather Service had issued a tornado warning for the Atlanta area at 9:26 p.m. EDT Radar indicated a storm capable of producing a tornado located about six miles west of Atlanta.

It wasn't immediately known if a tornado struck the 16-year-old building, though a roaring noise was heard inside when the storm struck


:eek:

Yeah I was watching when it happened, it was nuts. Everyone just looked up at the roof and then started running up the stairs.

CNN Center, Georgia Dome, and Philips arena all damaged. SEC tournament going on at Georgia dome, and Hawks playing a Philips arena.... A friend at CNN Center says all the windows are blown out, and the whole building shook...

Now there is another possible tornado headed right towards the Atlanta airport! This could be ugly!

I'd copy the text for you lazy bastards, but I'm sure the content will probably be changing rapidly throughout the night.

WSB has one of those high zoot radars, and it is showing constant rotation on the ground. My buddy says light poles are twisted off at the ground, and the roof of the GA dome has been ripped open.

It's ugly super cells everywhere. Newton take cover immediately the guy said. He said rotation on the ground.

I'm on the phone with a friend who was at the Hawk's game. He said that a couple of windows blew out and he heard the ol train noise. Not good.

They just confirmed a tornado DID actually touch in downtown. Lucky and P'tree St. was the worst hit.

They are saying that the pressure dropped so low in the building that water and sewer pipes burst, and the building is being flooded....

Damn, that's scary. I feel sorry for the cameraman that was up on that catwalk. I'm surprised there's never been a major catastrophe at a sporting event, it's probably only a matter of time before it happens.

Cotton Mill Lofts had a building collapse. People are looting the area hit by the storm and the areas without power are reporting shootings.....idiots.

And my peace study class tries and make me believe that humanity is civil.. My argument the first day of class was, get rid of oil and power in the US and watch the anarchy..

"Peace study" class? Jeez, Valiant, I thought we were taught garbage back in the day. What the heck is peace study?

Start an flaming argument with the prof/TA and see how long it takes him to exert his power over you.

On the bright side, I'll definitely be flipping over to see game one of UGA/Kentucky's double header after watching the C-USA Championship.

Since they're moving the games to the Georgia Tech campus, only family, cheerleaders, and the bands of each school will be allowed inside the arena.

Wow, I would be furious if I bought tickets and flew down there.

Ultra Peanut

Don't worry, they got tickets to the aquarium. That's better, anyways.

From a guy who works there:

i've opened up every show with a joke.

"Who had tickets to the basketball game?"

[hands raise]

"Don't worry, they're going to let you exchange them for all the Falcons tickets you want."I'm surprised he's not dead yet.

Speaking of which, 42-13 at halftime is one hell of beatdown.

Unreal.

Stupid cheerleaders and families. I wanted to hear nothing but balls bouncing and shoes squeaking.
