Tornado at the SEC Tournament

I've been watching the SEC tournament. They've apparently had a tornado at the Georgia dome. There seems to be some damage to the building. They heard the "freight train" sound. Needless to say, the game is on hold right now.

Update: The game finally resumed, and Mississippi State pulled off the victory. I have never heard sportscasters doing the weather before! They all said that it was quite scary.

Now they are saying that more severe weather is on the way through Atlanta so they've delayed the final game of the night.

Of course, everyone in the state of Mississippi was watching the game live. Marshall Ramsey, Clarion Ledger cartoonist, blogged about it here. Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal sports writer Gregg Ellis live-blogged his experience at the dome.
