Storm Surge!
It was only less than 2 months since the last tsunami hitting Japan. We are now seeing extreme weather in the U.S. beginning with the Apr. 25 tornado and storms hitting some 5 states (Mississippi, Alabama, Virginia, Georgia and Tennessee), with Alabama being the worst hit. Death toll totals more than 300 people.      It is grim and it is not over yet. I've just read that the South is expecting some of the worst floods since 1927 in coming weeks and months.

About this topic

Wiki

The April 25–28, 2011 tornado outbreak is an ongoing and destructive tornado outbreak that began on April 25, 2011 and is affecting the Southern and Eastern United States with catastrophic destruction especially across Alabama. The sequence produced destructive tornadoes in or around Little Rock, Arkansas; Tuscaloosa, Alabama and Birmingham, Alabama and numerous other smaller communities throughout the southern and eastern United States.

Widespread and destructive tornadoes occurred on each day of the outbreak so far, with tornadoes forecast as possible, though not likely as large or numerous, on April 28th. This outbreak is the deadliest tornado outbreak event since the 1974 Super Outbreak (which killed between 315-330 people), and the deadliest tornado outbreak to occur in the United States in the era of the modern NEXRAD doppler radar network, which was fully implemented in 1997 (surpassing the death toll of the 2008 Super Tuesday tornado outbreak, which killed 57 people).
