LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - The forecast, which includes thunderstorms and the possibility of strong tornadoes, is supposed to affect Arkansas, Louisiana, Oklahoma and Texas, and may produce historic levels of tornadoes in "Tornado alley."

A powerful storm system, which may bring historic levels of tornadoes, is set to travel across the southwestern and southeastern United States.


These super tornadoes may arise as low pressure systems move across the Rocky Mountains and into the southern plains and collide with moisture from the Gulf of Mexico on Saturday. This will produce thunderstorms, heavy rain, powerful winds, hail, and of course the twisters.

Pray for those who face danger.

The first bouts of severe weather will occur on Saturday, but the worst of the storms and twisters are expected on Sunday and may continue into Monday and even early Tuesday. Regions expected to be hit by these early tornadoes are the heavily populated metro areas of Dallas, Kansas City, and Omaha, before the storm will then shift eastwards towards St. Louis, Memphis, Nashville and Baton Rouge.

This storm is expected to rival other major historic storms, including an 88 tornado event that affected 12 states in April 2010, and left a 150-mile-long debris trail.

According to the Federal Emergency Management Agency, wind speeds around a tornado can reach 300 miles per hour. FEMA's website has guides for what to do before, during, and after a tornado, as well as information for enduring other severe weather systems.
