Very likely a major tornado with that one.

Weber Falls is being evacuated because two barges have come loose from Port of Muskogee
And are free riding the heavy current to the dam there at Weber Falls. The barges have already hit one bridge and they expect barges to bust through dam causing catastrophic flooding to Weber Falls and then head to the I40 bridge. The same I40 bridge that collapsed in the early 2000ís and killed numerous motorists due to a barge hitting it. I-40 is also currently closed in that area.

I'm seeing reports this morning of potentially "catastrophic" damage from the tornado that went straight through the middle of Jefferson City, MO overnight.  Sadly this has developed into an active severe weather week in spite of the early week miss.

Update on that- the barges were thankfully located and secured upstream from the dam. They were apparently still tied together and had run aground on a rock jetty.

By looking at it superficially, easily an EF3.  Maybe an EF4.  Will certainly have to wait for the survey.  Joplin dodged the bullet, but it nailed Jeff City instead.

I'm watching this one closely. I'm headed to Vincennes, IN. Two frames ago, it looked like it was trying to wrap around the tail.

Thanks to the era of social media mayhem, this is happening:

http://www.msn.com/en-us/weather/topstories/its-a-ticking-time-bomb-meteorologist-claims-storm-chasers-are-becoming-mobs-who-block-roads-create-traffic-jams-and-drive-on-the-wrong-side-of-highways-in-a-desperate-quest-to-capture-viral-content/ar-AABKSNc?ocid=ientp

I first saw evidence of this with the EL Reno tornado on YouTube.  The sad thing is, most aren't doing this for science, but for the thrill and the number of likes on Facebook.  You never saw this sort of thing before the era of social media, and the term "going viral."
